Baked Eggplant Parmesan Recipe – no mess, no fuss eggplant Parmesan with crispy garlic Parmesan breaded eggplant baked in the oven, not fried.
I already shared my favorite way to make eggplant in my Garlic Parmesan Baked Eggplant recipe. It’s super easy and the final result is a crispy and flavorful appetizer or side dish. It’s exactly what I use to make my Eggplant Parmesan. I try to avoid frying breaded vegetables, just leave it for chicken or pork schnitzel. Breaded veggies are perfect when baked in the oven.
This Baked Eggplant Parmesan is an easy vegetarian dish for meatless Monday or when you want something meat-free, yet delicious and easy to make. Baking the breaded eggplant in the oven makes this version a no-mess and no-fuss dish. It’s super tasty too! You are also reducing calories by half, since on average fried eggplant Parmesan is around 850 calories and this baked version has about 480 calories per serving.
