Jalapeño and Cheese Topped Eggplant

My family loves this stuff. It's a great way to use up eggplant from the garden, but don't let that stop you from picking some up from your local market. You will not be disappointed. The sour cream really makes this special, the same way it does on potato pancakes. I would like to thank James Craig for the basis for this recipe. Enjoy.

These were awesome!!!! I mixed a little bit of coconut milk with my mayo and jalapeno to thin it just a bit. Then I used panko crumbs instead of bread crumbs. Great recipe!!!!

WONDERFUL! I made this as stated and it was fantabulous. Five stars for flavor and ease. I just love eggplant and needed another simple way to cook it. Thanks for this tasty and nicely hot recipe. I didn't think it would be hot enough for our tastes, but it was just the right amount of jalapenos. Thanks,
