New Orleans Eggplant Casserole
This dish may be served as a main course or as a side dish. It is highly modifiable depending on your taste. Personally, I cannot eat onions and green peppers, so I skip those. You can use less or more rice depending on whether you wish to serve as a main or a side. If you do not like spicy food, use mild sausage or all ground beef and no cayenne pepper or hot sauce. Some Cajun purists may complain, but as a bonafide Coon A**, I can assure you that some of us cannot always eat with such gusto. A true taste of the Big Easy.
