I make this casserole with both sliced and mashed eggplant, depending on what mood I'm in. Both are delicious!

I got this recipe from the Cookin' Cajun Cooking School in New Orleans. Not being a big fan of eggplant, this was a delightful surprise. It's really good.


Fried Eggplant Fingers
1 eggplant
salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
Tabasco to taste
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Cut the eggplant into sticks, about 3"x1/2"x1/2", about the size of a finger.Salt eggplant fingers and let sit in colander for 20 minutes. Rinse and dry well. Mix together eggs, milk and Tabasco and set aside. Mix flour, white pepper and black pepper. Dip fingers into flour mixture, then into egg mixture and then into bread crumbs. Deep fry slowly on both sides, just till golden. Drain on paper towels.

Gusteau’s Ratatouille

1 large eggplant, cubed
1/4 to 1/3 cup olive oil

1 onion, thinly sliced

1 chopped pepper (red or green)

2 to 4 crushed garlic cloves

4 small zucchini, chopped

4 tomatoes, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

1/3 cup chopped fresh basil

Parmesan cheese

Salt the eggplant, drain in a colander for 1 hour, and pat dry. Heat half of the oil in a large saucepan and briefly saute the eggplant until brown, then add the onion and pepper. Next, add the garlic, zucchini, and tomatoes. Cook until a soft stew has formed, about 15 to 30 minutes.  

Serve over rice in a bowl or on a plate

Add the salt, pepper, and basil. Sprinkle with the cheese and serve. You can freeze leftovers.

Nothing.  We don't like eggplant.  I made ratatouille once with egglplant but it didn't go over too well.
