Baked Eggplant chips

This week’s Vindicate the Vegetable is eggplant. I’ve never actually bought eggplant or cooked with it before. I found quite a few recipes that sounded good (including my mother-in-law’s eggplant-Parmesan) but decided on these baked chips. I bought two baby eggplant instead of one big one.
My mother-in-law said to pick an eggplant that was long and skinny instead of fat. She said the fat ones have more seeds and the skinny ones are more “meaty” These chips went great with our turkey meatball subs and were very easy to make. We’ll definitely make these again!
Eggplant Chips – adapted from The Foodie Fashionista (originally from Cooking Light)
1 medium zucchini – I used 2 baby eggplant
1 Tbsp Kraft Free Italian Salad Dressing
1/8 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice zucchini (eggplant) into 1/4″ slices. Toss in bowl with Italian dressing.

Mix breadcrumbs and cheese in a bowl and dredge coated zucchini slices through mixture. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and lay zucchini (eggplant) flat.

Bake for 20 minutes, flipping chips once halfway through. After 20 minutes, remove baking sheet from oven and turn broiler on high. Broil on each side for 2-3 minutes. Serve with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.

Yields 2 servings.

Note: Definitely be sure to keep the slices at least 1/4″ thick.

    That is a gorgeous salad. Have you thought about adding some mango to it?

    I have a recipe similar with mangos and strawberries and it is delicious. I have made it with strawberries alone and it was just as good, though.

    I have not thought to add mango to this salad. Sounds intriguing.
