we absolutly looved this recipie!!!!
but we did make some changes...
i did not use balsamic vinegar.
i also added some cheese, italian seasoning, garlic salt and pepper.
i also layered it twice in this order:
eggplant,onion,tomatoes,cheese,breadcrumbs,spices...repeat. i will be making this dish often!
I made this for dinner tonight and thought it was terrible. The individuals who favored this dish added different components. As is, this dish needs some work. I will not make this again.
Ok, so I really changed this recipe. I put bread crumbs and cheese on top over every level of the eggplant. I also used white wine in place of the vinegar. My husband thought it was "incredable".
This was excellent! I'm surprised the previous reviews have not been 5 stars. Definitely, an all-time favorite now! To reduce the fat, I baked the eggplant slices rather than frying them in oil. I also separated the half rings of onion when I layered them. I used homemade Italian-style breadcrumbs, too. I chose to serve it on the cool size of room temperature--perfect!
My husband and I took one bite and both spit it back out. It's just eggplant, tomato, and onion soaked in vinegar!
I did not like this at all, and neither did my husband. It has a very strong vinegar flavor. I love eggplant, but I couldn't even taste it. And for an 8" pan, I think that 1 cup of breadcrumbs is too much. There was a thick layer of the crumbs just sitting on top.
It needs a little something more... and would be much better without the skin.
This has become one of my favorite recipes. I added a little sauteed fresh garlic and bell pepper. I also put 4 slices of provolone cheese under the bread crumbs. Yummy!
