|Tomato Caprese Frittata||Three Meat Chili||South of the Border Salmon||Terry Loves Johnny|
- 2 medium size eggplants, peeled & cut into 1/2" slices
- 2 eggs + 1 Tablespoon water
- 2 1/2 - 3 cups seasoned bread crumbs (Italian style or herb seasoned)
- Optional - Olive oil for quickly browning coated eggplant slices
- 2 cans 15-oz. Dei Fratelli Pizza Sauce
- 2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese or any Italian cheese blend
- 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Prepare a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish by coating it with non-stick vegetable oil spray or use a paper towel to wipe the inside of the dish with oil. Peel eggplant and slice into 1/2" slices. Beat eggs and water in a wide shallow bowl. Place finely ground bread crumbs in a second shallow bowl. Dip each eggplant slice in egg wash, then coat with bread crumbs and stack on a dinner plate.
If you would like to quickly brown the coated slices of eggplant before layering the dish, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in large frying pan on medium-high heat. Place a single layer of eggplant slices in the hot oil. Fry until light brown, flip the slices, distribute 2 more tablespoons oil in the fry pan and fry the 2nd side until light brown. Continue process until all slices are browned.
To assemble the dish, cover the bottom of the casserole with a thin layer of pizza sauce - about 1/2 cup. Arrange a layer of breaded eggplant on top of the sauce. Cover the eggplant with about 1/2 to 2/3 cup of sauce, sprinkle 1/2 to 2/3 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan over sauce. Repeat two more times. You may need to adjust the quantity of sauce and cheese to adequately cover the eggplant slices in each layer. Make sure your casserole layers end with sauce topped with cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes until sauce is bubbling and cheese is melted. Cut into serving sizes with sharp knife and serve with a frying spatula. Complete the meal with a garden salad and garlic bread.
Note: Pizza sauce can be substituted with any of the Dei Fratelli pasta sauces.
