Questions & Replies

  1. Is the stuffing made prepared before adding to the casserole?
  2. Do you boil eggplant first before you mix all thing together


  1. I think this recipe is a bit misleading. You hardly notice the eggplant at all. It's more like a stuffing with vegetables. I added a little extra eggplant, but it was still masked by the stuffing. I always use recipe #278160 for the cream soups, so I used the mushroom version. This would be great to disguise eggplant for those who don't care for it. Thanx for sharing.
  2. This was AWESOME. Even the leftovers were good. I only used a 2 oz. jar of pimientos and that was plenty. I also waited to put the cheese on until 30 minutes into the baking time. Next time I might try mixing 1/2 of the cheese into the casserole and putting the other 1/2 on top.
  3. Loved the recipe . I added smoked Boneless skinless chicken thighs and red pepper flakes it was very good I will make it again
  4. This was really good and I will certainly make it again. Next time, I will take some of the suggestions posted here such as adding mushrooms. The stuffing was a bit overpowering at first, but when I had it as left overs, it wasn't bad at all. I may also add some protein next time, such as turkey to make it more of a meal.
  5. I just made this recipe because of my husband's buying 2 eggplants that I had no idea what to do with.I used sweet red pepper rather than the green.I didn't have pimentos. I mixed the cheese in with the casserole and it came out fantastic! I doubled the recipe and sent some home with the tutor, gave some to our neighbors and by lunchtime, it's almost gone. I did add more eggplant than called for and peeled it first (very important). I will make this again.


  1. I live in New Orleans and am going to fix with shrimp and crabmeat added. I will let you know how it turns out.
  2. It was delicious!! The only changes I made was added red chili pepper flakes, halved the cheese and butter (for dietary purposes), and fresh mint for some flavour! Turned out fabulous and pretty healthy!
  3. Delicious recipe using fresh eggplant from my garden. I use Broccoli Cheese soup instead of mushroom and add half a can of milk instead of the pimentos. I also use home made croutons from left over bread instead of the stuffing mix. Absolutely yummy, and my husband often asks me to make it. I sometimes let it cool, cut it into 6 pieces, freeze individually and take to work for a quick and easy lunch.
