Recipe: Eggplant Parmesan

Hey everybody, I am away on vacation in Northwestern Ontario, but I still found time to rustle up a recipe for you to try.  Found this one on the Men’s Health website.  Click here to see the site.

Recipe by Richie Palmer, owner of Mulberry Street Pizza in Beverly Hills, CA

What you’ll need:

1 eggplant, peeled and cut into ¼-inch thick slices

1 egg

1 cup milk

½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

½ cup Italian breadcrumbs

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

½ cup shredded Mozzarella cheese

1 medium tomato,

thinly sliced A few basil leaves (optional)

How to make it:

1. Set up your breading station. In a small bowl, blend the egg, milk, salt and pepper. Dump the breadcrumbs into a shallow dish.

2. Dip the eggplant, one slice at a time, first into the egg mixture and then coat thoroughly with the breadcrumbs. Set aside.

3. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium. Add the eggplant and cook until golden brown and tender, 3 to 5 minutes per side, sprinkling the cheese over the eggplant during the last minute of cook to melt. Allow the cooked slices to rest on a paper towel to absorb excess oil. 4.

Top the eggplant with tomato slices and garnish with fresh basil.

Serves 2.
