Eggplant Fritters

This is my personal favorite for fresh eggplant from my garden.


  • 3 medium eggplants
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup whole-wheat breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup whole-wheat flour
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon each basil and oregano, chopped
  • ¼ cup Parmesan
  • EVOO


Preheat oven to 375. Cut eggplant in half lengthwise and place on baking sheet in oven. Bake until soft all the way through about 35-40 minutes. In a bowl scrape out the flesh of the eggplant and mash it. Add the rest of the ingredients besides EVOO and stir to combine. Heat 3 tbsp of EVOO in medium skillet over medium-high heat. When very hot spoon batter on to skillet into 6-8 patties. Fry until browned then flip. Brown the other side then drain on paper towels.
