Baked Eggplant Fritters

Image

These always go quickly in my house.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 eggplant
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup breading of your choice (I like to use a mix of matzah meal and wheat germ)
  • spices/herbs of your choice (I like to use parsley and garlic powder)
  • olive oil

What you’ll do:

  1. Slice the eggplant into long pieces (like rods) that are about 1/2 inch thick.
  2. Beat the eggs and pour onto a plate.
  3. Mix breading with spices and put on a separate plate.
  4. Dip each piece of eggplant in egg and then in the breading. 
  5. Lay each piece on a cooking sheet.
  6. Drizzle — or spritz — a small amount of olive oil over each piece of breaded eggplant.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees until done. (This is usually about 30 minutes.)
  8. Serve with lemon to squeeze over and tomato sauce to dip in. Find out here how to make your own sauce from scratch.

Enjoy!
