I’ve been feeling in a bit of rut lately with cooking, because it feels as though I’ve been making the same things over and over again! So I decided to switch it up today. My favorite meal of ALL TIME is Eggplant Parmesan. I can’t get enough. However, my usual recipe does not fit in the 21 Day Fix nutrition plan. I basically use a half bottle of oil to fry up the eggplant. Right.
I put together a Fix-approved version and it was DELICIOUS. My husband loved it so much that he got bummed out when he back for more and we’d already eaten it all. Here’s what I did.
Slice up your eggplant. Dip it in eggs and place it on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Top with your seasoned breadcrumbs. Bake for about 15-20 minutes depending how thick your slices are. Take it out the oven and use a spatula to move the baked eggplant from the baking sheet to your casserole dish. Pour your sauce over the eggplant. Top it with your cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling. I served mine over a bed of steamed Zoodles.
