Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Eggplant Parmesan

After the visit to the Doctor a few weeks ago the wife has told me that we need one vegetarian meal a week, so I agreed and have started working out and then finishing it with a 30 min walk.

Decided on Eggplant Parmesan (saw a thread a few weeks ago). Started the day off at 8AM by making my marinara sauce, I like a long slow simmer for my sauce. After my walk I got home around 6:30 and started the egg and Grilled my egg plant at 400 direct to get a nice char on them. I assembled the eggplant and sauce in layers and with some Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese. Topped with a little mozzarella and baked on the egg at 350 indirect for 45MIN. Served with beefsteak tomato with balsamic vinegar and fresh basil.

All in all this was a great dish, next week for vegetarian will do a veggie stir fry.

    • 2 28OZ Cans CentoTomato Puree
    • 1 28OZ Can Cento Peeled Tomatos
    • 1 Small Yellow onion diced
    • 1 Shallot Diced
    • 6-10 Garlic Cloves
    • Handfull of Fresh Basil Chopped
    • Handfull of Fresh Oregano Chopped
    • Bay Leaf
    • Pinch of salt
    • pinch of sugar
    • 1/4 cup EVOO

    I like to saute up the onions, arlic and shallots at the begining with a little evoo and thn dump in the tomato sauce.

    I slow cooked this for about 9 Hours and let all the spices and plump tomatos cook down. You can add if it starts getting real thick, thats what I do through out the day.

    Thanks, Yep on the sauce I usally make a double batch and then vacuum seal up 5 or 6 individual ones and use them for pizza nights or heat the sauce and throw in some Itallian Sausage and have spaghetti nights.

    If you dont have a food saver the little rubber maid containers work as well.
