This is adapted from what my friend’s son’s speech therapist made at his birthday party. She told me what was in it, but I sort of…ummm…forgot, so I decided to wing it. My kids are PIIIIIICKY eaters, especially the big one…and he thought they were great!
2 decent sized eggplants
1 cup bread crumbs (you might need more depending on how “wet” the mixture seems)
1/2 cup of parmesean cheese
salt & pepper to taste
cheese (mozzarella or provolone work)
tomato sauce of your choice (mine was meijer organic tomato & basil)
Heat a couple tbsp of olive oil in the skillet with some garlic (i like garlic, so i had a lot). Peel and chop the eggplant and sautee in the skillet with a little salt and pepper. Then toss in the food processor and process until it is coarsely chopped. Mix in the egg, grated parmesean, and bread crumbs and form into patties. I then put them back in the same skillet and cooked them like you would any “normal” burger. I put them on slider buns and topped with cheese and a little tomato sauce. It made 7 slider size burgers. I had it with tomato & cucumber salad, it would have also been great with a pasta salad.
