Eggplant is another one of those foods I can't get enough of, yet somehow I always managed to forget how long they can take to prepare.
The second I saw this pin while searching for things I should be able to eat while "stuck" with gestational diabetes I knew it was for me. The link from the pin doesn't go directly where it should go but here is the page you should end up on.

olive oil for frying
freshly grated Asiago cheese or Parmigiano Reggiano (I used the stuff in a shaker because it was all we had at the time)
bread crumbs, about 1/2 cup, made from about 3 slices day-old bread I used panko
1 cup whole milk ricotta
grated zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves, minced
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1. Trim the stem end of each eggplant.
Place 3 to 4 eggplant
slices in the hot oil and cook until the slices take on some color, 3 to
