Eggplant Parm is one of my all-time favorite dishes. It's fast, easy, and (sort of?) healthy. I've gotten my process down to a science.I'm going to break it down in 3 steps. All measurements are guestimates; serving size is 2-4 people.
You can buy sauce from the store, but making it from scratch is easy and can be tweaked to match your taste.Ingredients:
Directions:Mix all of the above ingredients in a medium saucepan with a spoon, and heat gently for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat while you prepare the rest of the meal.
Directions:Slice the eggplant into 1-inch slices, so you're left with 5-7 good sized discs, depending on the size of your eggplant.Next prepare three shallow bowls. Fill the first bowl with flour, the second with 2 eggs, the third with breadcrumbs. You want to put enough in the bowl so it can easily cover your eggplant slices.Rub the eggplant slice in each bowl, making sure to cover evenly and thoroughly. Refill as necessary.
Finally, lightly fry the breaded slices in a tablespoon or two of olive oil.
Directions:Preheat oven to 350º. Line up the eggplant slices on a cookie sheet, leaving a couple of inches between each slice. Top with mozzarella and a healthy dollop of sauce.
4. BakeBake for 15–20 minutes, until cheese is good and melted.
Sprinkle each slice with a hearty pinch of Parmesan cheese, and enjoy!
