Eggplant Mozzarella

We recently bought eggplant at a local farm 3 for $1! I was so excited to make one of my favorite dishes... eggplant mozzarella. Our family loves this dish. It is super easy to make.

Eggplant Mozzarella

1 medium eggplant
1 egg
bread crumbs
vegetable oil
pasta sauce
fresh mozzarella

Peel (optional) and slice eggplant. Dredge in flour. Dip in egg. Roll in bread crumbs. Fry in oil until golden on both sides. Place in casserole dish and put sliced cheese on top. Cover with
pasta sauce. Bake on 350 degrees until cheese is melted.

Served with whole wheat pasta ($.34).

Side salad of vidalia onions, tomatoes ($.59/ lb picked), and cucumbers (from our garden)

After purchasing all the items on sale with coupons, buying eggplant for $.33, and making your own very inexpensive pasta sauce... this meal cost approx. $2.50. Plus, we ate the leftovers for lunch the next day. $1.25/ meal
