Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry eggplant slices in hot oil until browned thoroughly, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Add oil between batches as needed. Drain fried eggplant slices on paper towels and season with salt.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add onion and garlic to the beef; cook and stir until onion is golden brown, about 5 minutes more.
  4. Pour spaghetti sauce over the ground beef; add oregano and stir. Simmer mixture until sauce is heated through, 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Arrange about half the eggplant slices into the bottom of a shallow casserole dish to cover completely. Ladle about half the beef sauce over the eggplant. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese over the sauce. Repeat layers.
  6. Beat egg with 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese; pour over the top of the casserole.
  7. Bake in preheated oven until bubbling around the edges and hot in the center, 20 to 25 minutes.

This has great flavor! Note: I did not mention eggplant when serving this - everyone loved it. I used a 9 x 6" baking dish, which made it a little thicker than probably intended - it worked well for us. (I did have a little sauce leftover, but that was OK) The beaten egg on the top was a bit different for us but worked just fine. Warning, this does not cut as pretty as I would like but the taste more than makes up for that. Thanks!
