This is a recipe my aunt passed on to me. She's been making these for as long as I can remember, and everyone loves them. You can use whatever bread is on hand. Recipe works well with white, wheat, or Italian bread crumbs. If you are in a hurry, you can skip the final step of baking in the oven, and cook the eggplants on top of the stove. This dish is also great topped with tomato sauce and sliced mozzarella cheese just before placing in the oven. Just be sure to cover the pan with aluminum foil before baking, venting with a few knife slits.
