Your thoughts…

  1. Margot, when I lived at home, “fried” was the only way my mom ever served eggplant. It was good, but I’d love to try your baked recipe; it not only looks wonderful, it’s a heck of a lot healthier, I’m sure. Thank you!

  2. I love fried eggplant but it soaks up too much oil so I stop eating it at all… this version is definitely low in calories, so I can enjoy eggplants again! :D

  3. Beautiful grill lines!
