This eggplant parm is a delicious comfort dish with much less fat than traditional fried versions. Serve this hot on it's own or make a day ahead and serve in sub rolls for a wonderful sandwich.
"So good! They didn't have parmesan breadcrumbs at the store so I made my own. We're big on seasoning so I added salt, pepper, seasoning salt, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and Italian seasoning to the breadcrumbs and the red sauce. I used a lot more cheese too."- Ange325

Preheat oven to 400.
Slice the eggplant (leave the skin on) into 1/3 inch thick discs.
Whisk the milk and eggs together.
Line two baking sheets with parchment or spray with cooking spray (do not use foil).
Dip each piece of eggplant into the egg mixture then coat well with breadcrumbs and place on baking sheet.
Bake eggplant until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
Spread 1/4 cup of pasta sauce all over the bottom of a 12x12 glass baking dish and layer single pieces of the baked eggplant until the bottom is covered.
Spread a thin coating of pasta sauce over the eggplant.
Sprinkle the layer with 1/2 cup of the mozzarella.
Continue to create layers until all of the eggplant has been used.
Sprinkle final layer with 1/2 cup of mozzarella.
Tent loosely and return to oven.
Bake at 400 for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 5-10 minutes until the shredded cheese on top is melted and slightly bubbly.

herbgrower 1 month agoLove cooking eggplant in oven. Much healthier and so easy not having to fry all the eggplant. Sometimes I have extra cooked eggplant and I freeze it. I just reheat and chop up for pasta topper! I also cut eggplant lengthwise when I make it- just easier!

Healthymommy 11 month agoAm I the only one who noticed there was NO Parmesan in this recipe? I made it again only I added 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese on top as well as garlic, basil and oregano to the sauce. It was much better after that!

rosenlevine 1 year agoUsually I modify recipes or use them as a jumping off point, but this recipe works perfectly as written. I did use whole wheat bread crumbs, which made it even more nutritious. Kind of time consuming but easy and really delicious.

BigDaddyThomas 1 year agoVery good! I really liked the baked eggplant spin. Much less oily. I did peal my eggplant & flour it before the egg wash & bread crumbs.
AuntGin 1 year agoFabulous and you would never guess its so much lower in fat than the classic recipe. This is my all time FAVORITE eggplant recipe! I use panko Parmesan breading adding extra italian seasoning!
