This recipe is so easy and with all the fresh eggplant and tomatoes from the garden is very low cost. Even my 24-year old son loves it even if it is a meatless dish.
Peel and slice eggplant. Cook in 1 inch boiling salted water about 10 minutes or until tender. Mash the eggplant and mix with butter, eggs, pepper, onion, oregano, and cracker crumbs.
This was frugal for me because I grew the carrots and eggplant. I got the tomato sauce for free with coupons, and had the other ingredients. It was healthy and tasty, and I will vary the cheeses and sauces I use depending on what's available. I may try it with just flavored bread crumbs.
Starting with the eggplant, cut into 1/4-in slices. Place plate and sprinkle with salt. Set aside for 15 minutes.
Great veggie recipe!
