Im making eggplant napoleons & want to cut down my prep time when I make it tomorrow.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I would not cut it a whole day in advance. A few hours at most. Eggplant will oxidize and turn brown if cut too far in advance. If presentation is not an issue, then cut away.
I cut it last to avoid the browning.
