Many people undeservedly consider eggplant bland and tasteless. Properly prepared, it transforms into a delicious dish that leaves everyone asking for the recipe.

Crispy eggplant rolls are an excellent idea for a tasty snack, a warm dinner, or an unusual lunch. Inside, they hide bacon and cheese, which melts and becomes wonderfully stretchy after baking. Eggplant skewers delight every time they appear on the table.


  • 1 aubergine,
  • 100g bacon in slices,
  • 100g gouda cheese in slices,
  • 1 egg,
  • wheat flour,
  • breadcrumbs,
  • olive oil,
  • salt to taste.


Step 1. Cut off the green tip of the aubergine and slice it into long strips. It's best to do this with a mandoline, a unique vegetable slicer. I place the aubergine on the grill and roast it. You can also use a grill pan or even a waffle maker.

Step 2. Place a piece of cheese and bacon on the grilled aubergine and roll it tightly into a roll. Coat successively in flour, beaten egg, and breadcrumbs, then skewer onto a stick. You can substitute breadcrumbs with panko.

Step 3. Drizzle with olive oil and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Place in an oven preheated to 190°C and bake for about 20 minutes. After this, transfer to a plate and serve warm when the cheese is mouthwateringly melted inside. Enjoy!
