Baked-Eggplant Parmesan

Choose firm, smooth eggplants. We bake rather than fry ours for less mess and less fat.

    It was very good. Clean and not greasy at all. Much better than frying. I would add some garlic in the future and use fresh oregano and basil if possible.

    This batter works well for zucchini fries, my only recommendation after playing around is to sprinkle the veggies with salt to make them "sweat" for 30 mins and thus a little firmer.

    This recipe was the 'bom diggity". I was excited to make the Eggplant Parmesan dish. It turned out perfect. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    Used panko style bread crumbs and Herbs de Provence. Also homemade sauce.

    Made it and it came out very good. Used home made sauce and Fontina cheese.However, the overall baking time for the eggplant seems too long. Mine came out pretty mushy. I would shorten the time baking the eggplant next time. Time in the oven for the assembled dish seemed good.

    This is an amazing recipe made just as detailed. I can't wait to serve to friends who share the love of cooking like myself. Personally I rate this a 5!

    Have made this several times and it is excellent.....even better the next day as leftovers. It is important to use a high quality sauce. I use Rao's marinara which is expensive but worth it. It is not chunky as the recipe calls for but chunkiness is not a necessary thing for this recipe. Save time by not peeling eggplant and cut slices thinner than called for....more like 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick. Recipe calls for 2 eggplants; I've made it using just one big one and it is just fine.

    Want a meal in itself? This is it! Add a salad, and maybe some good bread (if you want the extra carbs), and you have a meatless main dish. I've made this twice, and both times it has been excellent. The first time, I made the whole recipe. The 2nd time, I cut it in half. My husband and I have leftovers with 1/2 the recipe! I used Italian bread crumbs and added some oregano. YUM! Thank you Martha (or staff)!
