Breading is highly over-rated!!! For a fleeting second I thought about dipping the eggplant in some breadcrumbs, but then decided to make the recipe as-is...This was so good! I am very glad that hubby wouldn't touch the stuff...more for me!! I used ALOT of cheese and then got side-tract during the broiling, so the cheese came close to burning, but was still yummy!! This will be a regular for when hubby has dinner meetings!!
So good! I prefer the eggplant this way, instead of breaded and fried. The leftovers were delicious on a sub roll.
Very good and easy recipe! I through this together for an improptu dinner party and it was perfect. Served with a side of pasta, salad, and bread. Thank you!
This is so good! The second time we made it, we brushed the eggplant slices with olive oil/italian spices and put them on the panini grill press to soften them before baking. This took all chewy texture away. Thank you!
I agree with the other 9 reviewers--this is excellent. Try it as is--you won't miss the breading at all and it's very easy to make. Not to mention low calories. It tasted very bit as good as the version that I usually make fried. My 23 month old toddler loved it and he usually won't eat eggplant that I fry. A new favorite in our house....we're having it again this week!
Thanks for this recipe, it is soooo yummy! I have a really busy life here on my farm, and this "easy to do" Eggplant Parmesan has made my family extreemly happy that I can indeed still cook!
I think it must be 10 years since I last made eggplant parmesan, because it was such an ordeal (for a lazy cook such as myself). If I'd had any idea it could be this easy, well, let me tell you, this will become a regular item around here. I did salt the slices and let them sit in a colander for about half an hour, then rinsed them. But next time I won't. No one else mentions that and I want to see just how easy and good this can be. Thanks!
This was so easy and so good. It took about 5 minutes to put together. I used more mozzerella and less parmesan. My husband, who normally complains about having "weird" vegetables also liked this dish. It was delicious served over pasta with some fresh bread. I will make it again.
I loved this because it is essentially cheese, eggplant and sauce. I've never liked crumbed up and fried eggplant. I doubled the amount of cheese. My husband and one of my kids liked it. There is no hope for the rest of them. Thanks. I'm going to hold on to this one, too.
The eggplant Parmesan turned out great!!! I really enjoyed it and it tasted like what my mom used to make. The preparation was easy. I can prepare it every week. :-) I read that the smaller eggplants were less bitter. Those small one weren't at all bitter. I don't recall the large one being bitter. The smaller ones are harder to peel if you have poor had function. I going to try the large ones next. <br/><br/>I have learned from this that when I search for a recipe put the words simple or easy before what I'm searching and then I find easier recipe.<br/><br/>timoo7
