Eggplant a La Tammy Wynette

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Legna

I'm not sure where my Mom got this recipe, but I love it! It is my favorite way to make eggplant. I'm told this is a Tammy Wynette family recipe. The original recipe didn't give the amount of spices to use, so I guessed. You can use a little more/less according to your taste.

What a great recipe! I made this for our Easter dinner as a side dish. My DD has never been wild about eggplant, but she loved it as well as all of the eggplant lovers. I made two slight changes in that instead of crushed tomatoes I used chopped and the other alteration was to add more cheese then the recipe called for. This is true comfort food! Made for Spring 2014 PAC.
