Eggplant (Aubergine) and Cheese Casserole

When I first made this, my husband and kids ate it right up. They had no idea it was eggplant. It's a nice change-of-pace side dish.

I love eggplant so i tried this recipe and all i can say is WOW!!! My family loved it so much that ask me to make these again ASAP! I use 1/2k of eggplant, 2 slices of bread. I think the mixture is too little for a 9x9 dish. The recipe needs to be doubled to have thickeness. I didn't cover mine,but they turned out great. Bake for only 20min. Thanks for sharing!! Ü UPDATE: used 1 1/4k of eggplant this time,doubled the rest of the ingredients and they fit perfectly well in 9x9 pan (enough thickness) baked 30min w/out covering w/ foil. This recipe is definitely to be baked again and again

I made this with 3 baby eggplants and it was very good. I'm not a huge fan of Eggplant, but it's so pretty in the store so I just had to buy some and try this out. I will definitely make it again! thanks!

Okay, mine doesn't look like the picture and it tastes gross. sorry, if not for the croutons, it would be inedable. I read that somebody doubled all the ingredients, maybe that would help. Will try to add more to it tomorrow to see if it improves. Sorry...
