2 ingredient eggplant parm

For a family of 5 on one income, healthy eating can get quite expensive. My local grocery store often has a rack of clearance produce that needs to be used or frozen right away. I’m telling you, it can be a real life saver. Today I ended up with 4 large eggplants for $1! The total cost for this 16 serving dish was $3.34- eggplant and shake and bake.

Eggplant parm is always a hit in my family. If I remove the skin, my kids assume it’s a chicken nugget and eat their veggies with no issue!

Tonight I needed a quick and easy recipe to fit into our schedule- and this worked out perfectly!


2 large eggplants

1 packet of Parmesan shake and bake


Clean and slice your eggplant.

Place the eggplant slices into water.

Transfer wet slices into shake and bake bag a few at a time.

Lightly shake bag, coating the eggplant.

Arrange on cookie sheet so all pieces lay flat.

Broil on high for 2-4 minutes until golden.

Flip and repeat on other side.

Continue baking at 350 until cooked thoroughly. (About 15 minutes.)

Serve as desired with sauce and cheese.

Easy peasy!

I bake my eggplant to avoid the oil and fat, but this recipe works well with oil frying and air frying!

I hope you enjoy! Let me know in the comments if you try this recipe, and how you like it!

With healthy hearts,
