Healthier Eggplant Parmesan II Recipe

Healthier Eggplant Parmesan II


Eggplant slices are dipped in egg whites and whole wheat bread crumbs, then baked instead of fried, creating a healthier version of the traditional dish.


  • 1 whole egg
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 eggplant, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 6 cups spaghetti sauce, divided
  • ¾ pound part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded and divided
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat together egg, egg whites, and water in a shallow bowl. Dip eggplant slices in egg, then bread crumbs. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until fork tender, 7 to 10 minutes on each side.
  3. Spread spaghetti sauce to cover the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Place a layer of eggplant slices in the sauce. Sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Repeat with remaining ingredients, ending with cheeses. Sprinkle basil on top.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 35 minutes.
