After my "Deep Fried McRib (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=266219)" venture this year I was trying hard to think about what I would do next and didn't have any great ideas :crazy:. So when the wife was going to make eggplant parm for our friends we are visiting tonight I immediately knew there would be 2 versions we would be bringing :becky:

We got the eggplants this morning and don't know exactly the route I will take or how many McRibs I will buy for the finished product, but I will see where the day takes me. I could keep the McRib patties whole or maybe cut them into chunks sprinkled in the layers. Definitely going to every part of the sandwich. We'll find out.........:-D

Those sausage biscuits are only $1 each. You should get a few of those and a chocolate shake too. Maybe a Big Mac. You could repurpose the special sauce!

Make this like a chopped basket. Let’s see what you can do with all of it.

That's a good round 3 idea!

There is something about this McRib adventure that has me slowing down to look, just like a freeway accident.

Took a sample and the rest chilling in the fridge for assembly later. Added bbq rub in the breadcrumbs and some hot sauce in the egg wash. Got some great american processed cheese to use later and will maybe put some ricotta on there to class it up just a pinch.

Can't wait to see how this goes from here....

I’m anticipating a play on veal parmigiana and eggplant parmigiana layered like a lasagna.

Do I win a sample??

I have no idea what kind of insanity I'm looking at here. I do know what that fine Bulleit Bourbon is though. Make you straight up crazy. McRibs look excellent.

I really want a McRib. You’re so McRib wealthy that you take them for granted. We can’t get McRibs around here. God I really want a McRib.

Love eggplant...and this is interesting...LoL

I make a pretty decent Eggplant Parmesan (for a redneck). I slice & fry mine that way...a wee bit more Italian style though. There's always a few slices left that get munched on after the parm goes in the oven.

Do you every make something and just want it to be amazing, but then it doesn't live up to your expectations?? Like "man I was super into this had a great time, but the payoff just was a huge let down".........

Well this was not that at all!! :-D :clap2:. "The McRib Plant Parmesan" was everything I hoped for and people agreed :-D

Let's just start at the end and work our way back around. So this is the final result of the 2 pans we brought over to our friends. 4 adults and 3kids (or 3 adults and 4 kids depending how you count me :der:). McRib pan on the right.

This was the reason for the eggplant parm dinner my wife wanted to cook for her friend to see if that wives tale would help :clap2:. As of now it has not

Here's the rest of the building. Sauce on the bottom, then eggplant, McRib, little ricotta, white american cheese and repeat. Well worth $25 of McRibs (and yes I know you can buy the generic patties in the freezer section). Kid liked it a lot, not sure if that is a good or great thing :becky:

As always, TQ swings for the fences, and sends the ball into the parking lot !!!

Hopefully the Brethren's own Chef Mike will see this thread, and maybe, just maybe, we'll find the Tenacious McRibPlant Parmesan on menus shortly :pray:
