Eggplant (Aubergine) and Feta Casserole

"This is a new favorite of mine. I was blown away by the wonderful flavors. I'm not a vegetarian but didn't miss meat with this. The onions turn out still crunchy, which I liked but if you don't you might try sautéing them in a little oil first."

Ready In:




  • Heat oven to 300°F; spray oil a casserole dish (I used a low oval one).
  • Spray oil a large frying pan and heat over high heat. Place eggplant slices in a single layer (you may have to do 2 batches). Cook for 3-5 minutes each side until browned. Place in prepared casserole dish evenly across the bottom (some may overlap).
  • Pour stewed tomatoes over eggplant in an even layer, then feta, parsley and cilantro (in that order).
  • In a small bowl, combine eggs, onion, salt, pepper, allspice, oregano, sage and cayenne. Pour evenly over items in casserole dish.
  • Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover and bake for another 10-20 minutes until firm.
  • Serve hot or cold.

  1. Although I didn't add the cilantro this time, I felt this was a great GF dish. I "fried" the eggplant in the oven at 450 degrees after spritzing the slices with oil and putting them on parchement paper. If you cook the casserole covered for more time (I did 40 minutes), then the onions are not crunchy.
  2. This was really good! I am not a fan of cilantro so I omitted and I used a can of crushed tomatoes, everything else I kept the same and it was awesome. I did think it was a little heavy on the onion but it was still great. Thanks for posting!
  3. Loved the mix of flavors and a wonderful way to use the frozen, breaded eggplant slices I already have in my freezer! I also precooked the onions a bit first. Even using petite diced canned tomatoes, it was wonderful! Will definately make again!
  4. Pretty tasty way to make eggplant! I loved all the fresh herbs and spices. It reminds me a lot of a frittata with the egg baking on top. Very light and fresh! I added a jalapeno to spice it up and my boyfriend loved it! It did take awhile to get the egg mixture to set...probably at least an hour.
  5. Deliscious dish, only a little moisty for me, left in the oven almost one hour. Thank you for post.


I'm not as active here anymore, but you can find me playing at the new I'm not a great photographer, but I love to take food photos with Freddy Cat to bring a smile to people's day. I love to cook and share good food with other people. I have a very large collection of cookbooks. I used to enjoy being able to look up recipes on Zaar by ingredients I had on hand. I miss the Zaar tag game community. Everyone was so nice, and it was super fun. Ah, the good ol' days.
