Eggscellent

0 Flares 0 Flares ×
Hi everyone, Clark Kent here. After reading so many of my wife Parsley Sage’s excellent and tasty posts on this blog, you may have, understandably, come to the view that all I’m good for is eating and washing dishes.
Not so!
I am, in fact, quite an accomplished cook. However, there’s a problem. All of the stuff that I make is vegetable dishes. Since Parsley didn’t eat any vegetables before we were married, I didn’t get much chance to cook .
Then our friend Debbie came along.

She got Parsley to eat vegetables by ‘disguising’ them as something else. So now, there are many vegetables that Parsley will eat.

Luckily, one of them is this eggplant parmigiana:
Print this recipe

 

You will need:
One eggplant
1 1/2 cup bread crumbs
Two eggs
½ cup of milk
2 cups vegetable oil
One can of spaghetti sauce
Pasta of your choice
  •  Peel the skin from your eggplant with a carrot-peeler or knife until there is no more purple stuff left on it.
  • Once peeled, chop your eggplant into round disks about ¼ to ½ inch thick
  • Start cooking your pasta as per directions on the box.
  • Meanwhile, beat two eggs.  Add milk and mixx. Get a plate and pour a large amount of 4C (breading) onto it. Place it next to the egg bowl for optimal assembly line processing.
  • Heat oil at medium heat in large saucepan. Also start heating your pasta sauce.
  • Dip eggplant disks into egg-milk mixture. Coat in breadcrumbs. Repeat this process until all eggplant ‘disks’ are battered.
  • Fry the disks in the oil for about 3 – 5 minutes per side.
  • Remove and drain on a paper towel. Careful! They will be hot.
  • Take cooked pasta and put it on a plate. Put the newly cooked eggplant on top of the pasta and then cover all with the pasta sauce.
  • Grab knife and fork. Eat.
Uhhh…I shouldn’t have let her do the photos.

  2. Your posts always put a smile on my face! Love the funny photos, and the photo of the eggplant parmigiana face with the mustache. Maybe this would make kids eat their eggplant with a fun way of decorating it on their plate…Yumm!

  3. Lmao! I thought I was the only one that still made Mario references.
    And wow – the last time I let Handsome (still no super hero call tag) alone in the kitchen, he brought in a power drill to make mac and cheese! I wish he would make me something this nice.

  4. Haha I love this! Such a cute post!

  5. Good to know there are two talents at work here. Doing dishes would have been enough for me though. Looks like you two are having fun over there.

  18. Loved reading this cheeky post! I love eggplant in any form, and this one looks exceptionally tempting.

  19. LOL I couldn't stop laughing! You guys are so funny! <3 You know... my hubby is (was?) the same... he did not eat ANY vegetables before meeting me... now he does... but only the cooked ones (still no salads and ABSOLUTELY NO raw tomatoes)!!! I love parmigiana! Delicious! Well done CK! 🙂

  20. Hehehe! We hear so much about you, CK. Great to finally meet you! Lovely dish and really liking the 'graphic novel' feel of the photos in this post.

  21. What a fun post! The eggplant looks very tasty.

  22. Clark Kent, you are the Domestic God! You need your own cooking programme on TV…move over Bourdain!

  23. You guys are too funny and I love this recipe!

  24. Ah, so you're both funny people! A match made in heaven, then! But I am glad she's eating some veggies now, we couldn't be blogging friends if she wasn't. Yummy eggplant parm!

  25. Ooh, absolute yum. I totally didn't know that about Miss Parsley Sage!

  26. You guys are awesome. I can always count on you to make me smile. My dog does the same thing in the kitchen and thinks the same thoughts! AMAZING! ha.

  27. Lucky! My husband only cooks bean and cheese burritos. The eggplant looks fantastic!

  28. Dear Clark Kent – nice to meet you at last! Good thing you've got Parsley eating veggies – I would eat this eggplant too 🙂 cute post

  29. Great to see a post from you Clark Kent, fantabulous job. Glad parsley is getting her veggies in – even if they are FRIED and covered in cheese. that is my kinda veg.

  30. This is a delightful post, Clark Kent! Parsley mentions you so often, and it's great to see you in the kitchen “feeding” Parsley!! 🙂
    The eggplant looks so good, would be great to dip in some chilli sauce or sour cream dip! Yum!

  31. This looks really delicious and I wonder if the moustache is edible? :):)

  32. I love a man that can cook. In fact I made sure I married one, because at that time I couldn't cook. Zoom ahead in time and we both do the cooking and the cleaning up. It's nice to have a partner in the kitchen.

    So glad you made your appearance here today and it's nice to meet you. When your busy schedule permits, I hope you'll zoom back to the islands for more vegetable posts.

  33. eggplant is delicious. you and your wife are fantastic. long live the veggie!

  34. Hey! It's CK!!! Love eggplant parmigiana (though mine doesn't talk!) Love that Parsley Sage is eating veggies! And really love this post! You guys are just so cute! : )

  35. OMG this is WONDERFUL! Hiya Clark Kent! You are a SUPER MAN in the kitchen (oops…pay no attention to the previous statement!)

    You are a mild mannered man who has a way with veggies!

    What a fun post and I'm SO glad you finally cyber meet you! You have a real keeper in your gal!

    Awesome post and I'm headed to Foodbuzz to buzz this one!!

  36. Eggplant is everywhere this week! This look delish… and now I need to go buy another eggplant. 🙂

  37. Nice post. Very important for parsley to be eating greens

  38. Glad somebody got Parsley to eat her vegetables… we enjoy her too much to have her disappear from rickets or some other nutritional deficiency. The eggplant parm is of course a classic, very nice!

  39. Great post Clark!! I'm still in disbelief that Parsley eats vegetables now! Love the little thought bubbles too.

  40. HA! Thanks CK for your post – great dinner! I need your friend to come convince my husband and son to eat their veggies!

  41. Hahah I had so much fun reading this post and looking at the pictures! Parsley is just like my hubby. He didn’t eat any veggies at all. Now after years of training aka hiding veggies in his food he “loves” it. He doesn’t need any persuading eating veggies now.

    You guys have a great weekend!

  42. It's great meet you, CK! Eggplant parmesan happens to be one of my favorites. Yours looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  43. Nice to meet you, CK! Great looking eggplant and one of my favorites! And great tutorial. Since Parsley just told me how much she liked the Olive Cheese Bread I posted about, I'm surprised she didn't always eat everything! Good work Debbie, too! We all need to eat our veggies. (But I like meat, too.)

  44. Hey Clark, I was in the Loop yesterday and didn't see you on the set of the latest Superman movie. You must have flown home to prepare this delicious dish. I'll be keeping an eye out for you in Chicago in the coming weeks.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  45. Love the fun post 🙂 Very glad Mz Parsley is eating her vegetables. Eggplant parm looks great. I got some Eggplants at farmers market and I am making that tonight… but no frying for me since I am cutting calories. Not gonna be quite as tasty as yours but at least I can have it 🙂

  46. I think it's still you dressed up as Clark! The look on the dogs face is priceless..
    Well done…whoever cooked this sweet meal?

  47. This is too cute! I love eggplant parm! Nice job clark kent!

  48. Looks simple and delicious. Can't wait to try it!

  49. I would love hubby cook sometimes!! this look nice !! gloria

  50. The photo captions had me giggling from start to finish. You need to create and patent mini-mustache garnishes. It'll make you rich. Rich, I tell you!

  51. Now I see why you guys are together! Amazing post. Imagine that? Parsley Sage didn't eat her veggies? What a transformation and loved the disguises. Great photos, great food, what a team. xo

  52. Yeah for Debbie to expand Carsley's range of food likes. Your eggplant parm looks wonderfully toasty-even with the moustache in there. Yummy post!

  53. Nice change on who did the cooking, I will make the eggplant as its so affordable and we love this veg so much, in fact my hubby's fav.

  54. Funny, and a happy ending. Parsley Sage now eats vegetables. Interesting choice of name though, I would say little misleading or confusing if the name was selected before marriage:) Have a nice weekend.

  55. I just love the smell of these frying you know I have to go out and buy some now! The sizzle got me on here! YUM!

  56. I love this!!! Debbie, Lunch talking the egg plant parm face.. Awesome. This post def put a smile on my face 🙂

  57. I just hope he remembered to wash his hands! FUN! Mrs. Herb Garden

  58. Very cute blog post and nice job on the eggplant! Looks delish!
