Monday’s Menu Musings

We had this for dinner the other night and it was excellent – it comes from a new vegetarian cookbook I requested for Christmas…I finished the left-overs today and am already ready to make it again!

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup italian breadcrumbs

1. Dip eggplant into egg, coat with breadcrumbs and heat olive oil in skillet. Cook eggplant 3-4 minutes turning once until golden.
