  • 1 jar of your favorite tomato sauce I used 3/4 of a jar
  • 1/2 bag of frozen breaded eggplant cutlets I used Trader Joes brand
  • 2 Tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
  • Chopped parsley or basil for garnish optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place about 1 tablespoon olive oil in cast iron skillet. Swirl around skillet to coat evenly.
  3. Add enough tomato sauce to coat the bottom of the pan.
  4. Spread the eggplant cutlets in the bottom of the pan in one layer. Use smaller eggplant pieces to fit in between larger ones.
  5. Pour tomato sauce over eggplant layer covering all pieces.
  6. Bake in oven for approximately 35 minutes until eggplant is tender and soft.
  7. Take skillet out of oven and add parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.
  8. Put skillet back in oven for about 20 minutes until cheese is slightly browned.
  9. Take skillet out of the oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Slice and serve.
  10. Note: it is even good at room temperature and makes great leftovers.
