Eggplant Slider "Buns"

This is more of an idea than a recipe.  I'm always looking for new ways to enjoy my burgers without loading up on the breaded bun.  I usually make a lettuce wrap, but I saw these cute, little eggplants at the store and instantly knew I wanted to make slider "buns".

Eggplant Slider "Buns"
Serves 2
  • 1 small eggplant; sliced 1/2" thick
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with foil
  2. Arrange the eggplant slices on the baking sheet and spray both sides with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper
  3. Roast for 9 minutes
  4. After 9 minutes, flip each eggplant piece over
  5. Return to the oven to roast for another 9 minutes or until cooked and crispy
  6. Transfer to a plate and use as the "buns" to your favorite slider recipe
