How to make it

  • 1. Peel eggplant and slice 1/8 inch thick.
  • 2. Whip eggs together and place in a shallow bowl for an egg wash.
  • 3. Mix cornflake crumbs and romano/parmesan cheese together in a shallow container and dredge eggplant slices in the egg wash and then the dry mixture.
  • 4. Put enough olive oil in a hot skillet to coat the bottom about 1/16 inch deep. Adjust to medium high heat.
  • 5. Fry eggplant slices, turning frequently, until golden brown and crispy. Remove to paper towel to drain. Cover with second paper towel and add layers of eggplant as needed.
  • 6. Place eggplant in a preheated 350 degree oven for a few minutes to crispen and degrease them. Remove and serve immediately.

    Now, back home in Pennsylvania Dutch country...we make'em with 4C brand bread crumbs, because they already have 4 cheeses in the crumbs, (hence the name 4C). My mom used to slice the eggplant as thin as thin you could almost see through them...then a short soak in some salted water...then into the egg and then the bread crumbs. Mmmmmm. That's what I'm talkin' about!

    I've got another one out there for Scalloped Eggplant. Another subterfuge to get the family past the idea. LOL. Eggplant has a checkered reputation, kinda like Okra.

    Panko sounds like a good alternative. I've done it with old bread crumbs too. Bring on the changes, I'll be more than happy to try them.

    Often you will only find Romano/Parmesan Cheese mix at the grocery. If you grate your own then that is not a problem. One thing to remember, both Parmesan and Romano when cooked become the "stinky feet" cheeses. So keep the air spray handy and the doors open. LOL.
