Ingredients

  • 1 medium eggplant, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs*
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 (14-ounce) crusty French bread loaf, halved horizontally
  • 2 cups pasta sauce
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Pasta sauce (optional)

Preparation

  1. Sprinkle eggplant evenly on both sides with salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  2. Whisk egg whites in a shallow bowl until frothy. Set aside.
  3. Combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl.
  4. Dip eggplant slices in egg whites, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Arrange on a wire rack coated with cooking spray in an aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan. Lightly coat eggplant slices evenly on both sides with cooking spray.
  5. Bake at 375° for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and eggplant is tender, adding split bread halves to oven during the last 5 minutes.
  6. Spread pasta sauce evenly on cut sides of bread. Arrange eggplant on bottom half of bread; sprinkle with cheese.
  7. Broil 6 inches from heat 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Cover with top half of bread. Cut into 6 sandwiches, and serve with pasta sauce, if desired.
  8. *1 cup Italian breadcrumbs may be substituted for panko breadcrumbs.
