The results were great...the best part being the tangy lime juice in contrast to the buttery cracker crumbs. I did need to double-dredge my eggplant to get the cracker crumbs to stick well. I dipped in egg/lime, then flour, then again in egg lime then pounded down in bowl of crumbs to "encourage" a good coating. Just a dab of sauce made these scrumptious morsels. I can think of many uses for these tasty rounds...pita stuffings and salad toppings (in place of chicen in chicken ceasar salad for instance). Very nice Cindy.

This was really good, be sure and not skimp on the breading, though!

I didn't have the buttery crackers so I substituted Ritz Crackers and is was also very good.

Simple, delicious recipe. Did not have onion powder, so I diced up some red onion real fine; did not have garlic powder, so I minced a garlic clove. Used whole grain Ritz crackers. Kept the rest of the recipe as is and it turned out great.

This was great! And the egg plant makes it pass as healthy too;). Thanks- I'll be making this one again!

We loved these! Needed a little extra salt or seasoning but the sauce was a really nice compliment to the crackery coating. We will make these again soon! Might add some mushroom to top it off! Thanks.

Thank you for the Recipe Cindy! This recipe makes incredible eggplant sandwiches on garlic bread as well. Ritz crackers work fine. My on 2 cents on this recipe is the cooking time seemed a bit short for me. Perhaps I'm a thick slicer all in all quick easy DELISH eggplant meal.
