Dominex Eggplant Review + Free Product Coupon Giveaway

dominex-products

Dominex Eggplants are found in the frozen food aisle and come breaded and pre-seasoned. You can choose from Eggplant Parm Bites, Eggplant Fries, Eggplant Burgers, Eggplant Vegetarian Meatballs, Egglant Cutlets. Once baked they have a crispy seasoned crust on the outside and tender eggplant on the inside.

I was given a few free product coupons to try some of their products so I picked the Eggplant Parm Bites and Eggplant Veggie Fries.

dominex-eggplants

I fried the eggplant fries in oil to get them nice and crispy and then decided to bake the eggplant parm bites in the oven. Both of these are really good dipped in marinara sauce.  Kyle absolutely loved the eggplant bites !

dominex-eggplant-cutlets

I also picked up some of the Eggplant cutlets which were perfect for making eggplant parmesan.  I love how easy of a meal this was.  Just place the cutlets in a casserole dish and top with pasta sauce and bake.  Or to get a crisper cutlet, fry it and then top with sauce.

You can find a store that sells Dominex Eggplants near you HERE
