I think it's a good idea to bake eggplant parmigiana. Eggplant seems to be just too fragile and when I fry it it falls apart, gets too mushy, and it's not appetizing looking. This one seems to look good even as it comes out of the oven since it's not all together in one casserole. Each slice of eggplant has the sauce and cheese on top of it so it looks nice and neat and tidy. LOL I think a light sprinkling of Panko bread crumbs would make it crispy. Panko is one of my secrets! But now you know!

This recipe was good. The batter does not come out as crispy as when it is fried but you also do not have the mess that comes with frying. My family liked it and I will make it again.

Can anyone tell what the name of the tool Howard used to bread the eggplant

It's called a pigtail food flipper--I found some on Amazon

Very Good! I made this tonight only used all purpose gluten free flour and gluten free bread crumbs. This is a keeper, I will make this again.
