Louisiana Mashed Eggplant Patties

Quick & easy. I serve with Tomato Mushroom Gravy which is posted with Baked Eggplant a La Ce Ce under my recipes. This is meatless. I serve with a salad. If you want, you may crush 3 precooked slices bacon to the mixture before forming patties. I also use Provalone cheese in place of cheddar once in awhile.

This recipe is a total mouth explosion of flavor! I thought I would share them with my family, but decided I would keep them all to myself. I did not put the recommended gravy on them, but rather ate them plain. I loved them so much, I even the left-overs cold right out of the refrigerator. Thanks for sharing such an awesome recipe. (I still don't plan on sharing!)
