1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
2 Cups Marinara Sauce
8 Ounces Fresh Sliced Mozzarella
¼ Cup Chopped Fresh Basil

Salt & Pepper to Taste
Slice eggplants into 1/4 inch thick rounds. Lay out in a single layer on a paper towel-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Let sit 1 hour to release moisture. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease 1-2 large baking sheets. Set up three shallow dishes for dredging. In the first dish, mix together flour; add salt and pepper for taste. In the second dish, whisk eggs. In the third dish, stir together panko breadcrumbs, Italian breadcrumbs and garlic powder. Working one at a time, dredge eggplant slices in flour mixture, dip in egg mixture, and then coat in breadcrumb mixture. Place onto the prepared baking sheet in an even layer. Sprinkle on a light coating of Parmesan cheese. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, flipping eggplant slices halfway through. Spread marinara into the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 dish. Layer half of the eggplant slices onto the base. Top with remaining marinara then layer on all of the mozzarella slices. Sprinkle on half of the basil and half of the Parmesan cheese. Place remaining eggplant slices on top, and cover with remaining marinara, basil and Parmesan. Bake uncovered in the oven for 20-25 minutes until cheese is melted and the top is bubbling and lightly browned.
