ohhh how many does this serve? Is this meant to be an appetizer or main dish? either way, looks amazing !
@samrusso716 I would serve this as a side dish, that way it serves about 3-4 people. but knowing me, i could probably eat more than one serving haha i love eggplant so much
@ameliasantos10 @caricakes SOO TRUEE lol, i would kill this entire plate.. teehee
@samrusso716 you cannot trust me with a plate of 'side dish' because before the main dish arrives they might be gone lol
