Cheesy Baked Eggplant Sticks

I am so happy we are still getting eggplant!  I have been trying different things with it this year.  These Cheesy Sticks are one of things I said is going to be made again.  Try them for yourself, they are simple to make and very few ingredients.   Make them with whatever you are putting on the grill this weekend.  You won't be disappointed.


Cheesy Baked Eggplant Sticks

1 medium eggplant
1/4 small white onion
1 clove of garlic
2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese

Peel and slice the eggplant lengthwise in 1/2" slices.  Lay them out on a piece of paper towel and sprinkle with salt.  Turn them over and sprinkle salt on the other side.  Let sit for 30 minutes.  While eggplant is sitting, place the onion and garlic in a food processor.  Process until they are finely ground or pulp.  Combine the pulp and coconut oil in a shallow dish.  Whisk to combine.  Pat the eggplant dry and cut lengthwise into sticks similar to steak fries.  Place the eggplant sticks in the coconut oil and pulp, toss to coat the eggplant.  Place the eggplant sticks on a cookie sheet.  If you have any of the oil and pulp mixture left, pour over top of the eggplant.  Place the cookie sheet on the bottom rack of a oven that has been preheated to 425 degrees.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven and turn the eggplant over.  Bake for another 5 minutes.  Remove from the oven and place the cheese on top of the eggplant sticks.  Return to the oven for another 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted and starting to brown.  Then you get to eat them!

Try a different cheese if you would like.  Also, you can adjust the amount of onion and garlic to suit yourself.  Most of all enjoy your weekend!
