My husband and I grow lots of veggies in the summer and last year we had an abundance of eggplant. I was trying to figure out different ways to make them. Here is one version that we came up with.

How to Make Stuffed Eggplant


  1. Cut eggplant in half lengthwise and scoop out the pulp, you will want to leave a 1/4 inch thick shell. Set the shell aside. Chop the pulp and place it in a colander over a plate. Sprinkle with salt and let stand for 30 minutes. Blot moisture with a paper towel.
  2. In a skillet saute eggplant pulp and onion in butter until tender. Add the bread crumbs, mushrooms, parsley and pepper. Spoon into eggplant shells.
  3. Place in a greased baking dish. Bake uncovered at 350° fpr 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
  4. Special Note: You can change this up in different ways. I have used browned pork, added black beans, tomatoes and added cumin to the mix and changed the cheese to whatever I had on hand. Use your imagination and have fun.
