  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp dried parsley
  • 2 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Place eggplant in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on medium-high 3 minutes. Turn eggplant over and microwave another 2 minutes. The eggplant should be tender, cook another 2 minutes if the eggplants are not tender. Drain any liquid from the eggplants and mash.
  2. Combine cheese, bread crumbs, eggs, parsley, onion, garlic and salt with the mashed eggplant in a medium bowl.
  3. Using your hands, mold the eggplant mixture into patties.
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet. Drop eggplant patties one at a time into skillet.
  5. Fry each side of the patties until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes on each side.
