Chilling the coated slices before baking makes the eggplant extra-crispy.

How to Make It

Step 1

Spread about 1/2 teaspoon mayonnaise over both sides of eggplant slices using a rubber spatula. Combine crackers and cheese in a shallow dish; dredge eggplant in cracker mixture. Place eggplant in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; chill 2 hours.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 3

Bake eggplant at 425° for 15 minutes; turn eggplant slices over, and bake an additional 5 minutes or until crisp.

This works really well with small eggplants, such as the white ones or japanese. I like it using the mayo as a base for the crumbs, but that makes a bigger mess than just using an egg wash. Also, I sub panko for the cracker crumbs & add pepper to the breading. 1-2 small eggplants make a good appetizer to nibble on while cooking dinner.
