  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Put bread crumbs in a bowl with enough water to cover; set aside to soak.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet. Cook and stir ground beef, onion, and garlic in hot oil until the beef is completely browned and no large chunks remain, 7 to 10 minutes.
  4. Stir eggplant into ground beef mixture; cook and stir until eggplant is tender, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and set aside to allow mixture to cool.
  5. Drain excess water from bread crumbs and dump into a large bowl; add ground beef mixture, half the tomatoes, rice, Italian cheese blend, egg, and basil. Stir the mixture until ingredients are evenly mixed, adding more liquid from the tomatoes if too dry; season with salt and pepper. Fill the eggplant shells with the mixture and put into a large baking dish. Top with remaining tomatoes and cover dish with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, remove foil, and continue baking until beginning to brown around the edges, about 10 minutes more.

This recipe fit right in with the meal plan my husband and I are eating. It was very very good, but I did add a little more seasonings to it, as we like more flavor. I added the cheese blend at ...

ery good recipe that I ended up grilling outside. I didn't add egg to my recipe and top it off with some Parmesan cheese.

Fabulous! Great idea! Served with a kale-feta-pinenut salad. I used leftover taco salad meat/olive/tomato with spanish rice and mixed together with the eggplant. Served for my family of 7. Mom l...

I followed the recipe except for the hard boiled egg and it was disappointing. Pretty much tasteless.
