In a shallow dish, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and oregano; mix well. Place flour in another shallow dish and place eggs in a third shallow dish.
Dip eggplant slices in flour, then eggs, then bread crumb mixture, coating completely with each. Arrange eggplant in a single layer on baking sheets. Lightly coat tops of eggplant with cooking spray.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden.
Spoon spaghetti sauce evenly over eggplant slices, then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 5 to 7 additional minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
