Ingredients

  • 1 large eggplant
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Instructions

  • Start by preparing the eggplant: wash the eggplant and trim off the green end. You can peel the skin if you like. Next, slice eggplant into 1/2" disks. Place all disks in colander or cooling rack set over baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and let sit for at least 30 minutes
  • Next, melt butter in a bowl. Mix breadcrumbs, spices and Parmesan cheese in another bowl. 
  • Dip each eggplant disk into butter first, then breading mixture. Place on aluminum foil or parchment paper lined baking sheet. 
  • Bake in 400 degrees F oven for 15 minutes, then flip each disk and baked for 7 more minutes. The eggplant should be golden brown and the breading crispy.
  • Serve as side dish, appetizer or use in eggplant Parmesan. 

Notes

Eggplant skin is completely edible. It's a personal preference, just like zucchini. You can peel the skin off or leave it.
