I found this recipe after and outing with Jake to Olive Garden, he loves Olive Garden. He had decided to try their eggplant parmeasan just for somthing new and fell in love.
Natrually, being a newly wed (this was our first year) I wanted to impress him by making some for him. I googled and it has been so long that I don't remember my source.
But it is Mmm-mmm good!
What you'll need:
1 Eggplant, sliced 1/2" thick pieces
1/3 C Parmesan cheese
1/2 C Flour
1/2 C Bread crumbs
1 pkg SpagettiSpagetti sauce (I used Prego, but you can also make your own; see below*)
Start by boiling your water...
Pre-heat your oven to 400 oF
Then you want to prepare your eggplant; slice it into 1/2" peices
Next crack your eggs in a mixing bowl and whisk!
Mix the rest of your ingredients in a separate bowl; flour, parmesan cheese & breadcrumbs
Spray down a baking sheet with Pam
Dredge you eggplant slices in egg...
...and then in your flour, breadcrumb & cheese mixture. Make sure you cover both sides!
Arrange on your baking sheet
The recipe says you should spray the tops with Pam, but I'm not much of a excess Pam fan. I pat on olive oil to cover the dry tops.
And then pop those bad boys in the oven for 10 minutes
After you ten minutes pull your sheet out and flip your slices over. Cook the other side for another ten minutes.
While your other sides cook heat up your sauce.
*You can also make your own with 1 can Tomato paste, 1 can Tomato sauce, cooked hamburger, garlic and italian seasoning.
Pull your slices out after your second 10 minutes
Compile your plate and chow down!
