Coating and Breading Technique
A simple kids cooking lesson is to learn the coating and breading
technique also known as dredging.
We will show you several recipes you can use to practice this
method. This is the same mrthod you would make chicken fingers,
chicken nuggets or breaded pork chops.
First we will use the coating and breading technique on eggplant
slices. Zucchini also works well for this recipe.
We are making Eggplant Parmesan here and my son is coating sliced
eggplant first in flour turning both sides, then in beaten egg or
milk, then in breadcrumbs. Add to a hot skillet with a small
amount of oil in it. Cook both sides until brown and crispy.
To make Eggplant Parmesan, add fried eggplant into
casserole dish. Top with a small amount of spaghetti sauce and
sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes until
cheese is melted.
