This is wonderful, and so easy. I used panko instead of crumbs, added garlic powder and oregano. I also used mozzarella and smoked provolone...........just delicious!

Long time fan of eggplant. I like the recipe; although the recipe here only provides enough food for two maybe three people. Family of seven here, had to alter the quantities, but used the same recipe. I think I will still fry my eggplant first even with baking it in the microwave. Frying the eggplant give it a specific flavor not found in the recipe listed here.
