Eggplant Parmesan Sticks

(Sorry the picture is so dark.  We ate dinner late.)

I had bought an eggplant with the intention of making a stuffed eggplant for dinner one of these nights.  That never ended up working out, so in an effort to not waste the eggplant, I found this recipe on Weelicious.  When I saw it, I thought it would be a healthy alternative to a heavy Eggplant Parmesan dish with all the sauce and melted cheese.  I made these with a side of pasta, sauce, and garlic bread made out of a rosemary roll I picked up at the store.  These would be a fun appetizer to serve at a party, as well.

1 Medium Eggplant, peeled
1/3 cup Flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
2 Eggs, whisked
Cooking Spray

Cut the eggplant into 1 inch wide by 2 inch long sticks (one medium eggplant makes about 40 sticks).  Make an assembly line of 3 bowls.  In the first bowl, place the flour and salt.  In the second bowl, place the beaten egg.  In the third bowl, place the bread crumbs and cheese.  Dip the eggplant sticks in the flour mixture, followed by the egg mixture, and finally the bread crumb mixture.  Place the sticks on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake at 400 degrees for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden on the outside and soft on the inside.
