Total: 12Serves: 4
2 Eggplant
1 cup Breadcrumbs
1 cup Parmesan Cheese


1 cup Mozzarella Cheese


1 cup Flour
2 Eggs


2 cups Tomato Sauce
1 cup Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Dried Basil
1 teaspoon Dried Oregano


Step 1 : Preparation

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

Step 2 : Preparation

Slice the eggplants into 1/4-inch thick rounds.

Step 3 : Breading

In a shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, dried basil, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper.

Step 4 : Breading

Dip each eggplant slice into the flour, then into the beaten eggs, and finally into the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere.

Step 5 : Cooking

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the breaded eggplant slices in batches until golden brown on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer the cooked slices to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

Step 6 : Assembly

Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on the bottom of a baking dish. Arrange a layer of cooked eggplant slices on top of the sauce. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Repeat the layers until all the eggplant slices are used, finishing with a layer of mozzarella cheese on top.

Step 7 : Baking

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
