Ingredients

1 teaspoon olive oil for brushing

2 eggs

2 tablespoons water

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs

salt and ground black pepper to taste

2 large eggplants, peeled and sliced into 1/2-inch rounds

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound ground beef

48 ounces chunky tomato sauce (such as Prego®)

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Steps

1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Oil 2 baking sheets and a 9x13-inch baking dish with 1 teaspoon olive oil.

2Whisk eggs and water together in a shallow dish. Combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, salt, and ground black pepper in a separate shallow dish.

3Dip eggplant slices into egg mixture, then press each gently into bread crumb mixture. Gently tap off any excess crumbs. Arrange slices on the prepared baking sheets.

4Bake eggplant slices in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Flip eggplant and bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes.

5Remove eggplant from the oven and increase temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

6Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and stir in ground beef. Season beef with salt and ground black pepper. Cook and stir until beef is browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease. Stir tomato sauce into ground beef; bring to a simmer and set sauce aside.

7Place 1/3 of the eggplant slices on bottom of the dish. Pour 1/3 of tomato sauce with ground beef on top of eggplant layer. Sprinkle 1/3 of mozzarella cheese on top of sauce layer. Repeat 2 more times, finishing with a layer of mozzarella cheese.

8Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before slicing.
