The first Eggplant Parmesan I ever had was at the Altoona Hotel in Altoona, PA. This recipe comes really close, especially when using DelGrosso's Spaghetti Sauce, which is made in Altoona's neighboring town of Tipton. I don't usually like meatless meals, however the eggplant is a filling meat substitute. If you want you can always brown up some italian sausage and add it to the spaghetti sauce.
Preheat oven to 350?.
Mix egg and milk together in bowl, blend.
Heat olive oil in medium frying pan.
Dip eggplant slices into egg/milk mixture. Dip eggplant into breadcrumbs. Place 4 slices at a time, into olive oil in frying pan.
Fry eggplant on each side, until each side is golden brown (you want them crispy, not mushy). Remove eggplant from skillet, and place on paper towels to drain excess oil.
Repeat dipping and frying proces with other 4 eggplant slices.
Place 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce into 9x13 casserole dish. Place eggplant into bottom of cassserole.
pour spaghetti sauce over top of eggplant.
Sprinkle mozzarella/parmesan cheese over top of spaghetti sauce.
Bake in 350? oven for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve over pasta if desired.
