    Cut the mozzarella into thick slices. Stack the ham, use a cookie cutter to press into rounds, and set aside. Add ground hazelnuts and breadcrumbs to a deep plate and mix well. Crack the eggs into another deep plate, season with salt, and whisk well. Add flour to a third deep plate. Season eggplant slices with salt. Place two rounds of ham on top of half the eggplant slices, followed by a slice of mozzarella. Place remaining eggplant slices on top.
