READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by twissis

This dish is being posted for ZWT. I'm fond of eggplant & lamb, so I was esp pleased to find this on the net & not find this particular version here on RZ. I was also more than just a little surprised to see cheddar cheese as an ingredient rather than the more to be expected feta cheese. The recipe source is Greek-Recipe.com, who acknowledged Bitsyskitchen.com. (PLS NOTE: As originally written, this recipe directs you to boil the eggplant. I had never heard of doing that & neither had my expert source, so I amended the eggplant cooking method as detailed.)

This is an awesome eggplant casserole. I used ground beef as the recipe allowed and the only other change I made was to add a few more mushrooms and a little extra tomato sauce. I absolutely love eggplant and I will definitely make this dish again -- going into my Best of 2016 file.
