10 oz sliced mushrooms

1 Tbsp Butter for mushrooms

2 Tbsp shredded onions


Directions:

  6. In a large skillet over medium to high heat add ⅓ cup of Avocado Oil.
  7. Take a bag of flour and place one eggplant disk and shake. Once well coated, remove from the bag and dip into egg mixture then place into a hot skillet. Continue to batter each eggplant until the skillet is full. Cook on both sides until brown.
  8. In a large casserole dish cover the bottom with tomato sauce. After the eggplant has been fried, remove and place in a casserole dish. Top each eggplant slice with a spoonful of tomato sauce, parmesan cheese and mushrooms. Repeat.
