Garden View * Eggplant

Since I was planting my garden in a container this year – I plant small Japanese (Mini) eggplant. I seem to have a bumper crop this year so I am making one of my favorite meals to eat. Lisa

How big do mini eggplants get?2 to 3 inchesDeep purple, egg-shaped fruit should be harvested at baby size-2 to 3 inches, and are delicious roasted or in dips and salads. Thornless leaves and calyxes allow for painless harvesting and makes Patio Baby child-friendly, too

My Recipe :

  • 2 to 3 mini eggplants (depending on size) , peeled and cut into 1/3 inch slices
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 12 cups seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 14cup  olive oil
  • 3cups spaghetti sauce
  • 12lb shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 13cup grated  Parmesan cheese
  • Arrange a layer of eggplant slices in a colander. Sprinkle generously with salt. Continue layering and salting all eggplant slices. Let stand 30 minutes. Rinse and pat dry. Dip each eggplant slice in beaten egg, and dredge with breadcrumbs.
  • Heat oil in a heavy skillet. Over medium high heat fry eggplant in hot oil about 2 minutes per side until golden. Drain on absorbent paper.
  • Preheat oven to temperature 350°F Arrange half the eggplant slices in the bottom of baking dish sprayed lightly with nonstick spray. Spread half the sauce over top. Sprinkle with half the mozzarella and half the Parmesan. Repeat layers.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes or until mixture is bubbly.
