Eggplant from Jon's Garden

Eggplant is something I very seldom eat or cook, and I had half a dozen beautiful little ones given to me by my son, Jon this week.
So I searched my collection of cookbooks to find a recipe. I had thought I'd make Moussaka, but we had been eating hamburg this week already, and I wanted to make something simple with it.
This was called "Eggplant 'a la Grecque" in an old cookbook which was part of my mom's collection. It is a delicious side dish!
