Eggplant Parmesan

This makes a nice crispy eggplant parm that is tasty and satisfying. You can always substitute regular breadcrumbs, but I think this comes out better with the panko breadcrumbs.

1/4 c skim milk
2 large eggs
1 1/2 c panko breadcrumbs
1/2 t salt
1/2 t parsley flakes
1/2 t garlic powder
1/4 t oregano flakes
1/4 t pepper
1 large eggplant, peeled and cut crosswise into 1/4 inch thick slices
1 T oil
24 oz. marinara sauce
½ c shredded mozzarella cheese
½ c shredded or grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine milk and eggs in a bowl. In another bowl combine breadcrumbs, salt, parsley, garlic, oregano and pepper. Dip eggplant slices into the egg mix, then into the breadcrumbs to coat. Press down on the crumbs to make sure they stick well. Spray a baking sheet with Pam and place the eggplant slices on it, drizzle with half the oil and bake for 15 minutes. Turn slices over and drizzle with the rest of the oil and bake another 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees. Place 1/2 c sauce in an 11×7 baking dish and place half the eggplant slices in the pan and then spoon 1 cup sauce over. Sprinkle with ½ of each of the cheeses and then repeat the layer. Bake 20 minutes or until bubbly.
