Cover a baking sheet with towels. Cut eggplant into ¼” slices and add to the tray in a single layer. Sprinkle eggplant with 1 tbsp salt. Let eggplant sit for 30 minutes up to 2 hours to sweat. Dry thoroughly with towels by dabbing the eggplant and set aside.
Meanwhile heat the oven to 425F. Add panko to a baking sheet and cook until toasted and slightly golden- about 6 minutes. Add panko to a shallow bowl and toss with 1 Tbsp Misculgio.
In a shallot bowl beat together, eggs, truffle oil, and 1 tsp Black Truffle Sea Salt.
Dip eggplant into egg mixture, then panko and set in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake eggplant in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden.
In a bowl combine tomatoes, Miscuglio,1 tbsp Roasted Garlic Sea Salt, and Sweet Basil Balsamic Vinegar.
In a 9x9 baking dish assemble eggplant parmesan. Add ¼ of sauce to the bottom of the pan then layer eggplant, cutting pieces to fill gaps if needed. Add 1 cup of sauce, then layer with Mozzarella. Repeat by layering eggplant, sauce, and cheese. Top with ¼ cup parmesan.
