Ingredients1 h 10 m servings 678 cals
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry eggplant slices in hot oil until browned thoroughly, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Add oil between batches as needed. Drain fried eggplant slices on paper towels and season with salt.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add onion and garlic to the beef; cook and stir until onion is golden brown, about 5 minutes more.
- Pour spaghetti sauce over the ground beef; add oregano and stir. Simmer mixture until sauce is heated through, 5 to 7 minutes.
- Arrange about half the eggplant slices into the bottom of a shallow casserole dish to cover completely. Ladle about half the beef sauce over the eggplant. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese over the sauce. Repeat layers.
- Beat egg with 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese; pour over the top of the casserole.
- Bake in preheated oven until bubbling around the edges and hot in the center, 20 to 25 minutes.
- Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I kind of used the recipe and winged it a bit as well. That being said it was delicious!

My husband doesn't like eggplant but he really loved this dish! Instead of using jarred spaghetti sauce I used a a can of stewed whole tomatoes, smashing the tomatoes up with a fork. I also used...
