Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Wonderful post, Peep! Thank you!

So you use a chunk of fresh mozzarella for the cheese on top?

Thank you Lee.

I use either sliced mozzarella block or shredded mozzarella (bagged or fresh grated). Depends what I have on hand.

I had a block of mozzarella and pizza sauce left from making ham calzones so that's what I used.

I like to cut the eggplant in thin, lengthwise slices. After cooking and draining, I make a double stack "Napoleon" with the motz being the first on. It helps from allowing the sauce directly on the breading. Once the stack is complete, into the oven @ 425F to melt and brown the cheese. I do not like the gloppy layered casserole style.

Absolutely delicious!

I love the slices even without the sauce and cheese! Perfect!

Looks fantastic Lee!

I used have to hide them while draining. DDs and hub would eat them before they got sauced and cheesed! Lol
