Aubergine mini-cutlets with aromatic herbs

Mini aubergine cutlet with aromatic herbs

The mini-cutlets of eggplant with aromatic herbs are a delicious finger food and perfect with a sparkling aperitif.

The mini-cutlets of eggplant with aromatic herbs are a vegetarian reinterpretation of chicken cutlets or similar . To ensure that they can be enjoyed as finger food (i.e. food to eat with your hands, perhaps standing up) you need to cut the aubergine into slices that are not too large, or cut the classic round fettona in half.

The breading is enriched with chopped aromatic herbs which gives the aubergine greater freshness. The only precaution to have, before preparing these mini-cutlets , is to put the aubergines in a colander, sprinkled with coarse salt, for a couple of hours, so that they lose their bitter liquid.

  4. In a bowl, beat the eggs and add the chopped herbs.

  6. Heat plenty of sunflower or extra virgin olive oil and fry the aubergines, without overloading, otherwise the oil temperature will drop too much.
