So I was not very fond of eggplant. It looked funny. Felt funny. Smelled funny. Was a disappointing shade of dirty white that turned brown and old-looking fast once peeled. It doesn't really have a redeeming quality in and of itself.
However, I am getting two to three eggplants per week and I need to do something with them! So I went in search of some recipes. I stumbled across one on www.allrecipes.com with the rather presumptuous name of Eggplant Croquettes. I just called them "Eggplant Patties" in my head as I was making them as I did not think eggplant deserved such a dignified name.
I followed the recipe with the exception of adding cumin and baking the patties rather than frying them. (10 minutes on each side at 350 F)
oh. my. goodness.
Croquettes they are! These things are delicious! I was lazy and did not take pictures (thinking it wouldn't be anything to write
As this is the single domestic - I did not cook up the whole batch but froze a few of them to enjoy at a later date.
I think I found a new favorite meal.
