Eggplant Sticks

Posted by Laura

With eggplant season in full swing, we've had to get a little creative with our variations of recipes for these beautiful purple vegetables (or fruits, whatever you want to call them).



This recipe is from my mother-in-law. Her Italian blood thrives when she's in the kitchen. I call these Eggplant Sticks, and they are de-licious.



Eggplant Sticks

Ingredients:
-1 Eggplant
-1 Egg
-1/2 cup milk
-3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
-1 cup marinara sauce

Directions:
1. Peel skin off the eggplant.
2. Cut into strips, approximately 2 inches long.
3. Egg and bread the strips.
4. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes on a baking sheet (preferably with a cooling rack between the strips and the bottom of the baking sheet). If you really want to get frisky, try sprinkling a little bit of mozzarella cheese on top for the last minute. Mmmmm.
5. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.

  1. Thanks for the recipe! Thinking of trying this with fairytale eggplant since it's what I got in the farmshare basket this week. I've been searching high and low for good eggplant recipes!
