We liked this a lot. I could have used about 1-2 cups more spaghetti sauce. Otherwise, it was good and baking the eggplant was a real plus. I did have to use 2 cookie sheets.

This is an easy healthier alternative from fried eggplant. It is tasty and delicious. I did add extra sauce to it because I was worried it would be dry.

I used Italian style Panko breadcrumbs and thought the taste & texture were very good vs regular breadcrumbs. I only used one eggplant to feed two of us - therefore reduced the egg/water by half (and still had too much - I think one egg w/ water would do). I tried not to layer the slices, rather they were slightly offset on each other so a) they wouldn't get too soggy [and b) so each slice had a small amount of sauce & eventually mozzarella. Served on spinach linguine with the remaining sauce. It was a big hit!

This recipe worked out perfectly, the best part was using Italian seasoned panko bread crumbs. We all loved the eggplant and were taking sample bites as soon as it came out of the oven crispy.

I had so many great reviews on this one. I did add Italian seasoning to the Cracker mix...bout 2 tsp and it was just amazing....Tasted so good.

Great recipe. This was my first attempt at Eggplant Parmesan and it turned out great. I only used 1 small eggplant and half bottle of sauce, and only made one layer. I also added sliced tomato on top of pre-cooked eggplant and cooked all together. Will definitely make again.
