    I really liked this recipe. However, I used italian seasoned breadcrumbsand ,and made them into thin round patties. I put them on top of spaghetti noodles with tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. Then I broiled it in separate personal serving sizes until it was golden brown. It made the perfect eggplant parm. I bet an eggplant parm sandwich would be delicious too. Thanks for the recipe! I love this site.

    Can these patties be frozen before you cook them?

    we LOVE these sandwiches (as we do EVERYTHING catherine conjures.
    but, two points:
    1. we’re vegetarians and try not to call vegetarian dishes things like “veggie meatballs” etc b/c we try not to look at our food as a substitute for something we’re being deprived of. that said, i do get the shorthand of a “veggie burger” but our little ones don’t really have hamburger in their repertoire so it’s not a selling point.

    2. with this particular recipe, when it comes to the “form the patties” portion, i literally have to just use a spoon and put dollops out as the mixture is like paste and if i try to form it in my hands, it becomes an eggplant glove. any suggestions?

      My daughter and I made these the other night unfortunately we could mot form them like Catherine did. I am wondering if Catherine has any suggestions in making them a little stiffer because we loved the flavor it would just be for fun to eat them the way Catherine was able to do.

    I made these burgers but added a can of drained chick peas to the mix for protein. I added cumin and mustard seed too. When I blended them they had a really soft consistency, but formed easily into patties. I browned them on both sides with a bit of oil in a pan and finished them off in the oven for about 10 minutes and they really firmed up well. They were delicious! Sort of like a falafel burger, but with eggplant! My husband called them baba-ga-mus burgers! The whole family LOVED them. I served them with some plain yogurt and cucumber dip. What kid dosen’t love to dip!

    Thanks! I was one of the ones who followed the recipe last time, and ended up with pancake batter consistency. None of them turned out :( So, I picked up another eggplant and I’m going to have a go at it again :) Thanks!!!

    Looks yummy! No probs watching, must be a connection issue, or a computer issue. Did miss child participation in video, though!

    BTW, can these be baked instead of fried?

    Internet access can be a real bummer. Hopefully it will clear up so you can see it straight through!

    This eggplant burger video was a diappointment as the video was choppy and stopping every couple of seconds. I ended up just copying the recipe, but my granddaughter was wanting to watch this as we made them.

      Elaine- I agree with Megan, I also just watched the video with no problems.

        It was really choppy for me as well. If you pause the video and come back to it after a few minutes, however, it won’t need to stream as you go, so you won’t have the choppiness problems anymore.

      Elaine- I just watched the video and there were no problems. Have you considered that it may have been a problem with the internet connection at your end?
