My rating is for the recipe after I doctored it up. Forgive me for fiddling with it, but I felt it needed some personal touches. First of all, I did not boil the onion with the eggplant, but rather caramelized it in a skillet I used chicken flavor stuffing mix and added in some Mrs. Dash to compensate I used 2 eggs (beaten until frothy before mixing with the rest of the ingredients) I also added a can of sliced mushrooms and about 2 Tbs. grated Parmesan. Not only did I top the casserole with the remaining 1 cup of shredded Cheddar, but I mixed some Panko bread crumbs with garlic powder, additional shredded Cheddar, and a little grated Parmesan. This was all mixed with some melted butter to top the casserole. I baked it in a 2 qt. souffl dish, so it took a bit longer to bake. I've got to say that after making the adjustments, the final result was phenomenal and was hearty enough to serve as a main course. I'll most definitely be making this again.

We love that you added your own personal touch! That's what cooking is all about. So glad to hear it worked for you. Next time you make this recipe, feel free to take a picture and share it with our Facebook community! https://www.facebook.com/MrFoodRecipes/

I'll be attempting this casserole sometime this week and am wondering if oven roasting the eggplant and onion instead of boiling them might be a better idea. The oven roasting should enhance the flavors, rather than boiling them out. What are your thoughts on this? I'm also going to add a can of sliced mushrooms to the casserole.

such a rich, satisfying dish. I added 2 lg eggs to puff the recipe a bit. I plan on adding 2 cups of cooked chicken to recipe for a one dish meal....sooo delicious with fried apples as a side.

Good tip whosyournana! I would like to eat more eggplant, but I only have the parmiagiana recipe, and I think a white sauce would be better than red for eggplant. I agree, fried apples! (There was a time when I was a single parent on a tight budget and I couldn't afford desserts, so I made my kids cooked apples and to this day, my daughter chooses cooked apples over other desserts! She loves cooked apples and so do her kids!)

Now that I look at the recipe again, you could substitute cream of chicken soup, cheddar cheese soup or broccoli cheddar cheese soup for different variations. And maybe add some fresh or canned tomotoes to the casserole too.

always looking for great recipes for eggplant and this one looks great and do-able

We have lots of eggplant this year -- would love more recipes & will definitely try this one -- have a similar one using yellow squash & it is great!

I boiled the eggplant, but did it in less water. This could also be steamed to soften. I used a whole box of chicken stuffing mix and increased the water double or more in the recipe. Just don't thin the mix out too much. It was a great way to use eggplant. Good recipe
