Eggplant, fruity tomato sauce and melting cheese …

The star of this dish is undoubtedly the eggplant. It serves as the hearty base, providing a satisfying meaty texture. When cooked, the eggplant becomes tender, creating the perfect foundation for tomato sauce and cheese.

The traditional Italian recipe asks for breadcrumbs to coat the eggplants. We’ve opted for cornflakes as a replacement because it gives a nice crunch. But if you only have breadcrumbs at home, they will definitely do the job. Although this recipe asks for both parmesan and mozzarella, but you can always go heavier or lighter on the cheese to make it to your liking.

Eggplant parmesan

May we present one of the best comfort foods out there: Eggplant Parmesan! This classic Italian favorite is made by layering crispy breaded eggplant slices with rich marinara sauce, melty mozzarella cheese, and grated Parmesan.

Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time40 minutes
Total Time50 minutes


  • 1 eggplant (medium-large)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 40 g cornflakes (or bread crumbs)
  • 2 tbsp parmesan (grated; optional: some more to sprinkle on top)
  • 400 ml marinara sauce (or your fav tomato sauce)
  • 1 ball mozarella


  • Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees and spread about 2 tbsp of oil in a baking mould. We use a casserole dish.
  • Slide the eggplant in about 1.5cm thick slices.
  • In one flat bowl, whisk one egg using a fork. In another flat bowl, crumb the cornflakes with your fingers. Don't crunch them too much to retain some texture. They should still be small pieces. Add parmesan and a pinch to salt to the cornflakes and mix.
  • Dip one eggplant slice at a time in the egg, and flip over so both sides are covered. Then dip it in the cornflakes mix, again making sure both sides are covered. Place in the greased mould.
    Repeat with each slice, and then pour the remaining cornflakes mix on top the eggplant slices so it doesn't go to waste.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, flip over and bake for another 15.
    Then pour over your marinara sauce and top with mozzarella bits. Slide back in the oven for another 3-5 minutes until the mozzarella is melted.
  • Enjoy with bread or pasta

    Hallo, habe heute eure Auberginen mit Parmesan nachgekocht.
    Mozarella war leider aus, aber mit geriebenem Gouda vermischt mit dem Parmesan war es auch sehr köstlich. Eine Dose Tomaten, Knobi und Basilikum on Top, echt lecker!😋
