Broiled Eggplant Bologna

This is a simple dish -- very common food, but delicious. My friend Mrs. Nasi in Bologna, Italy served this for lunch one afternoon. I need only describe the dish for you as you will certainly have no trouble making it.

Cuisine: Italian
Type: Vegetables
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

  Salt - to taste
  Olive oil
  Bread crumbs - as needed
  Garlic cloves - crushed

Recipe Instructions

Slice the eggplant thin and sprinkle with a bit of salt. Do not peel. Drain the slices in a colander for 1/2 hour. Rinse with cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Pan-fry the slices slowly in a bit of olive oil until they are brown.

Arrange them on a baking dish and sprinkle bread crumbs that have been mixed with olive oil and fresh crushed garlic on top. Place under a broiler until the crumbs are browned and all is hot.

Serve immediately.
