This is my version of a beef-eggplant-tomato-cheese casserole I’ve been making for years. My newer version is made with non-meat crumbles (Boca or Morningstar Farms shown here, or use ground turkey) and reduced-fat Cheddar cheese. The “meat” is sauteed in a little olive oil with some chopped onion and garlic, then a little salt, pepper, a spoonful of flour, and oregano are added. After this is cooked for a couple of minutes, put it in a 10×10 casserole dish, top with eggplant slices that have been boiled to fork-tender, sliced fresh tomatoes, and a cup or more of the shredded cheese. Bake 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Nice with a side salad. Those lucky enough not to have to watch their weight might add some crusty Italian or French bread.

FEATURED in The Luscious Food House, July 8, 2012

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Looks good Dot.

  • Thanks, Rosie. Fortunately my hubby likes it, too. I tried it with fat-free cheese, but it is a little too “chewy” after it’s cooked. I’ll stick to reduced-fat next time.
