Blessing over Breaded eggplant

Breaded eggplant:

Breaded eggplant is typically made through coating a slice of eggplant with bread crumbs and then frying or baking. Its blessing follows the same law, as breaded Shnitzel which is under dispute amongst Poskim. Practically, the custom is to recite Shehakol over Schnitzel, and the same applies to breaded eggplant.[1] If however, there is a large amount of crumbs on the eggplant which forms a thick layer over it and is intended to be eaten also for its own sake, then a blessing of Mezonos is recited.[2]

[2] See Piskeiy Teshuvos ibid footnote 57 that one is to remove some of the coating and say Mezonos, and then remove a piece of chicken from the coating and say Shehakol.
