Artichoke Eggplant Ring

I've saved recipes, from as far back as I can remember. This is a very old recipe (wish I could show you the pic), that I wanted to pass along to all the great cooks here.

Artichoke Eggplant Ring
2 small eggplants, peeled
5 eggs
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup fresh-grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup olive oil
2 pkg. (9 oz. each) frozen artichoke hearts
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped parsley
3 oz. prosciutto, or ham, chopped
2 1/2 cups tomato sauce
1/4 cup sour cream

Spray 6-7 cup ring mold with nonstick cooking spray. Cut eggplants lengthwise in 1/4" thick slices. Reserve 10 slices & coarsely chop remainder.

Beat 2 eggs in pie plate with fork until mixed; set aside. On waxed paper, combine 1/2 cup breadcrumbs with 1/4 cup cheese; dip eggplant slices into eggs, drain off excess, then into bread crumbs. Shake off excess; set aside.

Heat 2 tbl oil in skillet. Cook eggplant slices until golden on both sides. Arrange fried eggplant slices crosswise overlapping slightly in prepared mold so there are no gaps; set aside.
In skillet in remaining oil saute chopped eggplant until tender, about 5 mins; set aside. Cook artichoke hearts according to pkg, cut each heart in half; set aside.

Beat remaining eggs in bowl until mixed; add mayo, parsley, prosciutto, remaining bread crumbs & cheese, sauteed eggplant, artichokes & 1/4 tsp pepper; stir until well mixed. Spoon mixture into eggplant-lined mold, patting down firmly with hand. Place mold in small roasting pan; set pan in oven. Pour enough boiling water into pan to come half up side of mold. Cover mold loosely with foil; bake 45 mins or until filling sets.

Combine tomato sauce (& sour cream opt) before serving. Heat briefly in saucepan to warm. Invert ring mold onto serving platter. Pass tomato sauce separately.

This looks even better (if it could get any better) than it sounds. It's a lovely presentation dish, & ingredients I really like. If you try it, would like to know how it turns out. Hmmm, thinking out loud, perhaps salsa instead of tomato/sour cream sauce could work too. :) So glad I have this forum to share the bestest with the bestest.
