Cook Time

Ingredients:

 

1 medium eggplant

2 eggs

1 1/4 cups breadcrumbs

1 cup grated Parmesan

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon basil

Coarse salt and pepper

 

How to Make It:

 

 

Put your rack near the top of your oven and make sure there is space for your baking sheet and eggplant. Set the oven to the broil setting.

 

Cut your eggplant into wedges, making them fairly thin, so the eggplant will soften when you broil it. Set aside.

 

Whisk the eggs into a shallow bowl or baking dish. Set aside.

 

Combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, oregano, basil, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl or baking dish. Set aside.
