About

I’m not even going to attempt to tell you that I know how to make Eggplant Parmesan. I will tell you that I had an eggplant in the frig from a failed attempt to try another recipe. I no longer had the ingredients for that recipe, so I decided to make my own version of Eggplant Parmesan.

I have to say it turned out pretty darn good, but how can you miss when the ingredients include crunchy Panko and creamy Parmesan cheese?

Happy cooking!
