    Used different ingredients. This recipe was pretty good. However, I suggest to not use plain breadcrumbs. If you do, add some spices of your own. I made this last night with plain breadcrumbs. After I sampled one I realised how bland it tasted. So I seasoned the breadcrumbs with salt pepper, oregano, basil, etc. That definitley gave it the extra punch I needed after using plain breadcrumbs.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Cooked for my husband and he absolutely loved it. I even double dipped into the egg again and then dipped into grated parmesan cheese for additional flavour. This recipe was extremely easy and I will definitely do this one again.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This is the simplest tastiest recipe for eggplant. I love it. I added some salt and coursely ground black pepper to the egg mixture and used seasoned breadcrumbs for more flavour. EXCELLENT!  -  29 Sep 2008
