Beef 'n' Eggplant Pie

Rated as 4.29 out of 5 Stars

"Everyone likes eggplant when you taste it in this savory pie. If you have eggplant in the garden or can get it at the market, I'd recommend this recipe. If the eggplant is large and the skin seems tough, its a good idea to peel it first. -Audrey Nemeth Chesterville, Maine"

ok but watch the pie crust you use. works better with a thin crust pizza dough. more tomato sauce and toss in some pepperoni to jazz it up long with some hot pepper sprinkles
