I too "doctored it up" a little (see pic) but the recipe gave me a great starting ground since I didn't really know how to cook eggplant at all! Make sure you add salt/pepper after you oil them plus I added tomatoes and garlic to roast at the same time to put on top. Along with the fresh basil I added some balsamic and those two additions really made it great! Read More

I followed this recipe exactly and it really needs something else. It was just ok. I would not waste the time and effort to make this again. Read More

I liked this meal but like the previous reviewer mentioned my toddler did not. It was quick and easy though and a simple way to use up the eggplants I keep getting in the CSA box. Read More

I made this tonight I was very excited about it as I try to make one vegetable main dish three days a week for dinner. After reading the reviews I peeled the eggplant and salted and added olive oil and balsamic vinegar to both sides. For the topping I added Parmesan and mozzarella along with Mediterranean herbed feta cheese bread crumbs cherry tomatoes garlic powder salt and pepper and olive oil over the tops. Put in oven for 15 minutes at 350. Topped with basil. DELICIOUS!!!!!!! Read More

I really enjoyed this...WITH the addition of balsamic vinegar and tomatoes. Before cooking I soaked the eggplant slices in a mixture of the vinegar and oil. Broiled for five minutes then added the cheese and tomatoes and baked all together till the eggplant was soft which took a little longer than 10 minutes for me. When I brought them out of the oven I drizzled with more vinegar and sprinkled the basil on. The skin of the eggplant was a little tough but I enjoyed the rest. They were pretty and very colorful on the plate. I think I would prefer this with goat cheese crumbles and may try that in the future. Thanks for a new idea! Read More

This was great except the feta didn't melt and I had to put it under the broiler again. That turned to be perfect. Also I should have added garlic to the feta. We didn't have tomatoes but it didn't take away from the meal. Read More

I thought this was great. Read the other reviews and added the tomatoes as suggested I didn't have basil:/ but used garlic and salt & pepper. I had to cook mine quite a bit longer before the feta got bubbly but everyone loved it! Read More
