Eggplant Parmesan

Before you say ewww and click on to the next blog you want to read, hear me out. This is one of those recipes that you shouldn't knock until you try it. Then, if you still hate it, by all means knock away!

How can you go wrong with something that is fried... and then smothered in spaghetti sauce and mozzarella?
The recipe that I used to cook the eggplant is here. I had never heard of putting salt on your eggplant and letting it "weep" to rid it of bitter juices.
I was the only one who ended up eating the eggplant. In his defense, Tim did try it. And stated that he did not like it. I definitely think it's worth a try. One decent sized eggplant could feed an entire family. If you grow it yourself or are given one, that's a pretty good deal. I have no idea what they go for in the store.

We'd like to thank our sponsors for this meal. Amanda- rice pasta. Tim's parents- eggplant. My uncle Randy- fresh green beans. We never turn down free food. Well, almost never. :)

SO glad you enjoyed....I still hate eggplant. But you can do the same draining thing and then grill as well.

one decent sized eggplant could feed a family - or I can eat the whole thing by myself, too. I love fried eggplant!
