Baked Eggplant Patties

RECIPE – Baked Eggplant Patties
The Vegetarian Librarian

1 large eggplant
1/4 cup olive oil (approximately)
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 tsp sea salt + 1 Tbs
1/4 tsp garlic powder
fresh ground pepper

Peel eggplant in stripes longways, leaving some of the skin on. Remove ends and cut in 1″ slices. Place slices in a strainer, cover with about a tablespoon of sea salt and let drain for about a half hour to remove bitterness.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a shallow bowl, combine breadcrumbs, 1/2 tsp salt and spices. Place eggplant slice in breadcrumb mixture, cover evenly and tap off any extra breading. Place on a well oiled cookie sheet. Repeat until all are covered with breading. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove pan from oven, flip patties, drizzle with a little more oil and bake for another 15 minutes. If slices still aren’t crisp to your liking, flip the patties again and bake for another 5 minutes.

Great with pasta or for sandwiches!
