This is a new spin on Eggplant Parmesan. So delicious and easy to make.



  1. slice each eggplant in thin strips. Align parchment paper on a large baking sheet. spread eggplant all over, drizzle with some oil, season it with salt and pepper bake at 400 for about 10-15 min just until eggplant gets soft and slightly begins to brown.
  2. make a ricotta filling. Mix ricotta with mozzarella, Parmesan, pressed garlic, chopped parsley, one egg. Season it lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. spread ricotta filling on to each eggplant strip and roll it in a tube.
  4. Beat three eggs with a table spoon of creole seasoning in a bowl and set aside. Into another bowl add Italian bread crumbs. Heat oil for frying, than reduce the heat to medium low.
  5. Breading step: Dip each eggplant roll into eggs than roll it in bread crumbs. Fry on each side till golden brown. Place onto paper towel to soak up any oil.
  6. Disregard all the frying oil. In a cast iron skillet or oven proof skillet, melt some butter. Saute ground meat with chopped onions.
  7. season meat with salt, pepper and all the remaining of the seasonings listed. Saute till any liquid from the meat is evaporated and meat begins to brown. Add pasta sauce and a cup of water. Also taste for salt, if needed add more.
  8. Assemble fried eggplant all over the meat sauce. Top with fresh mozzarella balls and grated Parmesan. place in the oven to boil for couple mins. ( stand there and watch it down walk away. With high heat its easy to burn it) Broil just until the cheese is melted.
  9. Top with fresh herbs such as basil and parsley. For hardier dinner can be served with side of spaghetti or crostini.

AboutLily’s Cooking & Home

My story, I met the love of my life when I was 16 and two years later we were married. When we first got married I was not much of a cook, I would buy so many cook books and try recipes over and over again until it would turn out. I never gave up and my husband can tell you I had my share of bad cooking. The more I practiced the better I got. Now we are going on 10 years of happily married. I love to cook and create my own recipe also became a baker, I have also taken interest in doing home design and decor. In my blog I would love to share with you the recipes I create, recipes I find and love to share also tips for home decor and ideas.
