Garlicky eggplant meltsFrom juels 5 years ago
- 1 lg eggplant, thinly sliced in circles shopping list
- 1 egg, lightly beaten shopping list
- 1tbsp water shopping list
- 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs shopping list
- oil for frying shopping list
- 3/4 cup mayo shopping list
- 3 cloves of garlic, pressed through a garlic press shopping list
- 1/2 tsp of salt shopping list
- 3 medium tomatoes, chopped shopping list
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese (like cheddar or colby) shopping list
How to make it
- Slice the eggplant in thin circles. Salt them and let sit for 10 min.
- Make an egg wash by mixing the beaten egg with 1 tbsp. of water. Dip the eggplant slices in the egg wash first, then in the Italian bread crumbs on both sides.
- Fry on both sides in preheated oiled pan until lightly brown. You will need to keep adding oil as soon as it is absorbed by the eggplant, otherwise it could get a dark coating.
- Remove fried eggplant to paper towels to absorb the oil.
- Make the mayo spread: combine mayo with pressed garlic and 1/2 tsp of salt. Mix well.
- Divide the mayo spread evenly between the eggplant slices. Transfer the eggplant into a lightly oiled baking dish.
- Chop the tomatoes and layer over eggplant slices. Sprinkle with salt. Arrange shredded cheese over top of tomatoes.
- Bake in preheated 400F oven just until cheese is melted, for about 3-4 minutes.
- Serve warm and enjoy them melting in your mouth.
