Eggplant Parmigiano Reggiano

Directions:

STEP 1

Preheat the oven to 375°F. To make the filling, mix the breadcrumbs and cheese with the broth. Add the eggs, butter, seasonings and parsley and blend well. This can be done a day in advance. Keep the filling in a covered dish in the refrigerator.

STEP 2

Cut the crown of each eggplant, halve them lengthwise, and with a spoon, remove some of the inside of each one. Fill each eggplant with 3 tablespoons of the filling.

STEP 3

Spread about an inch of tomato sauce in a casserole. Nestle the eggplants in the sauce. The sauce should not cover the eggplants. Cover the casserole with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove the foil, sprinkle with shredded Mozzarella and bake 15 minutes more until the eggplants are cooked, the filling is golden and the sauce has reduced.

Eggplant Parmigiano Reggiano

Directions:

STEP 1

Wash the eggplants, remove the crowns, and slice each eggplant into 3/8-inch slices. To help drain some of the natural water from the eggplant, follow this process: Put a double layer of paper towels on a baking sheet, place half of the eggplant slices in a single layer on the paper towels and liberally sprinkle with kosher salt. Cover with another double layer of paper towels. Repeat the same process with a second baking sheet and the rest of the eggplant. When finished, stack the second baking sheet on top of the first. On top of that, rest a third sheet and weigh it down with something heavy like a large cooking pot filled with water. Let the eggplant slices sit and drain for an hour.

STEP 2

Put the flour, well-seasoned with salt and pepper, in a shallow dish; put the beaten eggs in a second dish; and the breadcrumbs in a third dish. Pour a ¼-inch layer of olive oil in a heavy frying pan and heat until hot but not smoking. In batches, dip the eggplant slices first in the flour, shaking off the excess, next in the egg, and then in the breadcrumbs. Fry on both sides until golden. Drain the slices on a baking sheet spread with paper towels.

STEP 3

Preheat the oven to 375°F. In the bottom of a 9 x 14 x 2-inch baking dish, spread one cup of tomato sauce. Layer half the prepared eggplant slices on top, slightly overlapping them to make them fit. Cover with half the Mozzarella, and a third of the Parmigiano Reggiano. Spread half of the remaining tomato sauce over the two cheeses, and layer the remaining slices of eggplant over the sauce. Add the rest of the Mozzarella and another third of the Parmigiano Reggiano. Top with the last of the tomato sauce and the Parmigiano Reggiano.

STEP 4

Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is golden. The eggplant will be cooked, but not overcooked and falling apart. Cover loosely with foil and let stand for at least 15 minutes before serving.

STEP 5

Leftover eggplant Parmigiano Reggiano makes a satisfying sandwich filling, and is delicious when chopped up and used as a pasta sauce or spread over dough and baked as a pizza. Eggplant Parmigiano Reggiano can be served as a main course or as an appetizer any time of the year. Best of all, you can make this eggplant Parmigiano Reggiano recipe ahead of time and reheat it just before serving.

This recipe for eggplant Parmigiano Reggiano – also known as Parmigiana – is classic both in Italy and America. Any eggplant Parmigiano Reggiano recipe can be varied by using different cheeses, though the Parmigiano Reggiano® cheese gives eggplant Parmigiano Reggiano its distinctive flavor. If you don’t have time to make a homemade Simple Tomato Sauce, use a store-bought tomato sauce. The difference between one eggplant Parmigiano Reggiano recipe and another is in how the eggplant is prepared. In this recipe, the eggplant slices are dipped in flour, egg and breadcrumbs before being fried in olive oil. You can lighten this eggplant Parmigiano Reggiano recipe by baking the breaded eggplant slices in a 375°F oven on an oiled baking sheet for 25 minutes instead of frying them.

Ingredients:

4 oz. Parmigiano Reggiano (wedge)

1/2 cup Pecan (toasted and salted)

1/4 cup Pepitas (green pumpkin seeds), toasted

1/4 cup Cranberries (dried)

1/4 cup Dates (pitted)

1/4 cup Cereal (sweetened whole-grain O-shaped)

Look for the seal of authenticity.

Parmigiano Reggiano Stuffed Mushrooms

Directions:

STEP 1

Preheat the oven to 375° F. Clean the mushrooms and remove the stems. Use a melon baller to remove most of the gills from the mushrooms and to hollow out each mushroom a little. (Save the stems and mushroom leftovers for another use or chop them fine and mix them into the sausage filling.)

STEP 2

Put the sausage in a large bowl, add the onion, seasonings, the egg, 1/2 cup Parmigiano Reggiano, breadcrumbs and parsley. Mix with your hands until well combined.

STEP 3

Fill the mushrooms with a generous scoop of the sausage mixture, piling it high in each mushroom. You can refrigerate the mushrooms until ready for baking.

STEP 4

Put the mushrooms on a greased baking tray, spray lightly with olive oil spray and bake for 20 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining Parmigiano Reggiano over the mushrooms and bake 10 minutes longer. Serve hot.
