Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Eggplant Parmesan

Wait a minute! There is NO parmesan in this recipe! I guess I should rename it Eggplant Mozzarella. And I was so excited to be making this that I almost forgot to take pictures. This recipe is so easy......but looks like it took you forever to make. You could really impress people with your awesome cooking skills with this. Go ahead....I won't tell!

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 4 PointsPlus™

1 large eggplant, peeled & sliced
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
1 cup fat-free mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 tsp dried basil

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Spray cookie sheet; set aside.

Dip eggplant slices in egg substitute and then bread crumbs. Place on cookie sheet. Cook for 5 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile, in a 13x9” baking dish, pour just enough marinara sauce to cover the bottom. Place the eggplant slices on this and pour more marinara sauce over the eggplant slices. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Bake @30 minutes covered; remove cover and bake until cheese gets a little golden brown.
My plate with whole wheat pasta. I did go back for another piece of the eggplant!

MY SPIN: This is one of those recipes where the PointsPlus™ value is approximate......depends on how much of the sauce/cheese you get on your plate!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life(time)!
