Eggplant parmesan is a classic casserole dish in the United States. In this recipe, the bread crumbs used are Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, and any seasoned or Italian flavored brand from the store will work.
The oil used to fry and prepare the eggplant for the casserole is grapeseed oil. There are many other oils that have high smoke points depending on your budget.
I am so thankful for our access to local, farm fresh produce in the Boston area. If you can’t make it to the farmer’s market, consider a local area CSA or pickup for great deals.
