Eggplant Patties

I don't know about you but we've got a bumper crop of eggplants! I have added them to everything! I found this recipe online but tweaked it a little. Very Good!

These tasty eggplant patties are wonderful as a side dish along with sliced tomatoes or a little fresh salsa. Feel free to use a Creole seasoning blend instead of the hot pepper sauce.


  • 2cups cooked eggplant, diced & cooked until tender
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • dash red pepper sauce
  • 1/2 grated onion
  • 1/2 cup minced herbs, your choice
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp or mild Cheddar cheese, shredded


Drain and measure 2 cups of the cooked eggplant into a bowl. Mix with remaining ingredients. Cover and chill thoroughly. Heat bacon drippings or olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat; drop mixture by patties and fry until nicely browned on both sides. Serve immediately as a side dish with sliced tomatoes or salsa.
Serves 6.
