How to get Michelle to eat anything?

July 13th, 2009

Answer: Bread it and cover it in sauce.

We’ve been going to the Farmer’s Market every week to pick up fresh goodies.  Zucchini, squash, and eggplant are always abundant.  I buy them and cook them for Steve and Sabrina but I’m not a fan.  I decided make them palatable.

Eggplant, Zucchini and Squash Parm

dsc099361 small eggplant

1 zucchini

1 yellow squash

2 eggs

1/3 cup milk

1/2 cup plain bread crumbs

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Favorite spaghetti sauce

Olive Oil

Slice the veggies rather thick.  Mix together the egg and milk in a bowl.  Mix the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese on a plate.

dsc09930Dip the veggie in the egg wash and then the bread crumb mixture.  Lather. Rinse. Repeat.  Allow them to dry for 20 minutes before cooking.

Make your sauce (or pour it out of a jar – what ever is your preference).  I used italian sausage in my sauce this night because I didn’t want to take any chances on actually tasting the eggplant or zucchini.

Heat a bit of olive oil in a saute pan on med-med high.  Cook the slices until golden and they have a little give so you know the veggies are done inside.  Put them on a plate and cover in sauce and sprinkle a little fresh Parmesan on top (the grated Kraft stuff is best for the breading though).  I have to say it was damn good.

**Side note: The plates apparently aren’t microwave safe for leftovers.

    One of the few Pioneer Woman recipes I like (and it’s not even one of hers but Pastor Ryan’s) is called Zucchini Cakes. my co-worker brings me 7 metric tons of it every summer, and even I can only eat so much zucchini bread. :-)


    Also, Zucchini Bacon Muffins

    This looks awesome! We would totally eat this. I have to print this one out. Thanks!

    Zucchini is not my favorite, either. My mom makes an awesome squash casserole that is my favorite way to eat squash (outside of fried). Totally unhealthy, of course!

    I make eggplant parm regularly, but I’ll probably be trying this to use up some of the squash in the garden!

    “Bread it and cover it with sauce”…LOL…amen! : D I am not an eggplant fan (even with sauce) but I do adore fried zucchini! It is so amazing! Yellow squash…YUM! And, I agree with using parm…I love the saltiness that it adds. So tasty!! Thanks for sharing the pics too. God bless.

    I don’t comment often, but I still read your blog. We met at the adoption picnic a year ago. Anyway, I wanted to let you know that we’ve been going to a local orchard to pick peaches and they are the best I’ve ever tasted. I’ll e-mail directions if you are intersted. It might be a little drive for you, but so worth it if you like peaches.

    How funny!! I love veggies, but this is still a favorite way to cook our also, nothing better than fried! Here’s another favorite recipe with zucchini guaranteed to not taste the veggies.
