Lowfat Eggplant parmesan

Introduction

A super easy version of the crispy fried eggplant parm I love! A super easy version of the crispy fried eggplant parm I love!
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 large eggplant peeled and sliced into 1/2inch rounds
    1 egg, beaten with 1/4 cup water
    1/2c bread crumbs
    1/2c parm cheese
    1 tbl garlic powder
    1 cup tomato sauce
    1/2c mozzarella cheese, part skim

Directions

1.Place the eggplant in a single layer on a kitchen towel. Generously sprinkle salt on top and place another towel on top. Allow to sit for 30 min (this pulls out excess liquid as well as the bitterness).
Lightly rinse eggplant of salt and pat dry.
2.Preheat oven to 450. Mix together breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and garlic powder in a shallow bowl.
3. Place eggplant in egg-water wash, then in breadcrumb mixture. Place on cookie sheet generously coated with cooking spray.
4.Bake for 15-20 min, turning halfway or until browned and crispy.
5.Then either layer eggplant and sauce in a baking dish or put a spoonful of sauce on each round, top with cheese and bake until melted.

    This was amazing... my hubby & I couldn't stop raving about how good it was. I added fresh basil and sauteed onions to the sauce. I can't wait to have leftovers for lunch tomorrow! - 3/21/10

    This is a great alternative oven method compared to the
    battered and pan fried sliced eggplant that I made like
    lasagna. I use the "Hunt's Zesty,Spicy Pasta sauce". GREAT!! - 1/10/10

    Fabulous! So nice and crispy on the outside, but soft and tender on the inside. I loved it! I substituted the 1/2 cup of cheese for 1/4 cup of basil and it turned out perfect! I'll make it again and again.

    Thanks for getting me out of my cooking rut with this delicious new recipe! - 6/7/09

    Everyone said they've never had such good eggplant Parmesan! Apparently they were all worried when they said I was going to make it - but after the first taste, their worries were gone! - 3/8/08

    WOW! I think this is the first time I cooked something that I felt was worth the effort of making from scratch rather than getting at a restaurant. My extremely carnivorous boyfriend LOVED it - the first time I've gotten him to eat a completely vegetarian meal. Easy to make, even easier to eat! yum! - 5/16/11

    OH EM GEE!!! I'm in love! My honey also enjoyed it & he's not an eggplant fan. Added Italian seasoning to bread crumb mixture & used Hunt's Traditional Spagetti Sauce instead of plain tomato sauce. Heavenly!!! - 7/29/11

    This was quite possibly the best eggplant parmesan i have ever eaten... high fat or otherwise. The best part was that my non recipe following hubby made it (bonus) and he said it was suoer simple (double bonus) Thanks for the recipe! - 3/8/10

    I've always love EPP, but never had the nerve to make it. Hubby grew some ep in the garden and has been bugging me to cook it, so I used this recipe!

    Fantastic! I especially like the tip about using the salt to remove any bitterness. It's very tender and not bitter at all.

    Thanks for shar - 8/25/09

    This was the best tasting eggplant Parmesan I have ever eaten! I like the crispiness of the eggplant vs soft and kind of soggy in other recipes I have made. Thanks! - 11/30/08

    Im on my second piece right now! YUM! This is the first time I have actually tried to cook with eggplant. It turned out great. My hubby loves it too! Its really easy. I used spaghetti sauce instead of tomatoe sauce. Also I might try and create something with just the breaded eggplant. - 3/30/08

  • Very tasty! I added mushrooms, green peppers and crushed red pepper flakes. I used seasoned panko crumbs. I would slice the eggplant a little thinner next time but I will definitely make this again. - 4/3/14

  • I made a couple minor changes. I used pizza sauce instead of plain tomato sauce, but I did not add garlic powder to the crumb and Parmesan cheese mixture. I think it's a lot of work to make this, but it's worth it. - 11/3/13

  • Delicious! My only comment is 928.7 mg of sodium is way high. I cut it down by using panko breadcrumbs which only contains 55 mg of sodium vs 450 mg for other brands. I also used salt free tomato sauce. I've made this several times already and each time it just gets better. - 8/28/13
