An easy recipe for an eggplant dish, each piece looks like a piece of lasagna with several layers of eggplant.
"The kids weren't sure about this one but one bite and they were sold. This was delicious. You can taste everything except eggplant. "
Cut top off eggplant, peel/slice lengthwise about 1/4” wide
layout the eggplant and salt on both sides (minimum 1 hour)
Set up breading station, place flour in 1 bowl, combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in another, beaten eggs, milk, salt and pepper (to taste) in third.
Place oil in fryer and set temp to 350 degrees (just past med heat on stovetop)
Rinse eggplant slices and pat dry
Begin breading, placing slices in flour, then eggwash, then breadcrumb mixture (this process can be done all at once or on the go while frying breaded pieces)
Deep fry breaded eggplant until golden brown on both sides, as eggplant comes out of fryer, lay in square casserole that has been coated with sauce on the bottom. Once in casserole, cover in sauce (or dip in bowl of sauce 1st) then sprinkle Parmesan cheese and cover in mozzarella.
Repeat until all eggplant is gone, using the bricklaying method, placing first level up and down, and the next level side to side etc. Bake in 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until top level of cheese is golden and bubbling.
Shelltine 11m agoVery good recipe. I chose to cut the eggplant crosswise into circles and layer them that way. I used a deep fryer which took a little longer to make because I only fried 2-3 slices at a time. It was delicious. Even better the next day.

Umama 5y agore sprinkle Parmesan cheese, golly, I used it in the breadcrumbs as it stated above! grrr. Also re the breadcrumbs, I have at least 3 cups of breadcrumb/parmesan mixture left. I would have preferred a smaller recipe for a huge eggplant than have to throw so much expensive parmesan out!

jgmargo 7y agoThis works best when you get 9 slices, using 3 for each layer but if you get less, just layer the eggplant until you run out. I use my own sauce but your favorite jar sauce will work fine. [I posted this recipe.]
