    Made these last night with eggplant and chopped green peppers from the garden, subbed ground flaxseed and quinoa for some of the breadcrumbs. You can easily add more if the mixture is too runny. Definitely drain the eggplant after cooking down. <br/>I like made them into cylinder shapes - they are delicious with a bit of greek yogurt or sour cream on the side!

    Very good! DH and I have made this several times! The first time we made it, it fell apart and was a little bit runny. I credit this to not fully draining the eggplant. After this I put the cooked and chopped eggplant in a couple of paper towels (sounds weird, but no paper towel fibers stuck to the eggplant) and squeezed the water out. It had a much thicker consistency and was easier to work with. Wonderful!

    I forgot to buy basil on the night I was making this, and instead of the cheddar I used Emmental (because that is the kind of cheese you can buy shredded at the French supermarket). It was YUMMY! I made two big eggplant "omelets" instead of smaller croquettes and my eggplant-wary copain said it was delicious. Next time I make it, I might want to try adding chopped tomatoes to the mix.

    Just tried this 2 days ago. My bf raved how delish it was. Instead of putting the sharp cheddar in, though, all I had was an Italian blend cheese in the fridge. I didn't try to form into patties, just dumped a patty-size mound in the pan and it cooked very nicely that way. Just made sure the heat wasn't too high so it would brown nicely without losing its shape. Definately will be using this one again next season!
