Peeled eggplant.

Peeled eggplant and sliced in 1/2 inch slices.

Another eggplant recipe created due to a bumper crop. I don’t mind the skin on the eggplant but MIL doesn’t care for it. So feel free to leave the skin on as it is good either way, and the skin adds more fiber to the meal.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons butter (plus minus)
  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 1/4 ranch salad dressing
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese

  • seasoned salt To taste

Directions:

  1. Peel eggplant and slice across wise forming circles about 1/2 inch thick but doesn’t have to be exact.
  2. Add butter to skillet on medium high heat and saute eggplant circles on both sides for 3 minutes per side.
  3. Microwave onion in microwaveable container for 3 minutes, stir and microwave another 3 minutes.
  4. Saute onions for 5 minutes on medium heat in skillet that was used for sautéed eggplant, then remove from heat.
