I was recently challenged to use Kraft Fresh Take in a meatless recipe. Â Not one to back down from a challenge I gladly accepted and immediately set to work making eggplant parmesan.
If you’re not familiar with Kraft Fresh Take it’s a cheese and breadcrumb mix that gives your recipe a crisp, tasty and cheesy dish with an all-in-one prep bag. It’s often used on chicken and fish, but I can see using it for a lot of different recipes. You can find it in stores in the shredded cheese section.
Next time, I think I’ll top my mac and cheese with the Kraft Fresh Take. It will be cheesy and crunchy on top, just the way I love my mac & cheese.
I love that eggplant parmesan only takes a few ingredients when I use the Kraft Fresh Take. A quick stop by Walmart and I can pick up everything I need.Â
The Kraft Fresh Take includes the breadcrumbs and the cheese. Just mix the two together, then dip your eggplant slice in egg, place it in the Fresh Take bag and give it a good shake. That’s all there is to it. Not much clean up required since you just toss the bag when you are done.
I’ve become slightly addicted to the Vine app on my iPhone. I made this quick vine video on putting together the eggplant parmesan.
