Directions

  1. Peel eggplant and cut paper thin slices "lengthwise".
  2. To beaten eggs add salt and pepper to your taste.
  3. Pour enough olive oil in frying pan and heat. Add more as needed.
  4. Lightly dip eggplant pieces into flour. Shake off excess.
  5. Dip into egg, pepper and salt mixture. Shake off extra liquid.
  6. Fry on both sides till lightly brown. Drain on paper towels to remove excess oil. Repeat till all pieces of eggplant are fried.
  7. Spray a medium baking pan with baking and cooking spray. Put enough of the tomato sauce to coat pan. Next layer eggplant slices, a little bit of both cheeses and a little more tomato sauce. Repeat layers ending with a topping of both cheeses.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour or till golden brown and bubbling.
  9. Let cool for 15 minutes before slicing into squares. Mmm good.
