30 Min

Our Not Fried Eggplant takes the hard work and the frying pan out of making this favorite Italian go-along. Our baked eggplant version is a healthy option you'll love.

What You'll Need

  • 1 medium to large eggplant
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan or Romano Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup vegetable oil

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Slice eggplant into 1/2-inch slices, then into 1-inch strips.
  2. In a bowl, combine bread crumbs, cheese, salt, and pepper. Place oil in a shallow dish; add eggplant strips and toss to coat.
  3. Then toss strips in bread crumb mixture and place on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake about 20 minutes, then turn and bake an additional 5 minutes, until golden brown.


Serve with sour cream and chives, if desired.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I wonder how this would be with "fried" green tomatoes I love them and this would really cut down on oil and frying also zucchini sticks would be great I grow tomatoes and zucchini in my tiny garden every summer Can't wit till summer

great idea will certainly try it this way I have always fried my eggplant this way is so much easier and uses less oil This site has many wonderful ideas and recipe

would this recipe work with squash?

We have another recipe on our site called Fiery Zucchini Fries. It's a similar method to this one. We have not tried it with yellow squash, so we can not guarantee the results, but you can certainly give it a try. Good luck and enjoy!

good for a friday or lent meal
