Foodie Friday ~ Eggplant Mozzarella Melt

Hi Friends,

I come to you today with an eggplant recipe that is so good!!!

Yum! Yum! Yum!

I made this with a friend and it was the first time I had ever tried eggplant. Holy Moly I have been missing out! So good!

Eggplant Mozzarella Melt


The recipe is a Martha Stewart Recipe and comes from here:


2 large eggs 
Coarse salt and ground pepper 
3/4 cup plain dried breadcrumbs 
Olive oil, for baking sheet 
1 medium eggplant (about 1 pound), sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
1 loaf (8 ounces) soft Italian bread 
2 cups store-bought tomato sauce 
8 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 475 degrees. In a shallow bowl, lightly beat eggs with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread breadcrumbs in a pie plate or shallow bowl.

Oil a rimmed baking sheet. Dip eggplant rounds in egg, then dredge in breadcrumbs, turning to coat completely; transfer to prepared baking sheet. Bake (without turning) until golden and tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, split bread lengthwise, and place cut side up on another baking sheet; press gently in centers to create a well. Layer both halves with tomato sauce, eggplant, and cheese. Bake until cheese is browned in spots, 6 to 8 minutes.

And here is our version!

Sorry… we were out of beautiful wood planks to display it on! Haha!!

Much cheesier and so darned delish! 


I hope you take the time to make this dish!

You will not be disappointed!


Thanks for stopping by today.

Until next time…
