My mother made this on occassion as a pleasant alternative to breaded eggplant. Back in the 1960's when I was growing up in Pennsylvania Dutch country...this was rather a "gourmet" vegetable recipe! I've added a few of my own special touches to this recipe to make it more up-to-date.

How to Make Stuffed Eggplant Italiano

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Cut eggplant in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out flesh, reserving shell. Coarsely chop scooped out eggplant into bite size pieces.
  2. Place a 12" non-stick skillet over medium high heat and saute eggplant, green pepper and onion in olive oil for 10-12 minutes, or until onion becomes transparent. (You may have to add more olive oil or vegetable oil while sauteeing.)
  3. Add the tomatoes and garlic to the eggplant mixture and stir to combine. Add the beaten egg, torn bread and Italian seasoning to the skillet and stir quickly to combine ingredients and to prevent the egg from "scrambling". Add salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook for 5 more minutes, stirring condstantly.
  4. Transfer mixture to reserved eggplant shells and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place stuffed shells in a baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Serves 6-8 (depending on size of eggplant)
