September 8 Eggplant Snack Sticks

Yum! I had no idea what to do with eggplant but I purchased it anyway. It was a Japanese eggplant and it looked so pretty. We have really been focusing on Eating Rainbows and purple is a hard color to find. Eggplant fits the bill but I did  not know what to do with it. Now I do, and so do the girls. I may need to change the name of the blog. Check the pictures below to see why.
Eggplant Snack Sticks (via Allrecipes.com)

  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan (not shredded, oops!)
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute (we used one egg)
Cut eggplant into 1/2 inch pieces lengthwise and then into 1/2 inch sticks. Dip sticks in beaten egg. Mix remaining ingredients and shake eggplant sticks in breading. Place on greased baking sheet and broil for 3 minutes. Turn and broil another 2 minutes.

Audrey's Tasks:

  1. Crack eggs

  3. Dip sticks in egg and breading
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Cut eggplant
  3. Bake
Yum! They even taste good cold. The girls liked them as well.

  1. I'm so glad to find this recipe! I got about four small eggplant through our CSA share last week and couldn't come up with what to make. I already did fried egg plant earlier this summer, but this sounds like something all of us would eat, so I'm going to give it a try.
