Quick Eggplant Parmesan

OK, I goofed. I totally forgot to peel the eggplant before making this modified version of Eggplant Parmesan. I didn't realize it until we sat down to eat. Don't ya' hate that when it happens? I was so heartbroken since it tasted so yummy, that I decided to post the recipe with photos anyway.

I love the taste of Eggplant Parmesan, but I don't like the layered form that it usually takes. It seems like overkill, and so...squishy. Must be a texture thing on my end. I received an eggplant in my Produce Basket, so I decided to do a "quick" version.

The verdict?
Well, despite still having the peel on, these Eggplant Parmesan rounds were a big hit at house. My 2-year old even ate a few bites of eggplant - hooray!

I am also sharing this recipe at Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays - please stop over there to see more yummy recipes!

Quick Eggplant Parmesan

1 eggplant peeled and thinly sliced (**Don't forget!**)
1 egg beaten
2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 cups spaghetti sauce, warmed (I used homemade tomato sauce)
8 oz mozzarella cheese shredded

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Dip eggplant slices in egg, then in bread crumbs.

Place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes on each side.

In a greased 9x13 inch baking dish, put a layer of eggplant slices. Put a dollop of spaghetti sauce on each eggplant round, then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Crank on the broiler, and broil until the sauce is warmed and the cheese is lightly browned.
