    twissis's Note:

    This dish is being posted for ZWT. I'm fond of eggplant & lamb, so I was esp pleased to find this on the net & not find this particular version here on RZ. I was also more than just a little surprised to see cheddar cheese as an ingredient rather than the more to be expected feta cheese. The recipe source is Greek-Recipe.com, who acknowledged Bitsyskitchen.com. (PLS NOTE: As originally written, this recipe directs you to boil the eggplant. I had never heard of doing that & neither had my expert source, so I amended the eggplant cooking method as detailed.)

      We love this! Made 3 changes to the original. Used a full 8 oz can of tomato sauce, sub in roasted red peppers for green bell, and use wild rice instead of the bread. My 13 yr old DD says this is her favorite meal!

      This is one of two eggplant casseroles (the other one is Lightly Toasted's Eggplant (Aubergine) Fit for a Sheik (Sheik Al Mihshee)) that I've tried on 'Zaar and really love. I just finished reviewing that one and realized I'd never rated this one, nor thanked you for sharing the recipe! Like other reviewers, I used 8 ounces of tomato sauce and 4 slices of bread, and a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg. I've made a note to try this with summer squash as well. Both I and my dear partner really enjoyed this!

      This was a fantastic hit here, well-loved all around. We increased the tomato sauce and bread as another reviewer mentioned. Thanks for sharing. We raise sheep and are always on the lookout for a new lamb recipe. We have definitely found a keeper in this one.
