Ah, the tender, crusted goodness of fresh bread crumbs, egg base coated with flour gives us delicious parmigiana. This dish is the perfect go-to when you are craving something breaded. The question is, which is better? Its obvious one is healthier than the other, but when it comes down to taste, which is better?  The breading procedure is standard for both recipes, so that can’t be making much of a difference. What makes one better than the other?

Eggplant Parmagiana 

Our Bricco Salumeria Eggplant Parmagiana is made up of eggplant, sauce, provolone, and romano. The fried eggplant slices that are then drenched into a bed of the perfect balance of tomato sauce, covered in melted provolone and romano cheese. For a meatless option, it checks all the boxes for a delicious, meatless, and comforting sandwich.  You might think that eggplant is the cleaner/lighter option, but eggplant normally has more oil loaded into it. The eggplant becomes a sponge and soaks up all the oil when it’s fried, but it still takes on all the delicious parmigiana flavors. 

Chicken Parmagiana

When you order Chicken Parmagiana, you are served a meaty chicken cutlet, sauce, and slices of provolone, and romano cheese. When Chicken parmigiana is on the menu, it’s hard to choose anything else. It can be such a process when you make it home, so when you leave it to the professionals! To get the ultimate flavor, our chefs balance a perfect sauce to cheese chicken ratio. 

So this decision is solely based on preference. What do you like more? The crispy crunch from a cutlet or nutrients from the eggplant. Some people might notice the difference not only in texture but taste. However, whether you’re pairing it with your favorite pasta or your favorite bread, the options are endless; the breaded texture and cheese are sure to be a superstar with any pairing.
