This recipe worked out perfectly the best part was using Italian seasoned panko bread crumbs. We all loved the eggplant and were taking sample bites as soon as it came out of the oven crispy. Read More

This was really good! I grew eggplant in my garden this year. Hubby isn't fond of eggplant but said he would eat it if I added some meat. So I sautéed onion and green peppers from our garden with some ground turkey and added it to the sauce layer. I also used herbed breadcrumbs (also from our garden)to bread the eggplant. Turned out way better than I had imagined and we will definitely make this one again! Thanks for sharing! Read More

We liked this a lot. I could have used about 1-2 cups more spaghetti sauce. Otherwise it was good and baking the eggplant was a real plus. I did have to use 2 cookie sheets. Read More

I used Italian style Panko breadcrumbs and thought the taste & texture were very good vs regular breadcrumbs. I only used one eggplant to feed two of us - therefore reduced the egg/water by half (and still had too much - I think one egg w/ water would do). I tried not to layer the slices rather they were slightly offset on each other so a) they wouldn't get too soggy and b) so each slice had a small amount of sauce & eventually mozzarella. Served on spinach linguine with the remaining sauce. It was a big hit! Read More

This is an easy healthier alternative from fried eggplant. It is tasty and delicious. I did add extra sauce to it because I was worried it would be dry. Read More

Just made this tonight and I thought it was really good. I didn't have Panko bread crumbs so I used seasoned bread crumbs and added Parmesan cheese garlic powder and some crushed red pepper to the mix. I halved the recipe since I was only feeding 3. I will be making this again! Read More
