"A Good Thing," thanks for posting was looking for another eggplant recipe but not heavy using oil or in a casserole. I am watching my salt so did not add any, used the "dry" Parmesan cheese and the mayonnaise with olive oil. I think some of my eggplant pieces were too big so had to crush a few crackers (no salt on top) to finish the few I had. Did everything else and when all baked I returned all the pieces back to oven to crisp up.

Mine didn't get as crispy as I would have liked, but I may have skimped too much on the mayo (my eggplant was really small, so I wasn't sure about amounts). The flavor was nice, though.

I did this with light mayo, but wisked it with some water, as I thought it was too think otherwise. Wait a few minutes and the mayo will thicken up. It is a fast, easy and low calorie way to oven "fry" anything!
