Meat Patties and Eggplant Layers


This hearty dish is a real show stopper! Perfect for the eggplant lover, the eggplant subs in for a traditional burger bun. Feel free to use ground meat or ground turkey instead of the ground chicken breast to customize your meat patty. Serve with a fresh salad for the perfect meal.


Prepare the Eggplant Layers


Peel and slice eggplant into 1/4-inch slices. Sprinkle with salt and set aside for one hour.


Dip slices first in egg and then in bread crumbs. Fry in hot oil on both sides until golden brown.

Prepare the Shnitzel Mixture


Mix all ingredients well.

Prepare the Tomato Sauce


Brown flour in oil. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Simmer on low heat for five minutes.


Make a sandwich consisting of one slice eggplant, schnitzel, and eggplant. Place into cooking sauce and cook on low heat until meat is cooked through, approximately 30 minutes.
