Mini Eggplant Parm

Thursday's treat!!!

I love my toaster oven, such a life saver when I get home and don't want much fuss.

Here is another go to meal we enjoy and this time I am using mini Eggplants!!

-mini Eggplants
-breadcrumbs (this time I used Italian seasoned one but it can be plain)
-pasta sauce
-Parmesan cheese
-Mozzarella cheese

Turn toaster oven knob to bake as the temp is rising take 2 small or medium bowls out in 1 mix your eggs in the other pour out your breadcrumbs. The amount varies with number of people. I used 2 eggs for 2 mini Eggplants and 1 cup of breadcrumbs.
Dip in the eggs, dip in breadcrumbs, shack off excess and place on tray.
Heat for about 20 minutes and remove.

While that's going on I tend to start cleaning up so nothing piles up on me and when my dinner is done all I have to do is clean what's left of what I used and I'm out the kitchen.

After 20 minutes I remove tray, set the Eggplant aside for quick minute while I spread sauce on tray and re-lay the slices out.
I add the Mozzarella, sprinkle the Parm cheese and a little extra sauce and place tray back in the toaster oven for another 15 to 20 minutes while cheese is melting nicely.

When I see the cheese has melted and my Eggplants have some nice coloring I remove and serve.
Sometimes I also sprinkle some parsley on top but I say whatever you like and want to try go ahead and do!!!

I find that using the smaller Eggplants saves time and money. Sometimes the bigger ones are too much for a smaller group of people and it goes to waste. They aren't as quick to make and take a little more time to prepare.

Fun in the kitchen, quick and easy enjoy!!
Always stress free xo
