Roasted eggplant fan

baked eggplant with tomato and cheese

I made this recipe this fall with different type of cheese, each time. Could go very good without the cheese for the vegans or you can add some bacon if you like meat very much. I loved it with salty cheese and no bacon, and as you can see, the presentation makes you eat everything.


  • 1 big eggplant or 2 small eggplants
  • 2-3 tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 200 g cheese  (cheddar or salty cheese)
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil


Cut the tomatoes, cheese and onion in thin slices. Clean the eggplant and cut it in two. Each half cut it in thin slices. Keep the  stem so all the slices will stay together. Put some salt on it and leave it to get soft a little bit.

Stuff eggplant slices with tomato, cheese and onion. Press the eggplant slightly with the palm of your hand to form a fan. At the end add some pepper on top.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Bake the eggplant for 50 minutes or till the eggplant is done.

Serve it with a light sauce made with yogurt and garlic or any sauce you like. Enjoy!

  1. Yumm I’ll have to try this one. I really botched egg plant parm one time. Now, the person I fixed it for is convinced they don’t like eggplant. I’ll try this one and let you know if I’ve converted them 😉 lol thanks for the like 😉

  2. Your Roasted Eggplant Fan looks absolutely divine! Amazing Idea.. Gonna try this soon…!!! Hope mine turns out to be as good as yours..!!!

  3. I love the way this looks! I’m a big fan of eggplants (pun intended) but my family doesn’t like them much…but maybe I will make this to eat all by myself sometime. 🙂

  4. I have never seen anything like this. So pretty. I have NOT had a good history with eggplant and can’t ever seem to cook it correctly but with this recipe I have more faith. Thanks for the inspiration!
