A recipe my family grew up on that our mom made, simply ingredients and cooking. Great as a meal with sliced tomatoes or a side dish. **My mom would also slice bell peppers in half, remove seeds and rub a bit of oil on outside then mound this eggplant dressing inside, place stuffed bell pepper in 9 x 13 dish with a just enough water to cover bottom and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes to be served as a side dish. ***You can also just cook your eggplant down with the seasonings S,P Garlic Powder, onion and bell pepper. Cool then freeze in smaller packages with a good seal. When ready to use take out defrost add cooked meat and rice and heat thoroughly.
