I love eggplant very much so I wanted to cook it in a different way and I thought it would be good with Parmesan and mozzarella. I ate once a super delicious sandwich with eggplant prepared in this way and I wanted to replicate the recipe. As far as I know, the recipe is Italian and is in vogue also here in Canada. Of course you can consume it with a piece of meat, chicken or beef. The recipe is for 4 persons.
Serves: 4
  • 2 large eggplants
  • 2 eggs
  • breadcrumbs
  • salt
  • Parmesan
  • mozzarella
  • Marinara sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil / sunflower
  • 1 clove garlic
  • a pinch of salt
  • pepper
  • oregano
  • a few parsley leaves
  • 500 ml tomato puree
  • ½ cup white wine (optional)
  1. It's pretty simple the recipe and quite dietetic. I didn't fry the eggplants because they absorb too much oil. Of course, if you love them fried, you can fry them, but I've done it like this:
  2. Peel the eggplants, slice them (about 1 cm thick) and then season with salt. Set them aside for about 20 min to remove the bitterness out of them.
  3. Then wash them, and wipe them with a paper towel to absorb all the water.
  4. Prepare two bowls, one with beaten eggs (with a pinch of salt) and one with breadcrumbs mixed with Parmesan (2 tablespoons)
  5. Dip sliced eggplant in beaten eggs, then in bread crumb mixture and coat thoroughly. Place prepared eggplant on prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Marinara sauce:
  8. In a saucepan put 3 tablespoons of olive oil and a clove of crushed garlic. Fry it a little then pour tomato juice, season with salt, pepper and oregano to taste and let simmer about 5 minutes. Then add the wine and let it simmer for another 5 minutes.
  9. At the end add the chopped parsley.
  10. Top each eggplant piece with two tablespoons marinara sauce and one tablespoon mozzarella cheese. Return to oven and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  11. They are super delicious!
  12. Bon appetite!
