Baked Eggplant Parmesan

baked eggplant parmesan

This past weekend, I ventured into unknown territory using Eggplant for the first time at least as far as I know.  The thought of Eggplant Parmesan sounds so good, I knew that I wanted to try it.  The most common way to make this is frying the eggplant; however, I was trying to keep it as healthy as possible so thanks to a Martha Stewart recipe that I found I decided to bake it instead.

I also ask on my Facebook if you keep it meatless or not?  I had every intent of keeping ours meatless then on a whim I added a pound of ground beef to the sauce because my husband was not in the mood for a meatless meal.  Honestly, I was really happy with the result and glad that I added it mostly because after making it my husband was not a big fan of the texture of the eggplant so he was happy to have the meat in the meal.  I really liked the eggplant and thought this dish was delicious!

I am also going to try this same breading on chicken soon and do a Chicken Parmesan.

I am going to provide you with the recipe I used, remember if you do not want to add the meat just leave that step and ingredient out.

Enjoy this delicious dish!

    Instead of using plain breadcrumbs, you could use the Italian breadcrumbs and omit the oregano and basil because it’s included in the breadcrumb seasoning (or just add them anyhow for extra flavor). Also, I fry mine in a small amount of olive oil and it’s not really much different health-wise as baking would be. Either way, eggplant this way is delicious!!

      I love using olive oil. I will try that Italian Breadcrumbs instead next time, I was actually think about that while making this.

    Looks good! I love eggplant!! I just bought some fresh from the farmers market. I also fried up one from my Mother-in-law’s garden and added to hamburgers.
