Excellent Eggplant Parmesan
Great dish for vegetarians! You don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy this dish. I love eggplant anyway it's made. Got this recipe from the food channel.
Made this Eggplant Parmesan recipe a few times and loved it! We always save some for the next day, and it is still great tasting. Just warm it up!
- 1 large eggplant
- vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup flour
- 4 eggs, scrambled
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 2-3 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
- 1 cup Romano cheese, grated
- 48 ounces marinara sauce
Peel the eggplant, and cut it in half length-wise.
Cut into 1/4 inch slices.
Coat eggplant slices in flour, dip in egg, and then coat with bread crumbs.
Continue with all slices piling onto a plate.
Pour oil (vegetable oil) into a saute pan using enough to submerse eggplant slices.
Fry until lightly browned on each side. Remove to plate.
Pour enough Marinara sauce to cover bottom of 9x13 inch dish with a thin layer. ( you can make your own Marinara sauce with meat if you like, and are not vegetarian.)
Add eggplant in a single layer.
Pour additional Marinara sauce to cover top of eggplant. Add about 1 & 1/2 cups of mozzarella cheese, and sprinkle 1/2 cup of Romano cheese over.
Continue with the next layer of sauce, eggplant, sauce, and the remainder of the cheese.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 - 30 min.
