"I enjoyed this recipe, but I did add a few ingredients. Instead of topping the ingredients separate I mixed them together in a bowl and added two green onions, garlic powder, and olive oil. I then topped the egg plant with the mixture. Before putting in the oven I added salt and pepper. I would turn your broiler on the low setting and watch carefully.

My man and I really enjoyed this."
