the 'I' stands for intoxicating Here's my remake of Eggplant Parmesan replacing the deep-fried battered slices with a whopping thick slab that is lightly coated with a smidgen of panko. Not oily at all and full of flavor thanks to the intoxicating tomato sauce and tasty cheeses.

Recipe Ingredients for Eggplant Steaks with 'I' Sauce

1 large eggplant, ends trimmed
1/2 teaspoon Sea salt
1/3 cup Egg Beaters
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs, Panko
6 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 ounce Hunt's no sugar tomato sauce
1/4 teaspoon Thyme
1/4 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Basil, Dried
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/3 cup dry red wine
3 ounces Colby & Monetrey Jack 2% Milk Shredded

Recipe Directions for Eggplant Steaks with 'I' Sauce

  1. Cut eggplant in 3/4-inch thick slices. Lightly sprinkle both sides with sea salt and place slices in a colander to drain excess moisture. Allow to set for 30 minutes. Wipe off salt with paper towel.

  2. Preheat oven to 450 degree F. Spray an oblong baking dish with cooking spray, set aside.

  3. Heat the tomato sauce with the herbs, lemon juice and wine. Let simmer on medium low heat for 15 minutes stirring to thicken. Remove from heat.

  4. Lay slices on a clean surface or pan and brush top side with Egg Beater. Sprinkle just a bit of Panko, about 1/4 teaspoon, over the top. Flip eggplant slices over and repeat with egg and panko.

  5. Heat a wide skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 teaspoons of oil and cook until panko is brown. Turn the slices over, add another teaspoon of oil and brown the other side. Remove to the oblong baking dish. Cook eggplant in a double batch if needed adding oil as needed.

  6. Spoon the sauce over the eggplant slices and top with the cheese. Cover dish with foil and bake in oven for about 10 minutes. Remove foil and cooked under the broiler if needed to brown the cheese.
