Eggplant Parmesan


  • 2 eggplants, peeled, sliced, and salted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated, divided
  • 3 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 2 cups mozzarella
  • 2 tsp dried basil

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400.  Grease 2 sheet pans. In a bowl, beat eggs.  In another bowl, mix bread crumbs and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese. Dip eggplant slices in egg and then in bread crumb mixture to coat.  Place on sheet pan.  Once all slices have been dredged, bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, flip slices and switch pans on shelves to bake evenly.  Bake for 5 more minutes.
  2. Reduce oven temp to 350. In a 9 x 13 pan, pour 1 cup of spaghetti sauce in pan.  Place eggplant slices on bottom to cover.
  3. Pour another cup of spaghetti sauce over slices.  Sprinkle 1 cup mozzarella and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese over sauce.
  4. Place another layer of slices over cheese and repeat with sauce and cheese. Sprinkle basil over the cheese.
  5. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes until cheese is melted and browning. Enjoy
