1/4 cup olive oil
6 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 large eggplant (about 2 lb.), trimmed, sliced into roughly 20 ¼-inch-thick rounds
1 24-oz. jar marinara sauce
1/2 cup grated Parmesan


Prep: 15 Minutes
Bake: 20 Minutes

Preheat oven to 200°F. Line a baking sheet with paper towels.

Warm 2 Tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Whisk eggs, salt, pepper, garlic powder and parsley in a medium bowl. Working in batches, dip eggplant slices into egg mixture. Shake off excess and place slices in a single layer in skillet. Cook until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer slices to baking sheet; place in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining eggplant. If burned bits accumulate, wipe out skillet with a paper towel between batches and add remaining olive oil.

Warm marinara sauce in a small pan over low heat. Spoon 1 Tbsp. sauce onto each of 4 plates; top each with an eggplant slice. Spoon more sauce over, sprinkle with Parmesan and add another eggplant slice. Repeat layers until no eggplant remains. Top each stack with 2 Tbsp. sauce, sprinkle with more Parmesan and serve.
