    Just made this tonight for dinner. My DH and I loved it.The only variation I made was omitting the mayo and using skim milk to dip them in before the breadcrumbs.Thanks for sharing.Will definatly be making this one again! - 12/23/09

  • I sprayed the cookie sheet with Pam, no foil, and these did not stick to the surface. I'll add a bit of garlic powder, a little less parmesan and Italian seasoning. We love eggplant, and this is part of my recipe book now. Thank you for sharing it! - 12/14/11

  • I've never been a fan of eggplant but tried this healthy new recipe and it's delicious! Next time I'd like to try plain yogurt instead of the mayo. - 7/5/11

  • I made this but must have done something wrong. Not wild about the mayo in it. I ended up taking it out of oven and putting it in a skillet. It tasted good just not like my old fried eggplant :) - 4/23/11

  • It was kinda bland for my liking but now I know to season it a bit more next time. I did like the crispiness of it and I didn't feel guilty after eating it like I would if I pan fried it. - 10/21/10

  • I thought this recipe was very good! I used fresh eggplant from our garden and I used salad dressing instead of mayo. - 9/7/10

  • I never had eggplant before. This recipe has made me an eggplant lover. I used eggbeaters instead of mayo and Shake'n Bake for the bread crumbs with a little parmesan. Oven fried until they were crispy, about 30 mins.

    Fabulous by themselves and great dipped in spaghetti sauce. - 6/27/10

  • I used skim milk instead of mayo and seasoned the bread crumbs with Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning mix. This was a great recipe! - 6/9/10

  • This was good, but I found the nutritional information to be misleading. It says it serves 4 under directions, which is great, but shame on me for not reading further and noticing at the bottom where it says 12 servings. I used light mayo, reentered it and got a slightly higher number for cals - 5/9/10

  • Made these last night and they're fabulous! I left out the cheese and kept them in the oven for an extra 10 minutes to get them really crispy. They tasted very light, unlike previous attempts using oil. Will definitely make again. - 12/7/09

  • I didn't like the mayo taste so much. I'll probably just spray it with Pam and dip it in the breadcrumbs. - 10/19/09

  • Thanks for the simple recipe to make eggplant more solid. I've done this a couple of time, and I like to marinate the eggplant slices first or season heavenly before coating with egg and bread crumbs. We like our foods FULL of flavor. - 10/8/09
