    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If anyone is searching for an absolute fantastic eggplant recipe, then this is one you will have to try! To save time combine the bread crumb mixture, and fry the onion and garlic ahead of time or even a day ahead. I would suggest to double this recipe, otherwise you might tend to eat the whole casserole yourself LOL... it is that good!
