I've never made it, or eaten it for that matter, but thanks to monday's "holiday" i'll be doing both...so I need some help.
Every single recipe I'm seeing says bread bake/fry eggplant, then sauce eggplant cheese layer & bake.
1) I have a mini deep fryer somewhere, so I'm trying to decide whether to bake or fry em to cook em. Anybody ever have it cooked both ways and can tell a difference? If not I'll probably bake em since it'll be easier and healthier.
2) I was reading some people salt the eggplant then rinse it off to get rid of some of the bitterness that eggplant apparently has (i have no idea, i've never eaten it.) i was thinking of using some garlic salt to add a little flavor to em.
3) For the breading, can I add powered parm to it or just leave it be?
