DIRECTIONS

  • Place flour on large plate.
  • In large bowl, whisk eggs and milk together.
  • Place breadcrumbs on another large plate.
  • Coat 1 eggplant slice with flour; shake off excess. Dip into egg mixture, then dredge through breadcrumbs. Place single-layer on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining eggplant slices, flour, egg mixture and breadcrumbs.
  • In heavy large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil. Working in batches, cook eggplant until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels; add more oil to skillet as necessary. (Can be made 6 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.).
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange half of eggplant slices in 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Spoon 1 1/2 cups salsa over. Sprinkle with ham and sausage, then 1 1/2 cups of each cheese. Cover with remaining eggplant slices, then remaining salsa and cheese.
  • Bake until cheese melts and casserole is heated through, about 45 minutes. Cool slightly.
