A chance to sneak in a particular vegetable that some 'think' they don't like. My DH says he doesn't like it (eggplant) but yet when I make this he fights with the kids on who gets seconds (guess I should just make 2 batches ;) Just don't mention that it has eggplant in it and see if anyone notices.
- 1 eggplant, medium to large, peeled and sliced thin
- 1 large onion, thinly sliced
- 8 -10 russet potatoes, thinly sliced
- 4 tablespoons butter or 4 tablespoons margarine
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 5 cups milk
- 4 cups cheese, I used 1 pkg Kraft Tex Mex pre-shredded
- 2 cups parmesan cheese, I used 1 pkg Kraft pre-shredded
- 1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
- 1 tablespoon pepper (to taste)
- 4 tablespoons garlic powder (to taste)
- In a pot melt butter/margarine over low heat.
- Add flour and stir for a few minutes to cook out the 'flour taste'.
- Turn heat to medium and slowly whisk in milk and seasoning.
- Heat and stir till sauce starts to thicken, then stir in cheese.
- Cook until cheese is melted.
- Pour a small amount of sauce in the bottom of your greased casserole dish.
- Layer in order potatoes,onions,eggplant,sauce,onions,potatoes.
- Cover with sauce and top with parmesan cheese.
- Cover and bake at 350 for an hour or so.
- Remove cover and bake until golden brown on top.
- For those of you that have read my other recipes, you know that I'm not big on measurements. With that being said, the sauce is equal parts butter to flour and enough milk to have a thick cream soup consistency. (I didn't really measure -- I go by 'eyeballing' it).
- Cool and ENJOY.
