Stuffed Eggplant Milanese Con Formaggio

This is a great dish and I had been craving something warming and when I saw eggplants on sale I grabbed one. After preparing I looked at Lyn and said that was a lot of work. She smiled and said it is an act of love. It was well worth it and I better freeze some quickly I already found a way to have it make my plate three times now.

Since Lyn is still on her special strict diet I have to fend for myself, so I had a small eggplants and I cut the ingredient in half.

Prepare first

  • 2 eggs Beaton with 1 teaspoon grated cheese and ¼ teaspoon Bell seasoning.
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive Oil for Frying (about 1 cup) add as needed.
  • ½ lbs. of provolone and mozzarella cheeses

How: Slice the eggplant ¼ inch thick. Lay out on paper towel and sprinkle with salt. After the moisture comes to the surface (little water bubbles) pat dry with paper towel. Flip and repeat. This takes a while we went shopping. There are other methods to draw out the moisture you can Google them.

Dip eggplant in flour, shake off excess and then into egg mixture to cover and shake of excess. Slowly brown on both sides. Set aside.
