Baked Eggplant Melt
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). In a shallow bowl, combine breadcrumbs, basil, Parmesan and salt. Place egg in a shallow bowl and dip eggplant slices, then coat each slice in the bread crumb mixture.
Place eggplant on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 15 min.
Transfer baked eggplant to a clean plate. Discard parchment and set toasted bun halves cut-side up on the tray. Pile the eggplant on one half the bun, spoon on sauce, and top with cheese. Place under the broiler for 2 min. until cheese is bubbling.
