How to Make Eggplant Parmigiana in 30 Seconds from

Can you really make egg plant parmigiana in 30 seconds?

No, you can't. But check out this 30 second video:

Eggplant Parmigiana Recipe

A wonderful dish that tastes better
the second time around!


1 medium egg plant
1/2 cup bread crumb
1-2 beaten eggs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
Olive oil
Basic Red Sauce
(Link will take you to recipe and video)


  • Peel egg plant. Slice the eggplant.
  • Dip egg plant in egg mixture and then in bread crumbs covering both sides.
  • Heat olive oil in pan, and fry egg plant until lightly browned.
    (Before cooking the eggplant, my mom and grandmother would put a clove or two of garlic in the oil, let it turn brown and then discard. "This is to flavor the olive oil," they would say.)
  • Drain on paper towel. (After frying a few pieces of eggplant, you can continue to the next step.)
  • Ladle a small amount of sauce into a baking dish or baking pan.
  • Place a single layer of egg plant, cheese and sauce.
  • Repeat this process until you are out of room or egg plant.
  • Top with sauce and cheese.
  • Bake in a 350ยบ oven for 30 to 45 minutes. Can be cooked longer, but cover the baking dish so the eggplant won't dry out.

    Hints and Tips
  • Cheese can be omitted from recipe and it will still be good!
  • A low fat version of this dish can be made by omitting cheese and broiling the egg plant instead of frying.
  • Eggplant can be served as a main course or side dish.
  • A small eggplant can go a long way.
  • Some people prefer to leave the skin on the eggplant, which is fine. I prefer to peel it.
  • Use the eggplant in a sub or grinder sandwich. This will knock your socks off!
