I am Italian and my grandparents showed me how to make REAL Eggplant Parmesan. I do have to say... this recipe is pretty darn close to how we make our recipe. The only thing I recommend doing different is making your own sauce. We also cut the eggplant as thin as possible... the thinner you get the eggplant, the crispier and more flavorful it will be! This is definetly the best Eggplant recipe on this site.

Nice recipe, followed except used home made sauce on hand in freezer. Here's a great tip to dry the eggplant before cooking: Cut in thin slices. Put down several layers of paper towels. Salt the towel, lay slices on top, then salt the top of the slices and cover with a few more layers to paper towels. Let sit 2-3 hours. Rinse, dip in flour and shake off excess, dip in egg/water mixture, then bread crumbs. Just want to share this technique - it was just given to me and had nice results.

I've done similar recipe - this is fast, easy & delicious for all the eggplant lovers. Only note is I bake the eggplant for 8 minutes on each side and bake for 40 minutes total. Nothing worse than uncooked eggplant. Delicious - try this one!
