I made this for my wife, who is a picky vegetarian and she really enjoyed it (as did I). I made a half order, so only one eggplant. I mashed it but didn't like the results I was getting so I threw it in the food processor for a couple seconds. I made 8 small patties, which was perfect for the two of us.
Instead of frying them, I broiled them on a low shelf for 15 mins, raised then up to the top shelf for 2, flipped them and moved them back down to a lower shelf for another 15 - 20, and then back up to the top for another 2. They came out with a crunchy exterior and a well cooked center, not mushy inside.
I felt that they were a touch salty, so I would back off the salt and check my seasoned breadcrumbs for salt content next time. I served them with a soy/rice wine/sesame sauce. Not the right choice and we ended up not using it. They were fine on their own. Next time I think I will try a tzadziki sauce.
