  • eggplant bread?

    I really like eggplant and was wondering if anyone had a bread recipe for eggplant? I really want something other than lettuce to carry my turkey and chicken for lunches and would like something like a wrap and eggplant is great tasting.

    So I'm thinking maybe just buying an eggplant, thinly slicing it with my mandolin and getting the moisture out (paper towels since I don't have a dehydrator...yet) and throwing in the oven. Any idea how long I would need to cook them? I might just guesstimate. I just really want something to throw turkey sandwich meat on other than salad everyday.

      Cooked eggplant is good, but not as bread. It gets soft and wet.

        I know you're looking for eggplant, but my favorite bun is a gutted out portabello mushroom cap cooked in olive oil or bacon grease

          once i get a dehydrator I will probably just dehydrate the eggplant and see how that works. Anyone know though how easy it is to control how hard the dehydrated eggplant will be? I don't mind it being like a cracker, but would prefer it a little softer.

            Someone told me about brining eggplant. Apparently, it will draw the moisture out of the eggplant, so when you cook it, it will get crispy. It may be what you're looking for.

            EDIT: In looking into this, it seems like brining will help the eggplant keep its shape. I'm unsure about the crispy part.

                  Btw, I just made this crust yesterday. My whole family liked it. My son thought it tasted like crust. I thought it still had an eggplant taste, but I like eggplant. It reminded me of eggplant parmesan. Very tasty. And I plan to make this again.

                    This is what I do for "eggplant sandwich rounds." They end up kinda bready.

                    Slice the eggplant into rounds about 1/2" thick. Lay them out on a towel and salt liberally on both sides. Let sit for a bit (15 min. at least) until the water comes out.

                    Preheat the oven to 425. While it's heating, pat the eggplant rounds dry with another towel. Press down on them with the towel to really get the water out. The eggplant should be limp at this point.

                    Brush with olive oil on both sides and place on a tray. Bake at 425 until they are brown on the bottom--peek with a spatula. Maybe about 20 min., but it depends on your oven. Flip and bake for another 15 min. or so. I'm not actually sure how long because I'm notorious for forgetting to set a timer. They should be dry and brown on both sides.

                    Let them cool in a single layer. If you stack them while they're hot, the steam will make them soggy.

                          yeah, I made this last week and it was awesome. Tasted like a wheat crust! Was a little soggy and couldn't pick it up though (like in the video). Shouldn't you drain the water out of the eggplant? She never mentions this in the video...
