Wyatt Cafeteria's Baked Eggplant (Aubergine)

Wyatt Cafeteria's Baked Eggplant (Aubergine) created by PaulaG

There was once a cafeteria in Texas called Wyatts Cafeteria. DH's family would go there after church on Sunday and his mother would get baked eggplant. For years she tried to copy the recipe and came very close. The original recipe was published in the local paper several years ago. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

    I want to make this but need to omit the eggs due to dietary restrictions. What can I use as a substitute for the eggs?

    I followed the recipe almost exactly, except I used red bell peppers instead of green. It tasted just like the Wyatt's original! Thanks.

    I used mozzarella and three cheese italian blend instead, plus three cloves chopped garlic and some green onion.

    This baked eggplant from Wyatt’s Cafeteria was my favorite dish. I want to get all the ingredients to make it but am having problem with the Sage. You say in the recipe to use dried sage but I am only able to find Rubbed Sage or Ground Sage. Would either of these work??????
