  1. Cut eggplant into 1/4-in.-thick slices. Place in a colander over a plate; sprinkle with salt. Let stand for 30 minutes. Rinse under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, garlic salt and pepper. In another shallow bowl, beat eggs. Dip eggplant into eggs, then coat with crumb mixture.
  3. In a large skillet, cook eggplant in 2 tablespoons oil for 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Transfer to an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. In the same skillet, saute the green pepper, onion and mushrooms in remaining oil for 5 minutes or until pepper and onion are crisp-tender. Sprinkle over eggplant. Top with tomatoes.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. Uncover; place cheese slices over the top. Bake 25-30 minutes longer or until cheese is lightly browned.

Very tasty! I made the recipe as is. It was very simple to follow. I agree with other reviewers about the prep time. It took me double the time listed (45 mins). Prep time is a huge factor ...

Eggplant slices should be cut thicker to really feature the main ingredient. This reminded me of a really great veggie lasagna. It was a hit with my family and friends.

What a wonderful recipe. I made it a main dish by adding venison burger and italian sausage with some italian seasoning. My six guests raved over this new interesting dish.
