  • Summary

    Grease sometimes gives this dish a bad rap. The trick is to fry the breaded eggplant quickly over high heat, so it doesn't absorb too much oil, then drain on paper towels to remove any excess.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups fine plain fresh breadcrumbs (see tip below)
    • 1/2 cup finely grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese (1 ounce)
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 2 large eggplants, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil, plus more if needed
    • Homemade Marinara Sauce
    • 3 cups coarsely grated mozzarella cheese (12 ounces)
    • 3/4 cup finely grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese (1 1/2 ounces)
