Eggplant Parmigiana

I had planned on frying the eggplant for this. It tastes so much better than when it it baked. But I could not bring myself to fry it. I kept thinking that we should keep it on the healthy side. Well next time we order subs I am getting a eggplant one because I am sure it will be fried!
So I dipped the eggplant in egg then Panko bread crumbs and baked it for about 15 minutes and flipped them and baked for about another 10 minutes. Next I layered homemade Marinara Sauce, the eggplant, shredded Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Oh I also added seasonings - salt, pepper, oregano and crushed red pepper. The dished baked for about 20 minutes.
Even though I prefer the taste of fried eggplant this was pretty good... and I noticed someone went back for seconds. No I will not name names!

I just did the same thing the other day. Baked not fried. It was "ok" but sort of "eh" compared to fried. I agree. But I felt better because it was healthier. And I used jar sauce. Because I'm not making real sauce. :)
