Eggplant for Gina

My bloggy friend Gina was asking on Facebook today for eggplant recipes. I get the impression that she wants something a little healthier than my super-cheesy Eggplant Parmesan, so here is a yummy recipe that I got at a kitchen shower back when I got married. The lady who gave it to me put on a note on here telling me that it came from a church cookbook in Virginia Beach.

I didn't have any eggplant on hand, so there's no picture but here's the yummy recipe for...
Eggplant Casserole

3T olive oil
2 eggs
1 onion, chopped fine
1 lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/4 tsp. sage
1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
2 eggplants, sliced
2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup rye bread crumbs

1. Grease casserole dish with half of olive oil.
2. Mix eggs, onions, mushrooms, and seasoning together.
3. Alternate layers of eggplant, egg/onion mixture, and cheese, continuing in this manner until ending with cheese on top.
4. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

  1. Ooh this sounds yummy! I almost bought an eggplant yesterday, but passed as I didn't know what to do with it. Now I know! :) Thank you for sharing this with us! :)

    Wishing you a very blessed day!
