Meal Monday: Eggplant Parmesean


My girl requested this last week & normally I make it healthier than frying but this time I went with pan frying the eggplant and it was so good.

Peel & slice eggplant about 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle both sides with salt & let it sit for a few min. Blot any liquid with paper towel.

Scramble an egg in a bowl. Dip slices in egg then dredge in a mix of seasoned breadcrumbs & Parmesean. Pan fry in butter & oil a couple min on each side until slightly crispy.

Pour a jar of spaghetti sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Lay eggplant slices on top & bake in a 350* oven for about 30 min.

Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella and put back in the oven for a few minutes. Serve with a salad, pasta & garlic bread.

Turned out very good for just throwing something together. This is my only eggplant recipe. Do you have a favorite way to prepare eggplant?
