  1. Heat the oven to 350 F.

  3. Meanwhile, peel the eggplant and cut into 1/4-inch thick slices; brush each slice with lemon juice to prevent discoloration.
  4. In a bowl, beat egg slightly; whisk in milk and 1 tablespoon oil.

  7. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil.
  8. Fry eggplant slices, turning to brown both sides, adding more oil as needed, until golden brown.

  10. In a 2-quart baking dish, layer sauce, browned eggplant, and mozzarella, topping layers off with Parmesan cheese.
  11. Bake for 30 minutes.
