This recipe has been passed down through the family, starting with my grandmother, who learned it from her neighbor. It's a delightful way to prepare eggplant.

"This recipe always generates a lot of comments when I serve it. People who say they never liked eggplant before like this. I often sprinkle croutons on the individual servings."
