I was very worried to make this dish because I have never liked eggplant, but I received one in my CSA share and decided to give it a try. What a nice surprise! I didn't just swallow it down, I actually liked it! It has a really nice flavor, and the eggplant blends in. The kids weren't crazy about the bechamel sauce, but didn't complain about the eggplant. I will make this again for company I think. This time I cut the recipe in half and it fit nicely in a small oblong dish. I made the recipe as directed except without adding any butter to the ground beef mixture. I also forgot to scald the milk first for the bechamel. It took forever to thicken (more than 20 minutes?) and I had to add an extra TBL of flour, but it eventually did thicken. I served this with a simple side salad of tomato and cucumber slices drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil and topped with feta cheese.
