Preheat oven to 350°
Be sure to round up all your ingredients.
Wash eggplants for good measure, and slice into 1/2 inch thick rounds. Some folks like to wash the slices and give them a salt bath sweat to try and take out the bitterness. I leave that to you.
Dip eggplant slices in egg, then bread crumbs.
Set aside each breading to prepare for oven baking.
Place olive oil on baking sheet to prevent sticking and to add flavor ! Place single layers of breaded eggplant slices on to baking sheet, a bit of overlap is fine.
Bake for about 20-30 minutes or till a nice golden brownish color (as pictured)
This the fun part! Start layering!! Eggplant, mozzarella , sauce, Parmesan and repeat till you run out of ingredient layers, I like ending with lots of cheese and sauce for baking!
Keep those layers going :)
Mozzarella doesn't have to be perfectly grated I like to just rough-cut knife slices and chunks!
Bake at 350° in a preheated oven for 35 min. or until golden brown, give it a moment to cool before serving and Bon apetito! 😊
Garnished with a bit of parsley here! So delicious...
