I too peel my eggplant and I slice it and salt a little before I start.<20 min. then pat dry> My choice is to fry the slices in Olive Oil. I use the panko breading and season it with fresh spices if possible and grated Garlic & Parmesan. The Parmesan and Mozzarella really enhance the top slices after frying on both sides. Actually for this recipe I use the Hunts Sauce and the diced tomatoes give it a fresh taste with real Basil. If you have a small green pepper, I slice it very thin and put it on top of the tomatoe mixture. Very delicious with sliced french bread and grated cheese on the toasted slices.

I make one similar to this. Peel the eggplant. I use panko style bread crumbs with the parm and Italian seasoning mixed. Dip the eggplant slices in favorite Italian salad dressing, then crumb mixture. I line a large baking pan with foil and top with one of my cooling racks so the bottom doesn't get soggy. Bake eggplant on the racks for 20 min. turning once. Top with mozzarella and serve with marinara sauce, homemade in my case.

I just printed this recipe and went into the kitchen and made it. I did peel the eggplant as I always do no matter how I fix it. I would rather the eggplant have been a little crusty out of the oven, but it was good. I forgot I didn't have any Mozzarella so I just sprinkled Parmesan over the top after I placed the eggplant onto the sauce in the bowl. I am eating a serving right now. I would make it again, but perhaps fry the eggplant lightly rather than bake it. Yumm!

Its good and quick. Skin has to come off because it can be bitter. I had to cook it 10 minutes on both sides. Pam is a bummer. I put a few drops of EVOO on it for a better taste.

I made this dish with non-dairy cheese, made it a great VEGAN recipe that everyone enjoyed!
