My family really enjoyed this recipe. I made a few changes: I sliced the eggplant a little thinner and sauted it and the onions in olive oil instead of vegetable oil. To add a little more flavor I sprinkled garlic powder on top. Instead of finishing it in the pan I placed it on toast on a baking sheet and then put mozzarella cheese on it. Then I put it in the oven until the cheese melted. I will definatly make this again! Read More

This is a good recipe for something quick and easy to do with eggplant. The flavor was good but seemed to be missing something. Read More

This was delicious. My family, who are not eggplant lovers ate every last scrap. I did make some changes. I seasoned the eggplant with garlic, salt and pepper while frying in extra virgin olive oil, then removed to a cookie sheet and topped with flavored bread crumb, onion, a slice of tomato and cheese. I heated this in a 350 oven until the cheese melted. This will definitely become a regular. Read More

I made this as a side dish, but it could easily be a main course. It was so delicious! I used this recipe as a base and followed the suggestions of other reviewers. These were my changes: I seasoned the eggplant with salt, pepper, and granulated garlic. I topped with the onions, then parmesan cheese. This was topped with tomato, then cheese. I didn't have enough tomato for all the eggplant slices, and in tasting the finished product, the tomato slices were a WORLD better than the ones with no tomato. Also, I only had processed cheese slices; they were creamy, but I think a nice sharp cheddar would have been better. This will be a great summer staple! Read More

Delicious!!! Very easy and great. I made this recipe healthy by not frying the eggplant and onions but just sauteing them in PAM. Another thing I did to make this healthier was I put fat-free cheese instead of regular cheese. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

This was just delish! What a great idea. I didn't bread mine as others did, and after sautéing the eggplant, I put it in a tart dish, covered with sautéed garlic and red onions and baked at 350 for about 20mins, then covered with extra sharp cheddar, popped it back in the oven until the cheese bubbled. We loved it and my 3yo even had seconds! Read More

Loved it. I went with less oil though I dunked the eggplant slices quickly in Greek dressing and sprinkled some breadcrumbs mixed with oil on top. Shook some garlic powder on top. I served it with leftover rice (fried) and my hubby scraped the bottom of the eggplant dish. Very nice and as an extra benefit -- it is fast as well! Read More

This is an excellent recipe. The only thing I did differently was to peel the eggplant.( My husband says the skin tastes bitter.)Fast easy & delicious. What more could I ask for? Thanks for sharing. Read More

don't use too much oil - the cheese makes it pretty greasy; don't cook for too long - hard to eat if too soft Read More
