    Leilani's Note:

    This recipe is an adaptation of a recipe I saw on Throw Down, with Bobby Flay. This recipe is from Bobby Flay's challenger. I found the recipe on the food network website. The original recipe called for two eggplants, but I found that was too much. It also used 28 oz of Marinara sauce, but making it in a 9x13" dish, that was too little. The chef's recipe also said to use sliced, dry mozzarella, but I preferred grated. The original recipe didn't specify a pan size, so I made it in a 9x13" dish. You could, however, scale down the recipe and cook it in an 8x8 or 9x9" dish.

      Wow! Taste extraordinaire! The calorie chart is messed up, but the taste is really great. This came out kinda like a lasagna. Together in 10 minutes, Baking time was perfect. I also baked a non-breaded, non-breadcrumbs, and non-fried other half and it was great. My store did not have Romano cheese so I used Colby-Jack instead. Definitely worth 5 Stars.

      I didn't quite need four eggs, even though my eggplant was pretty large. I just used one egg and thinned it out with about 1/3 cup milk - and even then I had some left over. I also like that this recipe includes a step to coat the eggplant slices in flour before dipping it into the egg and breadcrumbs - it makes it more crispy (and I think perhaps the coating adheres better too?). Great taste good clear instructions = 5*.
