Chef John's Baked Eggplant Sandwiches
Some people salt the slices of eggplant to draw off liquid, which they say is bitter. I've done this for other eggplant recipes, but not for these sandwiches. With the breading and filling, I actually think the slight bitterness is an advantage.
The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the breading ingredients. The actual amount of the breading consumed will vary.
