Here’s a classic Eggplant Parmesan recipe:

Ingredients for Eggplant Parmesan:

  • 2 medium-sized eggplants, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
  • Salt
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs (you can use panko or homemade breadcrumbs)
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 3 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)

Instructions for Eggplant Parmesan:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Slice the eggplants into rounds, about 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle salt on both sides of the eggplant slices and place them in a colander for about 30 minutes. This helps draw out excess moisture and bitterness from the eggplant. Rinse the slices and pat them dry with paper towels.
  3. In a shallow dish, mix the breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan cheese.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk.
  5. Dip each eggplant slice first into the egg mixture, allowing excess to drip off, then coat both sides with the breadcrumb-Parmesan mixture.
  6. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the breaded eggplant slices in batches until golden brown on both sides, adding more oil as needed. Place the fried slices on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  7. Spread a thin layer of marinara sauce on the bottom of a baking dish. Place a layer of fried eggplant slices on top of the sauce, slightly overlapping them.
  8. Spoon more marinara sauce over the eggplant slices and add slices of fresh mozzarella on top.
  9. Repeat layering with the remaining eggplant, sauce, and mozzarella, finishing with a final layer of marinara and mozzarella on top.
  10. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  11. Remove the foil and broil for an additional 3-5 minutes until the cheese is golden brown.
  12. Once done, let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh basil leaves if desired.
