"Tired of fried eggplant? Eggplant Parmesan too much of a hassle? I came up with this recipe to deal with the plethora of tomatoes and eggplants the garden gives up every summer. I've also added a slice of sweet onion to the packets at times and that's good too. Although I would suggest you try it this way first so you can see just how creamy and good an eggplant really tastes, feel free to add any other herbs you think might be good with this. Oh! by the way, don't eat the skin - that's where the bitter taste is." — DART1121

This is quick and easy. I make a similar version on the stove. The family enjoyed it. I used the tiny chinese eggplant. If you let it cool then it comes out of the foil easier. I cook mine a bit longer only because DH likes it that way! Thank you for the quick dinner side!
It had an odd taste. I ended up adding quite a few extra ingrediants
This was absolutely delicious! I bought some eggplant at the farmer's market and didn't feel like frying it in the warm summer weather. This recipe was the perfect solution. The vegetables were very sweet and made a great meal served with some fresh pasta and bread.
This was great but I changed it a bit, I cubed the eggplant, then put in some cherry tomatos, halved, I also added a clove of minced garlic instead of the garlic salt and put in some basil. I put it in packets and cooked it on the grill. came out great!
I used some of our "Fairytale" eggplant for this, and it was wonderful. Such simple ingredients, too!
Quick and easy! I cut the eggplant in chunks and it came out perfectly.
