Dry the eggplant with a paper towel. Dip in egg. Lightly coat with the breading. Place on the baking sheet. Bake in the center of the oven for up to 20 min or possibly till lightly brown, soft centered; crisp crust.

Place a slice of still hot eggplant on the lettuce, off centered; top with a slice of mozzarella, then a slice of tomato - fan the slices. Repeat. Serve the onion, avocado, cucumber, olives and oranges along side (on the lettuce). Sprinkle with chopped garlic. Let people add in their own vinaigrette. Serve with warmed bread.
