I like these eggplants stuffed with ground beef, cheese and veggies. I just love the flavors produced by that combination. I cannot wait to make this actually. I like eggplants that's why I don't have a problem with this recipe. Perfect for any meal of the day.

I love it. And the individual "boats" are enticing to the fussiest kid.

Made with turkey burger and enjoyed very much. I did add a little more garlic.

I make a rendition of this often in the fall, when it's cool enough to put the oven on. It is outstanding!! I eliminate BUTTER, you have a little dripping from the ground beef to saute with! I also set my oven to 325, instead of 350....that's too fast for me! What a gr8 way to enjoy eggplant in a low cal way!!
