    My tummy says thank you! I cut mine a little thinner (1cm to 1/2 inch thick) and ONLY greased the cookie sheet because eggplant is super absorbent. I also only lightly seasoned mine with sea salt on one side. After about 10 to 15 mins I flipped the rounds and they were lightly browned and delicious. - 11/27/11

    Just bought eggplant at the farmers market and didn't know what to do with it. This was very helpful. Like other users, I got mushy eggplant too. I think it is the type of eggplant we bought (purple skin). Still, it was yummy for a veggie I usually don't like. - 9/16/10
