  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add eggplant and cook until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and pour eggplant into an 8-inch square baking dish.

  • Melt butter in a 3-quart saucepan on medium heat. Add flour and mix to create a paste. Add tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, brown sugar, and salt and cook over medium to medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until mixture bubbles and thickens, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour mixture over the eggplant in the baking dish.

  • Cover the vegetables in the baking dish with Cheddar cheese and bread crumbs.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until hot and bubbly, 30 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Use 3 medium tomatoes cut into medium to small pieces in place of canned tomatoes if you prefer.

This dish may be prepared in advance, refrigerated, and later baked.
