Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant parmesan is just one of those deliciously comforting foods that I enjoy making from time to time. It's very similar to lasagna in that it has layers of cheesy goodness, but the crispy, flavorful breading on eggplant slices makes this a recipe all it's own.

Ingredients
  

  • 4 small eggplant or 2 large, cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs
  • 16 oz mozzarella sliced or shredded
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 24 oz pasta sauce
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Next, setup your breading station by putting the flour, eggs, & breadcrumbs into SEPARATE shallow bowls.
  • Now dip each eggplant slice into the flour, then the eggs, then the breadcrumbs and place onto a lightly greased baking pan. Continue until all the slices are done.
  • Bake the eggplant slices for 20 minutes. Remove from oven when golden brown & set to side.
  • For layering, start with the eggplant slices, then pour half of the pasta sauce over them & top with half of the parmesan and half of the mozzarella. Repeat.
  • Now put your eggplant parmesan into the oven for 15 minutes, or until the cheese gets nice and gooey.

Notes

Serve alone or with some garlic bread!
