Panini Fritti

2 medium eggplants
½ lb smoked mozzarella
1 tbsp dried oregano
3 eggs beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
1 bunch dandelion greens, ends trimmed, rinse and pat dry
½ cup flour
olive oil for frying
Preheat oven to 425 degrees

In bowl, beat the eggs. Place flour on small plate, the bread crumbs on another small plate. Begin heating the olive oil in a saute pan ( about a 1/4 inch ). Dip the eggplant slices in the flour, then the beaten egg, then coat completely with the bread crumbs. Place in saute pan, cooking on each side until golden brown. On baking sheet place one slice of eggplant. Sprinkle with dried oregano, layer with cheese and dandelion greens. Top with one more layer of cheese and another slice of eggplant. Repeat until you have used all of the eggplant slices. Place in oven and bake 5-7 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve with mixed green salad if desired.
