Eggplant Tomato Pie

I originally found this recipe using cheddar cheese and plain breadcrumbs. I have switched it up using flavored breadcrumbs and Italian cheeses. I have also added the light breadcrumb layer on the bottom of the pan because the first time I made it it was too wet. The breadcrumbs helped absorb excess moisture.

I also slice my tomatoes in advance and let them drain.

The recipe in the picture is double.
