Simple Coated Eggplant in Tomato Sauce

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

I haven’t tried many eggplant recipes before, so that’s why I decided to make something new I haven’t made so far.
After all, the eggplants are soo good and it’s a shame to neglect them.:)
They go really well with cheese, such as Parmesan or Mozzarella, and are very tasty in tomato, garlic and parsley sauce.
Today’s recipe is the second one – Eggplants in tasty tomato sauce.
The eggplants are coated in eggs and breadcrumbs and then fried.
They’re crispy on the outside and soft and juicy from the inside.
This is an amazing summer dish suitable for starter, main or side.

Here’s what you need.
