Eggplant Obsessions

I'm not sure what happened to me when I was in the womb or shortly thereafter, but I have an eggplant problem.  I think about eggplant parmesan all the time.  I think about making it and I think about eating it.  I think about it standalone and I think about it as a sandwich.  Help me.

Today I went to Parm, a delightful shop that serves some classic "red sauce" Italian staples, including the major parms (chicken, meatball, and, of course, eggplant).  I ordered their eggplant on a roll and ran to a park, making sure no one was following me.

It was a very good eggplant parm.  The roll was sturdy yet soft and withheld the sauces from the eggplant.  The eggplant had no discernible bitterness and was tender.  I can't tell if the eggplant was fried much.  There was indeed some breading, but it could have been baked.

Oh please help me I want some more eggplant parmesan.
