Eggplant "Parmesan" & Exersize

With my new cooking regiment it is hard to find time to fit in the gym. The first week I made it 4 times, but last week I only made it once! Between Holiday parties and the service club I'm in, as well as a full time job; there are a million excuses to not fit it in. This week it needs to happen. Last week I indulged in some holiday drinks, and while I kept my food on track (for the most part) without exersize, those drinks had no where to go other than my belly! So this week I need to get on track. I have to cook dinner and go present shoping for the families the club adopted, but even if its half an hour, I need to get in a workout. Thats enough time to run a mile and a half and do 50- sit ups, pushups and thrusters!
Tonight I am making eggplant! Hope we all like it, since its a creation of my own.
Eggplant "Parmesan"
1 Eggplant
1 Egg beaten (or egg whites)
3/4 Cup Almond Meal
1lb Italian Turkey Sausage
1 Jar Marinera Sauce
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
6 Mushrooms
1 bunch of fresh Basil
Directions:  Pre-heat over to 350 degrees. Silce Eggplant into 1/2 in rounds. Place them on a paper towel and sprinkle with salt. Let them stand for at least 15 minutes. Then dip them in the egg, then the almond meal. Place coated eggplant on a foil lined, sprayed (or oiled) cookie sheet. Bake 20 minutes, flip the eggplant and cook another 15-20 minutes. Both sides should be browned. While the eggplan cookes, form 8 small patties from the Italian sauge and cook in a frying pan. Remove cooked meat and saute sliced mushrooms and diced bellpepper.
Assemble 1 egg plant slice, 1 suasage patty, pour on marinera sauce, sprinkle with sauted veggies and garnish with fresh Basil!
Server with a side salad and it makes a great meal!!! I would serve this to guest for sure. It turned out great! The fresh basil really makes it, so I recommend spending the few extra dollars or growing your own! Also, by boyfriend thinkgs these eggplant rounds make great bun Replacements!
