    My mom's original recipe. Use your food processor not only to process the ham, but to chop the vegetables, too. Freezes well.

      This sure isn`t a pretty dish but it sure does taste pretty good! I sauteed the onions, peppers and garlic in in Pam sprayed pan. Used prosciutto in place of the ham. The eggplant i cooked in the microwave then finished in the pan with the onions. I did make half the recipe. Plated it on tomato sauce. Next time I would give a light layer of tomato sauce instead of the butter then top with grated cheese. Thanks!!!

      Double darn this is so good, I know you will be licking the casserole dish. I followed this exactly, except since I had some very fresh, and very small eggplants that were as tender as a baby flowers. So the change I made was not to peel the eggplant and mash it. It was just so good, and I wouldn't change one other thing. Your Mom is a winner and has a winner on her hands! Thank her for me, please? Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* tag. Septembre 2009.

      I adored this. I have never tried a recipe where the eggplant is peeled nor have I ever boiled eggplant so I was keen to give this a go. I used a large red onion and diced bacon instead of ham. I am very grateful to Peggy and Gail !! Made for Holiday Tag.
