Eggplant Casserole (Kukuye Bademjan)

Posted in
Ingredients: 
4 medium egg plants
1/3 cup margarine
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic
3 tbsp. lemon juice
4 egg whites
4 egg yolks
2 tbsp. margarine
Directions: 

Serves: 4 people

Peel egg plants. Cut them lengthwise and rinse them. Drain the water well and sate them in a fry pan, in the margarine until golden brown. Let cool. Put the egg plants in a bowl and mash them well. (I use a simple potato masher.)

Beat the egg whites well, until foamy. Fold in egg yokes. Fold this mixture into the mashed egg plants. Melt the 2 tbsp. margarine in a 9" casserole or cake pan. Pour the egg plant mixture in the pan and bake it at 350 degrees for about 45 min. or until done. The top gets a nice brown color when done.

Serve it topped with a dollop of plain yogurt.
~As a variation grate some sharp cheddar cheese and add to egg plant mixture before poring into the pan and baking. (This is very good!)

~Enjoy~

Calphalon One Infused Anodized Fry Pan (purchase at Chefs Catalog) I use this pan for a lot of frying. I love the Calphalon pans. The special thing about the Infused pans are they can also be put in the oven and used with the broiler. Wonderful!
