Maybe because I didn't use fresh breadcrumbs? I don't know, but this turned out to be the worst recipe I've made in a while. The flavor was bad and the texture mushy and it was impossible to stuff the eggplant skins.

In this Italian stuffed eggplant recipe, fresh breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese and parsley make a simple, yet delicious filling for an “inside-out” eggplant Parmesan. Serve these stuffed eggplants as a light dinner along with a big salad.
