Melitzanes me Feta: Baked Eggplant with Feta Cheese
In Greek: μελιτζάνες με φέτα, pronounced meh-leed-ZAH-nes meh FEH-tah
The classic combination of eggplant, tomato, and herbs is enhanced by the addition of feta cheese to create a delicious meatless appetizer or main dish.
- 2 pounds of eggplants (long slender type)
- olive oil for frying
- 5 tablespoons of fresh chopped basil
- 5 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 pound of ripe tomatoes, diced
- 1/2 pound of feta cheese, crumbled
- sea salt
- freshly ground black pepper
Wash the eggplants and remove stems. Cut lengthwise into 1/2 inch slices. Fry lightly (until soft and gently browned) in 1/4 inch of oil.
Preheat the oven to 355F (180C).
Layer the eggplant in the bottom of a baking dish.
Combine the tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste, basil, and garlic in a bowl, and spoon the mixture over the eggplant. Top with feta cheese, and bake at 355F (180C) for 45 minutes.

Julio, Lisa and I were at the beach the last couple days to sell water, diet coke, gatorade and snickers for the Vancouver Folk Festival. We sold all of our drinks. The snickers didn't sell as well as we would of liked. But it was a Good lesson for future events. Last night we got to hear the band Feist play for a little while.

My 1990 Dodge Grand Caravan has acted as my giving tree found in the story The Giving Tree. I had to retire it at 279,000 miles. After sitting for two years it fired right up with a jump start. I can't even count the number of trips we went on between Memphis, TN and Kansas City. It is now helping someone else out. Thanks Bard dog for letting me have your "party wagon". It has been a great help and blessing.
