Eggplant Parm

1 eggplant, pealed and slice in 1/4 inch slices
bread crumbs
garlic, minced
parm cheese

After slicing the eggplant, sprinle salt onto both sides and let it sit for awhile, the longer the better. I like at least 1 hour. This removes that weird biter flavor if you buy the wrong sex of eggplant. I can never remember how to properly sex a eggplant. How dirty is that?

Rinse the eggplant slices well. Remove all the salt you can. Dip the eggplant into a beaten egg, then dip it into the breadcrumb/garlic. Shallow fry it in canola oil, 2 to 3 minutes a side. Remove from oil, put onto a paper towel, sprinkle with shredded parm. The eggplant is hot enough that it will naturally melt the parm cheese.
