"I like this recipe because it is not fried and very tasty. I like to make it healthier by using whole wheat breadcrumbs and reducing the amount of fat. Also, by using mostly egg-whites instead of whole eggs I am able to reduce the cholesterol level."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat together egg, egg whites, and water in a shallow bowl. Dip eggplant slices in egg, then bread crumbs. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until fork tender, 7 to 10 minutes on each side.
  3. Spread spaghetti sauce to cover the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Place a layer of eggplant slices in the sauce. Sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Repeat with remaining ingredients, ending with cheeses. Sprinkle basil on top.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 35 minutes.

Absolutely delicious! This was my first eggplant recipe and it turned out great. Like the other reviews, I would recommend baking the eggplant for about 6 to 7 minutes per side instead of 5 to e...

The recipe turned out delicious. However it was a lot of work prepping and the final 'presentation' with the baked eggplant looked dry. It wasn't dry, just looked as if it might be. It was for...

A really tasty dish. My eggplant was a bit chewy, so could probably have used a few more minutes in the oven. Also, halved the original recipe. Definitely will use this recipe again as soon as w...

Great alternative to frying eggplant! The only thing is I prefer panko bread crumbs over regular and I did add salt, pepper, and italian seasoning to bread crumbs before I dipped eggplant. I al...

The eggplant really needs to cook at 425 F, 350 is too low and it will be unpleasantly chewy. I made the recipe twice, and it was much better when the eggplant was cooked at a hotter temp. Other...

Excellent recipe. For an even healthier version try using ground flax seed and water mixture at a ratio of 1 tbsp flax to 3 tbsp water as a substitute for the eggs. Then prepare the eggpl...

Made this last night for dinner. I cut the recipe in half since I was just cooking for myself, but I followed everything else exactly. Turned out GREAT!

This was a winner. Made a few changes based on what i had available, Panko and Provolone instead of whole wheat and mozzerella. It was fantastic.

This was really good. The only thing I changed was that I added a little ricotta cheese. Amazing!

Excellent way in which to cook an Eggplant Parmesan without the frying. My additions: * 1/2 cup sauteed onion, two garlic cloves and about 8 fresh mushrooms sliced. (I had halved the recipe) I...
