Eggplant casserole recipes (mission to save eggplants)

October 15th, 2007


My parents farm and they sometimes give me more produce than I can cook. I tried to give back the eggplants, but they said they had plenty. My husband doesn’t like eggplant and he claims he won’t eat an eggplant casserole.

Does anyone have an irresistible recipe that hopefully does not involve frying? I don’t like to fry, but I will if I have to. I feel bad because I’ve let the last couple eggplants they gave me go to waste.

We did try frying eggplant slices with fried onions and cheese on top. Yeah, very healthy, but he did eat some of it. This may be hopeless, but if the recipe is good, I’ll eat it at least! Thanks.

    Hmmm, we are not eggplant people, hon. My mother tells horror tales of her grandmother slicing up eggplant, frying it and putting it between two slices of bread for sandwiches and calling it lunch. “She ruined it forever, for me,” Mama says. My uncle won’t eat it either.

    The only time I’ve happily eaten eggplant was in a Greek restaurant in London back in 1978 when I was 14. It was in the moussaka. I found a couple of versions of moussaka that look to be about right. The first features lamb, the second beef.

    I found a recipe in someone’s blog for baba ganoush too. Just scroll down and you’ll find it. Although, the text is pretty interesting so you might want to read it as well.

    Thanks Virginia Lee. I didn’t have all the ingredients for the Greek dish and I remembered a recipe in an old church cookbook I have.

    It involved boiling the eggplants and mixing them with shredded cheddar and then mashing them. Combine that with bread crumbs and cream of mushroom soup and bake. It was good.
