  • Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.

  • Combine eggs with a splash of water in a separate shallow dish. Coat both sides of an eggplant slice with the egg mixture. Dip eggplant slice in the bread crumb mixture to coat. Place slice onto the baking sheet. Repeat coating the remaining eggplant slices. Drizzle remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil over the breaded slices.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If desired brownness is not achieved with baking, you can always put the pan under the broiler until desired brownness is reached.

Great and easy way to make eggplant. I followed the recipe as is but I first got rid of excess water in the eggplant by salting it after cutting it and letting towels soak up the water for a few hours. Then I rinsed off the salt and dried them before following the recipe. I used panko seasoned breadcrumbs. Read More

Eggplant and I have had some trying times on eggplant recipes, but this one was simple and the eggplant was crunchy. Dipped into some marinara sauce and it's hard to stop! Read More

I had such a taste for this, it should have made me very happy but it did not. Perhaps 1/4 " was too thin. It was dry and I didn't get any of the taste of creamy eggplant. Even the breading was dry. Just didn't taste like much. Really sorry, but will not make again. Read More

could take some more spice. Using the broiler at the end really helps the browning. Read More
