Reviews for Eggplant with Mushroom Stuffing
"This was way too salty to eat. Blotting the moisture didn't seem to help."
"This dish was pretty good. I also made it in a casserole, but used mozzarella cheese because that's what I had on hand. Don't make the mistake I did and forget to blot the extra moisture from the eggplant after draining - it was way too salty. Next time I might add some chopped celery to the veg mixture to give it a little more crunch."
"easy enough for me and delicious!:)"
"This was delicious and my family loved it! I ended up just making in a small casserole dish and served as a side with chicken, but could easily be a vegetarian meal."
