Grandma Connie's Eggplant Parmesan Src

I don’t have a recipe, but my Grandma’s eggplant is my favorite family holiday dish. Here is my telling of it as I recall making it with her. Friends of my grandma, the Bruno sisters’ method of eggplant slicing is highly controversial.

Prep
Cook
Serves 8people
Ingredients
Eggplant
Flour
Breadcrumbs
Eggs
Tomato sauce
Cheese (parmesan and mozzarella)
Oil (for frying)
Directions
1.
Thinly slice eggplant. (You are probably supposed to salt it to draw the water out, but I will admit I often skip this step.) Eggplant can be sliced width-wise (traditional Caravello method) or length-wise
2.
Bruno sisters method*).
3.
Dredge eggplant in flour, then eggs (beaten), then breadcrumbs (optional – we went without for a few years before gluten-free breadcrumbs were available). Fry eggplant in oil.
4.
Let fried eggplant cool. Eat the best, crispiest looking pieces of eggplant.
5.
Layer remaining eggplant with tomato sauce and cheese. If using mozzarella (optional – it still tastes good lightened up), must be sliced as follows: one slice for recipe, one slice for you, one slice for whoever you are making recipe with.
6.
Bake until it’s hot and cheese is melted!
