Eggplant With Mushroom Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
I made this for a family dinner (eight people) and received rave reviews with nothing left over. It was many peoples first time trying eggplant, or the first time after a bad experience with it years ago. I'm happy to report that I turned everyone into eggplant fans! I made the following alterations because of the increased number of guests and what I had readily availible: I used 3 good sized eggplants, about 3 cups of chopped mushrooms, about a half of a really huge onion, and found that a little over a 1/4 cup of butter sufficed. I also didn't have breadcrumbs so used about a cup and a half of Panko (which was delicious and crunchy and made up for some of the left-out buttery flavor). I also didn't have 'Italian Seasoning' so I eyeballed a mixture of basil, oregano, thyme, dried parsley and sage. I was a bit short on Swiss so i diluted it with a bit of shredded cheddar, and it was wonderful. I made one shell without cheese for a specific guest and they loved it, so if you dont have swiss of much cheese on hand I wouldn't worry about if affecting the outcome too much, maybe just top off with a bit of parsley. LOVED IT and might make it as a new side this christmas! I would highly recommend using this recipe to convert any eggplant skeptic!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
I opted for a vegan mayonnaise replacement (vegannaise)and used slightly less cream cheese than was called for and we still found it a bit too rich! However, I may try this recipe out again and make a few adjustments or play around with it a bit. I would definetely recommend using vegannaise in place of mayonnaise if you have found it too "eggy" or "rich" in the past. However my family is not used to eating dips quite this creamy so it may just be our adjusting taste buds!

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
Have made this several times for family and friends and there is never any left over! I always recieve compliments, and am asked for the recipe. This seems to be one of the few recipes I have found that didn't need any adjustments and was perfect as was wrote. Thanks for sharing a family favorite, as it has become one of my family's favorites as well!
