E is for Eggplant...

   Today's letter is E. This was one of my Mother's dishes.
   I know not everyone likes eggplant, but my Mother loved it. So this recipe is for her and all you other lovers out there.

Eggplant Parmigiana


1 ½ lbs  Eggplant
2   eggs
1 tsp  salt
¼ tsp  pepper
½ lb   Mozzarella cheese sliced thin
2 c   Tomato Sauce
¼ c  grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
Cooking oil


Wash the eggplant, but don't peel it. Slice thin.  Beat eggs and season with salt and pepper.  Dip the eggplant slices in the egg, and fry in ½ inch hot oil in large skillet.  Fry the eggplant until golden brown on both sides and drain on paper towels.  Arrange layers of eggplant, cheese and tomato sauce in a 2 quart baking dish.  Sprinkle top with grated cheese.  If there is any beaten egg left, pour this over the top.  Bake in a 350 degree oven, until well heated through, about ½ hour.

Serves 6.
