EGGPLANT CHEDDAR

I got this classic Italian recipe from food network. Its actually named as ''Eggplant Parmesan''. I just named it as 'Cheddar' because I used cheddar cheese instead of parmesan. Like the recipe lasangna, this too can be prepared as layers. But I have prepered under single layer. We really liked it soo much and its outstanding and incredibly easy to make.If you need a quick supper,somthing filling then this recipe would be perfect. It just taste as good as the 'Chicken Cheddar'. There is no particular measurment for the amount of sause and cheese. Add according to ur choice. This eggplant cheddar goes well as a side dish with any pasta recipe or speghetti with meat balls.


INGREDIENTS.

4 Sliced Eggplant.

Pasta sause. [any of ur fav choice]

2 Cloves of chopped Garlic (Or) Garlic powder.

1/2 cup All purpose flour.

2 Eggs.

1 cup Italian seasoned Bread crumbs.

Handful of cheese on each slice.[ I used mixed of mozzarella and cheddar]

Salt and pepper to taste.

1 tsp Oil.

METHOD.

Cut eggplant into circle about 1/4 inch slices. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Let it sit for 15 min. Thus keeping for few min salt will release some of its moisture. Wipe up the excess water with the help of tissue.


In a bowl break egg and whisk it. It should be enough to dip the marinated eggplants. On a plate combine flour, salt and pepper. On another plate spread breadcrumbs. Coat the eggplants into the flour mixture on both the sides. Then dip into egg mixture and finally to the bread crumbs mixture, pressing lightly on both the sides.


Heat 1 tbs oil in a pan. Add garlic and place the eggplant slices gently. On a low heat cook it on both the sides until slight brown. Drain on the paper towels.

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Now spread the pasta sause as per needed on the baking dish. Place the eggplant slice. Again top it with some more pasta sause.

Lastly spread the slices with cheese.

Bake them for about 30 min or until the cheese melts and form a slight borwn colour. Allow it to sit for another 10 min. Serve hot.


Enjoy!!

That is great recipe but it is not vegan as u used cheese/egg (which is an animal derivated product).
