Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant Parmesan created by LizDaCook

This uses the same sauce as my Beef Parmesan, but uses eggplant in order to create a meatless dish. This is now my hubbys favorite dish, and I am glad because I have to say I like it alot too!

  • Dip eggplant into beaten egg, then into a mixture of bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.
  • Brown in oil on both sides and transfer onto plate with paper towels to absorb excess oil.

  • Cook for 5 minutes.
  • Pour a third of the sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
  • Put a layer of eggplant over the sauce, and put on 1/3 the cheese, more parmesan if wanted, 1/3 more sauce, and then repeat, making sure you end with sauce.

    10/20/11 UPDATE: Suggestion: fry ground meat (venison, beef, turkey) with the onion and you'll have a wonderful MAIN COURSE one-dish meal!!! Oh, yummmm!!! Excellent for taking to pot-lucks,too. ........ Sept 17, 2007 REVIEW: This was BEYOND five-stars...I'd give it 10 if I could!!! Everyone at supper gave it a thumbs-up, even my onion-hating son!!! The picture I took doesn't do justice to the dish--but wow, oh, wow, the flavor was out-a-this world delicious. And get this--this was FIRST time EVER eating eggplant. It was FUN to fry 'em up and then layer the whole dish. Here's what I did differently: I used crushed saltines and freshly grated parmesan. I quartered the onion (so onion-hating son didn't have to hunt for 'em), and then used home-made marinara sauce instead of the tomato paste-hot water. I only used 1/4 cup sugar, and next time I would use even a bit less. I had provolone and some jack cheese....definitely a GREAT combination. This is definitely a KEEPER!!! Thanks for a exquisite supper side dish!!! (did I use enough exclamation marks????) :rofl:

    My husband really loved this and he's kinda picky, he loved it so much he went back for seconds even though he was stuffed! And he wanted me to make it again the next week! I used panko bread crumbs and baked it for 1 hour at 375 degrees (because I'm impatient and also didn't want to eat dinner at 8:00) The second time I made it I used half the sugar because it was way too sweet for me the first time. I also had to add more oil towards the end of frying the eggplant and before adding the onions. Overall it's a very simple and great recipe. Thanks!
