Ingredients

How to make it

  • PREHEAT OVEN TO 350
  • MIX THE CANNED TOMATOES INTO A SAUCE PAN WITH THE BOTTLED SAUCE & STIR.
  • ADD THE 2 CHOPPED UP ONIONS & THE HEAD OF GARLIC (BROKEN UP & PEELED)
  • STIR THIS WHILE YOU'RE COOKING THE EGGPLANT SLICES.
  • WASH & THEN SLICE TO THE SAME THICKNESS BOTH EGGPLANTS
  • BEAT THE EGGS IN A FLAT MEDIUM SIZED BOWL
  • POUR AT LEAST 2 CUPS OF BREADCRUMBS INTO A MEDIUM BOWL
  • SEASON THE BREAD CRUMBS WITH 3-4 TABLESPOONS OREGANO & 2-3 TABLESPOONS BASIL & 1-2 TEASPOONS SEA SALT.
  • I USE A CAST IRON SKILLET TO FRY THE EGGPLANT SLICES IN & HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO SO TOO.
  • PUT 4 TABLESPOONS OF OLIVE OIL IN PAN & ON MEDIUM HEAT, WAIT FOR IT TO SMOKE.
  • USING A FORK, DIP THE EGGPLANT INTO THE EGG, THEN BREAD CRMBS & PUT ON A PLATE UNTIL OIL IN PAN HOT ENOUGH TO COOK.
  • ****IF YOU PUT FOOD INTO COOL OR COLD OIL, THE FOOD SOAKS UP THE OIL INSTEAD OF THE HOT OIL SEALING IN THE FLAVOR OF WHAT YOU'RE COOKING.
  • PUT THE EGGPLANT SLICES INTO THE SMOKING OIL, DO NOT CROWD THE PAN.
  • CHECK THE HEAT, MAKE SURE IT'S ABOUT MEDIUM LOW. OTHER WISE YOU WILL BURN YOUR HARD WORK (SEE PHOTO)
  • I COOK EACH SIDE FOR ABOUT 3 MINUTES.
  • IF YOU'RE WORRIED THAT THERE WON'T BE ENOUGH OIL FOR BOTH SIDES THEN PUT IN EACH SLICE & TURN IT OVER. THEN LET THE SIDE THAT'S DOWN COOK FOR ABOUT 3 MINS.
  • WHEN BROWNED, FLIP TO OTHER SIDE & LET IT COOK UNTIL BROWN.
  • REMOVE TO A BROWN PAPER BAG COVERED WITH PAPER TOWELS TO DRAIN EXCESS OIL.
  • I SPRINKLE A LITTLE SEA SALT ON THE COOKED SLICES.
  • WIPE OUT THE FRYING PAN WITH A DRY CLOTH, THEN ADD 4 MORE TABLESPOONS OIL & WAIT FOR IT TO START SMOKING BEFORE YOU ADD EGGPLANT.
  • IF YOUR EGGPLANT IS TURNING OUT TO DARK OR BURNING THEN TURN YOUR HEAT DOWN & WIPE OUT THE PAN. THE BURN COLOR WILL TRANSFER TO YOUR NEW BATCH.
  • *****NOTE***** NEVER EVER NEVER PUT WATER ANYWHERE NEAR HOT OIL FIRE, FIRE, FIRE!!!
  • IF YOU HAVE A GREASE FIRE PUT FLOUR OR BAKING SODA ON IT & GET A LID ON IT IF YOU CAN. DO NOT PUT WATER ON IT AS THIS MAKES IT WORSE.
  • ********FIRE EXTINGUISHERS BELONG IN THE KITCHEN, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE-----------GET ONE & LEARN HOW IT WORKS BEFORE YOU NEED IT. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!! OK?!!!
  • BACK TO OUR COOKING........
  • *****I TAKE A COOKIE TRAY & COVER IT WITH PAPER TOWELS TO PUT THE COOKED SLICES IN THE OVEN (TURNED DOWN TO 150) SO I DON'T EAT ALL THE COOKED SLICES.
  • CUT THE MOZZARELLA CHEESE INTO EVEN SLICES
  • I PUT OLIVE OIL ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BAKING PAN (I USE A BAKING PAN WITH A LID)
  • THEN PUT A LADEL OR A CUP OF THE TOMATO SAUCE OVER THE OIL, SMEAR IT AROUND.
  • OVERLAP THE COOKED SLICES OF THE EGGPLANT IN CIRCLES, ENDING IN THE MIDDLE.
  • SHAKE THE PARMESAN LIBERALLY OVER THE EGGPLANT.
  • THEN LAY THE MOZZARELLA COMPLETELY OVER THE BOTTOM LAYERS.
  • LADEL OR POUR THE TOMATO SAUCE SO IT COVERS THE CHEESE.
  • LAYER THE EGGPLANT, PARMESAN, MOZZARELLA & TOMATO SAUCE TO FILL BAKING DISH.
  • JUST SAVE A LITTLE MOZZARELLA FOR THE TOP.
  • I ALSO SPRINKLE A LITTLE OREGANO & BASIL ON TOP BEFORE I COVER & BAKE IN 350 OVEN.
  • IF YOU'RE NOT SURE IT'S COOKED THROUGH, STICK A FORK IN THE CENTER FOR A COUNT OF 10, PULL THE FORK OUT. IF THE FORKS COLD, IT'S NOT THOROUGHLY COOKED.
  • IF THE FORK IS WARM, THEN IT'S DONE.
  • TAKE IT OUT OF THE OVEN & LET IT SIT FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES. OTHERWISE IT'S LIKE EATING NAPALM. DELICIOUS BUT HOT, HOT, HOT
  • SHARE IT WITH THE PEOPLE YOU CARE ABOUT & ENJOY.
