A very nice, simple dinner. Quite tasty too.

    First, assemble your ingredients. To fill a 9 x 13 pan, you need 2 medium sized eggplants. Wash them before you start working with them. Make those babies nice and shiny. Note: If you plan on putting this in the oven right after you're done assembling, pre-heat your oven to 350F. Don't pre-heat your oven until you've finished Sautéing all of the eggplant. I'll remind you in that step, so don't worry.

  2. Small 15122

    Watch out for the stems. I had no idea they were prickly. I ended up with barbs in my hands and was picking them out for 10 minutes or so.

  3. Small 15123

    Go ahead and cut the top off, it's not that tasty.

  4. Small 15124

    Start peeling, get all the skin off. You do NOT want the skin in this. It's really tough and chewy.

  5. Small 15125

    Bad picture, but this is the bottom of the eggplant, where there's a small brown spot. Cut that out.

  6. Small 15126

    Now for the cutting into slices. Keep in mind, when you Sauté these slices, they will get thinner. So be generous, make them a quarter of an inch thick. For mine, I made little slice marks before i started cutting, to try and make them all uniform.

  7. Small 15127

    Another tip to make it easier, cut the slice on the end first, then the middle. The more you have to work with when it gets down to chopping two slices apart, the less likely you are to lose a finger in the fray.

    Now that you've got all your eggplant chopped, you can move on. If you only use two eggplants, you will NOT have this much eggplant piled up, so don't be worried. When I did this, I was making two pans, instead of just one.

  9. Small 15129

    Now you need eggs and breadcrumbs. Put them in bowls right next to each other for limited mess. Maybe put paper towels underneath them...

  10. Small 15130

    Beat two eggs in a bowl, if you end up needing more no worries, I did.

  11. Small 15131

    Dis the eggplant slices in the egg, covering them.

  12. Small 15132

    Transfer to breadcrumb bowl, cover generously.

  13. Small 15133

    Set aside on plate like this. Get them all done before you move on.

  14. Small 15134

    Now to Sauté it all. Use vegetable oil generously. If you don't they get too crispy. It may take some trial and error to find out how Sautéed you want them.

  15. Small 15135

    They should look like this on both sides when they're done.

  16. Small 15136

    Go ahead and pile them up. Now you're ready for assembly of the whole thing. Side Note: If you're cooking right away, start to pre-heat your oven to 350F now.

  17. Small 15137

    Get your 9 x 13 pan, spray it with non-stick, put spaghetti sauce in the bottom of the pan. It doesn't have to be too much, but enough to cover the bottom of the pan in a thick layer.

  18. Small 15138

    Now it's time for cheeeeeese. Provolone first. Layer the bottom evenly.

  19. Small 15139

    Next I put in Mozzarella.

  20. Small 15140

    Here's the fun part. Later down that baby with the eggplant pieces. Try to make it even.

  21. Small 15141

    Next cover in shredded cheeses.

  22. Small 15142

    (Optional) rip up pieces of provolone and mozzarella and throw them on top.

  23. Small 15143

    Layer with more sauce.

  24. Small 15144

    Assembly finished.

  25. Cover with foil.

  26. Put in oven (pre-heated for 350F), set to cook for an hour.
