I'm not sure if the food column I got this from is syndicated... If so, I'm
sure some of you have seen this by now. But I'll post it anyway! I just made
these tonight and they were SO GOOD and SO EASY I couldn't believe it! The
original recipe called for an egg, which I left out. I'll post it exactly the
way I cooked it:
1 eggplant, peeled and cut into pieces
8 fat-free saltines, crumbled fine
1 big tablespoon grated (or very finely chopped) onion
3 tablespoons unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Boil eggplant in salted water until tender. (I know we just had a back and
forth about whether or not to salt eggplant, but I like it salted!) While
it's cooking, combine all other stuff (except cooking spray) in a big bowl.
Mash eggplant well (I used a food processor) and mix with other stuff. Make
small patties and cook on heated, sprayed non-stick pan. Turn once; cook
until golden brown on both sides. THAT'S IT!!! They were delicious. Enjoy!
