Line broiler pan with aluminum foil and brush or spray with olive oil. Heat pan while preparing egg plant. Peel egg plant and slice 1/4" thick.
Beat 1 egg well, add 1 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. each of: salt, black pepper, garlic powder, oregano and basil; and beat again. Slip slices into egg mixture and then cracker or bread crumbs turning to coat both sides. Put slices on broiler pan and roast until golden brown, turn and brown other side.
If breading becomes dry, remove broiler pan from oven and spray eggplant lightly with olive oil spray; return to broiler.
"Broil" is usually the highest setting of your oven, and normally the top rack is used, just under the element or burner. Some stoves may have a special drawer for broiling; while this is helpful, it isn't required for this recipe.
While broiling, you should not walk away because the eggplant will easily burn. Watch carefully.
