Cooking Eggplant Fans:

Step 1: Prepare the eggplant for further cooking.

We wash the eggplants under cold running water, dry with paper towels. Cut each eggplant lengthwise into two halves ("tails" can not be cut). Cut each half lengthwise so that it turns out a fan, while you do not need to cut it to the end so that the slices remain undivided on the stalk. In the sections of eggplant sprinkle with salt, transfer to a deep bowl and leave for 20-30 minutes in order to leave the extra bitterness. After the time has passed, we wash the eggplants from table salt and dry them on a kitchen towel.

Step 2: Prepare the vegetables.

Wash bell peppers under cold water and dry on a towel. Bell pepper cut in half, remove the core and seeds, cut the "tail" and cut the vegetable into long strips. Wash the tomato, dry and cut into rings or half rings, depending on the size of the fruit.

Step 3: Prepare the bacon and onions.

Cut the bacon into slices, then cut into long strips. Peel onions, rinse under cold water and cut in half rings.

Step 4: Prepare the cheese, garlic and herbs.

Cheese is cut into small slices. Peel the garlic, rinse it under water and chop it with a knife, or squeeze it with a garlic. Wash greens, dry on a towel, cut branches and finely chop on a cutting board.

Step 5: Stuffing Eggplant

We begin each slice of eggplant with chopped vegetables: tomato, bacon, cheese and bell pepper. Preheat the oven up to 200 degrees. We grease a baking sheet or a baking dish with sunflower oil and expose the stuffed eggplant fans not very tight to each other. Top with chopped onions, chopped garlic, herbs.

Step 6: Bake the stuffed eggplant.

Sprinkle all stuffed eggplant fans with sunflower oil, salt, add black ground pepper. We put in the oven, preheated to a temperature of 180 degrees, and bake products within 30 minutes.

Step 7: Serve the eggplant fans.

We take out the finished eggplant fans from the oven, put it on a serving dish, spreading the fan, and decorate with green basil or parsley. Let the dish cool slightly and try a wonderful fan of eggplant. Good appetite!
