Mama Mia this is good! Oh-so-wonderful, oh-so-delicious, oh-so-phenomenal! I would give this 10 stars if I could! This is probably one of the best meals I have made in years! I am so glad I tried it as I never really liked eggplant before this. But I will definitely make this again and again! I can now say I no longer hate eggplant! One of the things that might have put this over the top was the sauce I used. I was lucky enough to be gifted a Tomato, Olive and Ouzo sauce imported from Greece, if you can find that or make that sauce I highly recommend it! With the Greek sauce in mind, I used Greek seasoning instead of the lamb seasoning but kept the cumin, paprika and mint the same. I also added a dash of allspice, a little chili flake and half a chopped red pepper to the onion mixture. I wasn't sure if I'd prefer just bread or served over rice so I tried both. Rice definitely makes it a meal, and it soaks up the sauce. But the bread is good too, and served with a salad would make a lighter meal. My husband and I sprinkled some parmesan on ours, and I thought "how good would this be if I drizzled a béchamel sauce over top" So I made a basic béchamel with parmesan cheese and a dash of nutmeg, poured that over the casserole and baked for 15 minutes. Oh-so-awesome!! I could see this used as a sauce over orzo or egg noodles too. Put this on your must-try list!~~update--This tastes even better the next day!
