Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This looks like a wonderful recipe for Eggplant Parmigiana--which I love, but stopped making years ago because of the high calories in the original version which utilizes fried eggplant. Thanks to the Mr. Food test kitchen. Rachel

I have made this as is and absolutely love it!! Great diabetic recipe.

O.K. this recipe is very similar to the Adkin's eggplant parmesan. The only real difference is that you omit the flour completely, or use the Adkin's flour blend in place of the regular flour. I dip first in egg mixture then into a plate of seasoned grated parmesan cheese and omit the flour step altogether.

this sounds like it will be really great with a salad and that's a meal. going to try this a great way to use eggplant in a differ way

What is the serving size? I know there are six servings but how much is allowed per serving? Thanks!!

Thank you for your comment. We are working on providing serving sizes for our recipes. Stay tuned!

A technique to improve your dish, would be to peel and slice your eggplant, salt it lightly, then place it in a colander (for 10 to 15 minutes) to allow some of the excess moisture to drip out of them. This will help your eggplant from becoming mushy.

Yup! Then be sure to rinse off the excess salt.

I am impressed with the nutritional info. Thank you so much!
