Eggplant Parm for one

Being the sexy single lady that I am sometimes it's hard to make things in a serving just for one. But this eggplant oh the eggplant! So fantastic!! I want to make this everyday!!!

Randazzo's had baby eggplant so super cheap I couldn't help myself. Ever since Steve's Mom made eggplant on Memorial Day I have been jonesin' for it!!

So here it is my easy eggplant parm for one.

What you will need:
1 baby eggplant
1/4 olive oil
2-3 eggs
1/3 skim milk
3-4 cups of Italian seasoned bread crumbs. qty depends on the size of your eggplant
1/3 of fresh shredded mozzarella

Peel and slice the eggplant. Medium thickness.
Mix eggs and milk
Put your bread crumbs on a plate

Now pour your olive oil in a skillet and heat till its just crackling

Quickly dip each slice of eggplant in your egg mixture. DO it quick because eggplant holds a lot of moisture and you don't want a soggy dinner.
Do this step twice to get a nice coating of bread crumbs on the eggplant.

Gently place in the hot oil for about 2-3 minutes per side depends on how dark or light you want them

While I was doing this I also made up a little pasta and quickie tomato sauce.

The tomato sauce was so simple. 1 can of tomato past and 1 can of diced tomatoes. Heat and season to taste.

Voila! Simple eggplant parm for one. Well one plus lunch the next day!

Keep on Making Stuff!

my yummy dinner! Oh! Don't forget the vino! It's essential!
