The other night Chris cooked stuffed eggplant for dinner. We had a Costco mix salad on the side (some new one with Brussels sprouts, kale, etc.).
Basic Stuffed Eggplant
1 T butter
1/2 white onion, chopped
4-5 large white mushrooms, chopped
salt and pepper
1/4 cup fine bread crumbs
Cut the egg plant in half and hollow it out. Chop up the insides of the eggplant. In a pan, heat the butter. Add the onion, mushrooms, eggplant insides and spices to taste. Cook until tender. Toss in the bread crumbs and cook for about a minute.
Put the eggplant halves on a parchment lined pan, and fill with the mixture.
Bake for 15 minutes at 350 F. Top with cheese and then bake or broil just to melt/brown the cheese.
You could easily jazz this recipe up with a protein of choice. Next time we are having it with shrimp!
What are you up to this weekend?
Are you going out to any Halloween/costume parties?
