Fried Eggplant With Prosciutto and Mozzarella – Recipe 🇮🇹

These fried eggplant slices make a delicious appetizer or dinner!

I love fried eggplant soooo much! The other day while making stuffed fried zucchini flowers, I decided to try adding the ingredients to eggplant and breading them. I sliced the eggplant into discs, put a piece of mozzarella on top of each and wrapped a piece of prosciutto around like a perfect little package. I breaded and fried them and OMG they are amazing! These could definitely be served as a meal with salad, they are quite filling! I hope you enjoy my new favorite treat!


  • 1 eggplant, sliced into 1/2 inch thick discs
  • Fresh mozzarella sliced into 1/4-1/2 inch discs
  • 1/4 lb Prosciutto
  • 2 cups AP flour
  • 4 eggs, beaten with 1 spoonful of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs (I seasoned mine with red pepper flakes and oregano)
  • Sea salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Heat up vegetable oil in a deep frying pan or dutch oven.
  2. Create your breading station. From left to right it should be flour, eggs, breadcrumbs.
  3. Assemble your eggplant by placing a slice of mozzarella on top of the eggplant disc and wrapping a piece of prosciutto around (see above photo).
  4. Coat eggplant completely in flour, submerge in egg mixture and then coat completely in breadcrumbs.
  5. When oil is hot enough (medium heat), place 1-2 eggplant slices in at a time and fry until golden brown on each side. 
  6. Salt while hot and serve.
