You salt the slices til they drain— DrLith, the Good Chaos (@drlith) September 8, 2019
Their bitterness, like tears of pain,
You dredge with flour, then dip in egg then bread crumbs
Arrange in pan and bake till brown
Then spread the sauce on every round
And sprinkle with the parmesan reggiano
You dip in egg, and crumbs of bread— S (@vidiot_) September 8, 2019
Place on a sheet, and then you spread
The whole shebang with the marinara.
Don't forget to salt it, if you please
The end is when you sprinkle cheese
And that's how you make eggplant parmigiana.

I heard there was a tasty pan— Matthew Olwell (@mattolwell) September 9, 2019
Of eggplant, sauce, and parmesan
But uh-oh, you say you're a vegan, do ya?
Well, that's ok, cause there more for me
And garlic, it will set you free
And the Navy boys, they still are singing hooyah
