Recipe For Shrimp-Stuffed Eggplant Rolls

Ingredients

3 small eggplants
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon minced onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 egg
2 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons garlic flavored olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
15 peeled and deveined jumbo shrimp
3/4 pound chopped raw shrimp
1 pinch garlic powder
1 pinch onion powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Directions

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

Peel 2 of the eggplants and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Dice the remaining eggplant and any scraps; soak the diced eggplant in lightly-salted, cold water. Sprinkle the eggplant slices with salt and set aside as you prepare the remaining ingredients.

Pour 3/4 cup of seasoned breadcrumbs into a bowl; set aside. Stir together the flour, 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic, 1/2 teaspoon minced onion, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, and 1/2 teaspoon basil in a bowl; set aside. Beat the egg with 2 tablespoons of water in a separate bowl. Rinse the salt off of the eggplant slices and wipe off excess water. Coat the eggplant slices in the flour mixture, dip into the egg, and press into the bread crumbs. Place the eggplant slices onto the prepared baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until the eggplant slices are golden brown and tender, about 10 minutes. Turn once as they cook to brown both sides; set aside and allow to cool until you can easily handle.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in 1 chopped onion and 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic; cook and stir until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minu
