    Annz Recipez's Note:

    I made this up when I had an abundance of fresh garden veggies I needed to use up one night. My sister had given me some white eggplant and told me it was good for stuffing, so I threw some things together and it turned out wonderful! If you want meat, you can add ground beef or sausage or even chopped leftover meat. Sometimes I cover them with foil and freeze, then when I need a quick meal for myself, I take one out, remove the foil, microwave and voila! I have a quick, yummy, and healthy individual meal.

    Serves: 2

    Yield:

    stuffed ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut the eggplant in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh in the center until you have just a shell about 1/2-inch thick. Set the shells aside.
    2. 2
      Chop up the eggplant you scooped out into small pieces.
    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a frying pan, then add the chopped eggplant, onion, garlic, and pepper.
    4. 4
      Saute until the onion is clear and soft and the eggplant is cooked through.
    5. 5
      Add the tomato and basil or fresh herbs saute a few minutes longer.
    6. 6
      Add the breadcrumbs and about 1/2 cup of the cheese and stir well. The mixture should hold together well. If not, add a few more breadcrumbs and/or cheese.
    7. 7
      Scoop the stuffing mixture into the eggplant shells. Sprinkle with cheese.
    8. 8
      Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 - 25 minutes or until the cheese on top is melted.

      I also used the purple eggplants as there's no white ones here. Then I diced and salted them out to remove the bitter taste by soaking them in salt water for a few minutes. After rinsing them thoroughly (about 3x), I followed the rest of the directions. It was so good, that first thing DH uttered after he tasted it was "moussaka." Yeah, it does taste like moussaka and a delicious one at that too. DH even said I made so little..I guess I should have mad e more. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It's healthy, looks pretty and tastes wonderful. Made for Fall PAC 2008.

      I had to make some substitutions, such as a purple eggplant due to non-availability of a white one, but it turned out to be an easy healthy meal.
