i have always made a great eggplant parmesan, but it was always ovo-veg and i have not come up with a perfect replacement for the egg wash i used for the breading.. i have tried egg replacer and a flour batter mixture, but it is just not the same. i think the egg wash was a barrier for the oil because now it is too greasy.. i guess i could bake the eggplant, but i would really rather come up with a good alternative for the egg wash..
here is the recipe :
make your fav spagetti sauce.
take a eggplant and slice into thin slices.
container 1: whole wheat flour seasoned with italian spices.
container 2: finely crushed whole wheat crackers
container 3: egg wash (help)
heat oil in frying pan. about a 1/2 deep of oil.
dip slices of eggplant in eggwash, flour, eggwash and then crushed crackers. fry until golden brown.
remove from pan and sprinkle with "parmesan cheese" .
do this for all slices of eggplant.
once all of the eggplant is fried place in a single layer on cookie sheet then cover each slice with a slice of "mozzerella cheese" put until broiler til "cheese" has melted..
put eggplant on a plate and top with the sauce.
so all i need is a way to keep the breading as yummy as it was ovo-veg.. i have replacement for the cheese, so now all i need is one for the egg!
(hope that recipe made sense it was off the top of my head)
so please help!
