New way to oven fry eggplant?

This may be old hat to most people, but I just figured out a new way to oven fry eggplant. All the recipes I had read for that technique had you flour, egg wash, bread crumb slices and then put onto greased cookie sheet, drizzle with oil and bake at 450 turning once after about 10 minutes. Well, I processed fresh bread cubes and Parmigiano until it formed crumbs, seasoned with salt and pepper and then drizzled in enough olive oil to make oily crumbs. Then I did flour, egg wash and ended with nice coating of the oily crumbs. Quickly laid them on a cookie sheet that I'd heated in the 450 oven and put back in, turning once at about 8 minutes. Came out crunchy and perfect with no sticking and no burning. Maybe an old method to some, but new and great to me.
