  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons salt over eggplant rounds in colander; allow to drain at least 30 minutes. Rinse salt off the eggplant.
  3. Spread bread crumbs into a shallow bowl and beat egg in a separate bowl. Dip eggplant into egg, allowing excess egg to drip off the eggplant; press into bread crumbs until eggplant slices are evenly coated on both sides.
  4. Arrange coated eggplant on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  6. Mix remaining 1 teaspoon salt with ricotta cheese in a bowl. Spoon ricotta cheese mixture onto each eggplant.
  7. Bake eggplant in the oven until cheese is heated through, 5 to 7 minutes.
  8. Place 1 eggplant slice onto each pita chip; top with a cherry tomato and basil leaf.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can also use fresh mozzarella in place of the ricotta if desired.
  • Crackers or toast rounds can be substituted for the pita chips.
  • If eggplant rounds are large, cut in half so the eggplant fits on your crackers.
