1/1 Photo of Jalapeño and Cheese Topped Eggplant
The unknown chef's Note:
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.
