Ingredients: eggplant, sliced in 1/2" thick slices
heavy cream

parmesan cheese
spaghetti/marinara sauce
shredded italian blend cheese, or mozzarella
How To Prepare: I didn't put any measurements on the ingredients because it just depends on how much eggplant you're fixing. I usually just do one eggplant at a time, which makes two meals for me - I usually get about 10 slices out of one of them.

After you slice the eggplant, salt it and put it between paper towels to absorb the bitter juices. Let it sit like this for about an hour. Blot off the juices. Then beat your egg, and mix it with the heavy cream. For one eggplant, I use 1 egg, and about 1/4 cup of cream. Heat some oil for frying in a skillet. Put some parmesan cheese in a small bowl. Dip the eggplant first in the egg/cream mixture, then in the parmesan cheese, then put it into the heated oil. You'll want to use a medium temperature, maybe a little less than medium, or else your parmesan cheese will get browned/burned before the eggplant is cooked.

After you've fried all the eggplant pieces, and drained them on paper towels to soak up the excess grease, place the individual slices on a cookie sheet. Top them with a scant spoonful of spaghetti sauce (this is where the "bad carbs" are, so go as lightly as you can, unless you're using lowcarb spaghetti sauce), and then the shredded cheese. Stick the pan under the broiler in your oven just until the cheese is melted and I like mine a little browned.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Tasty meal!

I really liked this recipe and made a few modifications because of what I had on hand. I seasoned the parmesan with italian seasonings and garlic powder. Also, I fried up some zucchini as well and layered the little pizzas as folows: eggplant, a little tomato sauce, sun dried tomatoes, zucchini, a little more sauce, mozzarella cheese. Wonderful!

Pretty Good. Eggplant became soggy after I put the sauce on and baked them. Still were good.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): The Italian taste we have missed
Cons: Little bit of time consuming

We just had this and loved it!! My husband wants this regularly. I sliced my eggplant down the middle and then fairly thin slices, fried somewhat crisp. Hubby wants to try with some toppings, don't know if that will work but will try. This is definitely a keeper.
