Description

This is one of my favorite ways to use my home canned crushed tomatoes. You can also make it with store-bought tomatoes.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Eggplant
  • Kosher Salt
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • ¼ cups Olive Oil
  • 1 quart Homemade Canned Tomatoes (or 16 Oz. Crushed And 16 Oz. Chopped Tomatoes)
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Flour Flavored With Salt And Pepper
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 2 cups Italian Breadcrumbs
  • Peanut Oil
  • 10 ounces, weight Grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Basil

Preparation

Peel eggplant and slice into ½ inch thick slices. Salt generously with kosher salt and drain for at least 1 hour.

Make the sauce while the eggplant is draining. Chop garlic. Heat pan with ¼ cup olive oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 30 minutes to reduce.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Wash eggplant and dry thoroughly in a clean towel or paper towels. In three separate plates, put flour seasoned with salt and pepper, whisked eggs, and Italian breadcrumbs. Dip the slced eggplants first into the flour, then eggs, then breadcrumbs. Fry eggplant in smoking peanut oil until golden brown on both sides. Drain on a paper towel.

In a 9 x 13 baking dish, spread a thin layer of sauce. Layer eggplant, sauce, chopped fresh basil and mozzarella until all the ingredients have been used.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Serves 6.

just saw this in my recipe box and was a friendly reminder to plant some eggplant in my garden this year!
YUM, one of my favorite dishes from the garden!

I love eggplant parm served with a simple Caesar’s salad and garlic bread. I hate making Caesar’s dressing, so I buy Cardini’s. I chop romaine lettuce, croutons (preferably homemade,) Parmesan grated with a potato peeler, the dressing, and salt and pepper.

This turned out great! A simple sauce with excellent flavor made prep easy. I really appreciate the preparation of the eggplant which turned out perfect and not greasy. Thank you.
