Kary's Farmhouse Skillet Eggplant Parmesan

It was a lazy January afternoon around here and I had one big beautiful eggplant, no desire to leave the farm,a giant can of organic tomatoes and lots of leftover cheese from the New Years Eve fondue night. Ah Ha....eggplant parmesan. So I got busy making a nice simple tomato sauce,I cut up the eggplant, dipped it in some beaten up eggs and bread crumbs..got out my friend, cast iron skillet, and fried it all up.Then just layered it all together in another cast iron skillet. When John got home all I had to do was pop it in the oven to bake and make a salad. It is STILL warm outside ....I know...this has got to end sometime....so we just lit some candles and settled in for a cozy skillet supper.

Kary's Farmhouse Skillet Eggplant Parmesan

Slice one large eggplant into thick slices

Dip each slice into some beaten eggs and bread crumbs

Saute in olive oil till brown

Add some salt to taste

Drain on paper towels and set aside

Make a simple tomato sauce. I had some leftover leek and shallots so I just sauteed them, added a big can of organic whole tomatoes, some salt and a splash of white wine and let it all simmer on the stove slowly for an hour or so.

Then just layered the eggplant, sauce and cheese...covered it in foil and baked it at 350 degrees till hot and bubbly.

Sprinkle with parmesan before serving

Do you see the kitty in the first picture..that's Whiskey Sour


  1. Hi Kary, this looks just divine! Your recipes always SMELL so good, even 8,000 miles away! I'm just cooking sausages to go with the extra cheesey Macaroni Cheese tonight, so I obviously caught the dairy theme! Only difference here is that it's about -10c outside! Enjoy your gorgeous weather & thanks for the yummy post. Alice sends love to Buddy xoxo Rachel

  2. Sounds delectable. I love eggplant, but my husband's not a big fan. I think it's the slight bitterness in the skin. I also degorge the eggplant with salt to get the moisture out.
    It sure looks tasty, Kary!

  4. sounds fabulous, and all those wonderful vegetables.

  5. I love this dish!
    @poeticat I am also sensitive to the eggplant's ability 'bite your tongue back' and peel at least some of the skin off my eggplants to lessen this.

  6. Oh yum...everyone is posting food tonight! ha...

  7. Kary, that sounds delicious and EASY. I'm into easy, in my old age! There so much I need to fit in while I sitll can and I hate to waste a minute cooking - though I don't mind the time spent in eating!

  8. This looks delicious...I am getting hungry, too : )

  9. I've never been a huge fan of eggplant. You'll have to convert me one of these days. Though anything "parmesan" sounds tasty.

  10. I did taste it before,it's really nice!:)

  11. YUMMY!
    And Whisky Sour looks so cute and cuddly.
