Delicious Garden Fresh Eggplant
Hopefully you remember my coworker U, who so graciously brought me home grown tomatoes. Well, a few days ago she brought me an eggplant from her garden.
I’ve never actually made anything with eggplant, so I decided to make my Mom’s recipe, which I love. The recipe calls for the following ingredients:
2. Vegetable oil (for frying)
4. Garlic (mashed)
5. Tomato slices
6. 1 hard boiled egg
7. Shredded cheese (I used low moisture mozzarella)
Slice the eggplant, fry in vegetable oil until the slices soften. Remove onto a paper towel lined plate. Cover the fried eggplant slices with another paper towel to soak up the excess oil. In the meantime mash two cloves of garlic with a garlic masher and mix with a table spoon of mayonnaise. Brush each eggplant slice with the mayonnaise mixture, cover with a tomato slice. Brush each slice of tomato with the remaining mayonnaise mixture. Top with grated egg and shredded cheese. Chill slightly and serve. Yum!
