Eggplant Parmigiana with Homemade Marinara Sauce

Grease sometimes gives this dish a bad rap. The trick is to fry the breaded eggplant quickly over high heat, so it doesn't absorb too much oil, then drain on paper towels to remove any excess.

Cook's Notes

Making breadcrumbs is easy and inexpensive. Grate day-old bread against the large holes of a box grater, chop it with a bread knife, or pulse pieces in a food processor. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

    First you need to salt eggplant rounds and "sweat'" them to reduce liquid from eggplant. If you bread eggplant and let sit for 30 min. without "sweating" the liquid from eggplant will come through and make breading soggy. Even if you "sweat" eggplant rounds first, put bread eggplant in fridge to sit for 30 min to reduce additional "sweating" into breading. I liked it with these changes - otherwise breading would be soggy and fall apart when fried. Also, to make main dish, use thinly sliced beef, seasoned and browned in olive oil in each layer.
