This past week I decided to make Eggplant Parmesan. I know that this is something that lots of people do make, but to me its something to be bought, so I cooked it instead.
I have my breading station all set up, flour, eggs and then bread crumbs mixed with spices.
There is a lot going on in this picture. In the back I have some breaded eggplants slices ready to pan fry. then in the middle I have some slices pan frying and the sauce pot. In front I have one layer of sauce, then eggplant, then more sauce, then cheese. The second layer of eggplant is in the middle of going on top of that.
The final product ready to go into the oven. After the second layer of eggplant goes more sauce and then cheese.
In my opinion the final product did not come out as well as I would have liked. I sliced the eggplant into 1/2 inch slices, if I was going to make this again I would use 1/4 inch slices. Additionally, I would have put the cheese on top later in the baking so as not to overcook it. Finally, I need to get more practice coating things in bread crumbs. This is the conclusion to the first Aryeh Cooks post, please give suggestions as to what I should make for the next one.
