Tried 'n' True: Sister's recipe offers way to use eggplant

For a long time I didn’t know much about eggplant. All I knew was to fry it like I did zucchini. My sister, Pam, gave me this recipe. It takes one large eggplant. I’ve had this about 30 years. I think she got it from her mother-in-law at the time. I do know my boys used to like eggplant.


• Peel and cook one large eggplant, boil until tender.

• Drain.

• Mix together

1 teaspoon celery salt

1⁄2 onion

1 egg, beaten

1 tablespoon butter

1⁄2 cup bread crumbs

1 tablespoon parsley

Salt and pepper to taste

• Mix together.

• Mash eggplant and add rest of the ingredients.

• Put oil into skillet.

• Put small amount eggplant into pan and fry until golden brown on both sides.

• Drain on paper towel.
