Excellent recipe -- this is the only way I will eat eggplant! Per other reviews, I salted 1/4" slices and let sit for ~30 minutes before patting dry. This improved the texture and removed any bitterness. I cracked some pepper on each side before dipping into the egg (yolks omitted), and used panko rather than standard breadcrumbs for extra crispness. I spritzed each side with olive oil spray and cooked at 400F, 10 minutes per side. I finished them off under the broiler (~3 minutes per side, or until golden brown). I used a garlic and herb spaghetti sauce, preheated, assembled everything in a baking dish, and simply finished under the broiler until the mozzarella was golden and bubbly. The eggplant was cooked to perfection!
