Eggplant Parmesan

During my recent trip to Sicily, our group got a cooking lesson! We were split into teams to work on the courses separately, and I was on the appetizer team. We made eggplant parmesan, and it was both scrumptious and surprisingly easy! I definitely plan to make it again!


Here’s Chef Paulo showing us how it’s done:

Basically, we sprayed the ramekins with cooking spray and then coated them in bread crumbs. After that, layer:

  • grilled eggplant slice
  • tomato sauce
  • mozzarella and pecorina cheese
  • eggplant
  • sauce
  • both cheeses
  • eggplant
  • pecorina cheese only
  • bread crumbs

Then flatten out the top with a spoon, and put on the tray to be baked!
I don’t have ramekins at home (only so much cupboard space in my apartment!) but I think I could make these in a muffin tin! :slight_smile:

So tasty!!


Another great adventure for you! Looks very yummy…of course, I love anything with cheese, and so many dishes in Italy use cheese…
