Ingredients

  • 8 cups (2 quarts) prepared tomato soup
  • 1 Parmesan rind
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups Italian-style breadcrumbs
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 medium eggplant, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 8 slices whole milk mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, cut into chiffonade

Method

Step 1

Put the soup in a medium pot, add in the Parmesan rind and bring to a slight simmer.

Step 2

Set up a standard breading station with the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in separate shallow bowls. Lightly season each station with salt and pepper. In batches and using a spider or slotted spoon, dredge each eggplant cube in flour and shake off the excess; dip in egg and let the excess drip off; and then coat in breadcrumbs. Set aside on a wire rack.

Step 3

Heat 1/2 inch of oil in 2 large straight-sided saute pans over medium heat. Working in small batches, fry the eggplant pieces, turning once, until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes a side.

Step 4

Preheat the oven to broil. Ladle the soup into individual ovenproof crocks on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover each crock with 2 slices of mozzarella. Broil until golden brown and bubbly. Top each crock with several fried eggplant cubes and some basil chiffonade.
