Slice eggplant and sprinkle with salt; set aside for 15 to 20 minutes. Pare and slice potatoes; dry eggplant slices. Brown eggplant and potatoe slices in olive oil. Drain on paper towels and set aside. Saute onion and ground beef in 2 tablespoons melted butter until brown; add parsley and tomato sauce and simmer for 10 minutes. Dust a greased 13x9x2-inch baking dish with breadcrumbs. Place a layer of potatoes, eggplant, and meat mixture in pan; repeat layers, ending with eggplant. Combine remaining butter and flour; cook over low heat, stirring constantly. Heat milk; gradually add to flour mixture, stirring constantly. Cook over low heat until thick; cool slightly. Beat egg yolks, and combine with cheese and nutmeg; add to sauce. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into sauce. Pour sauce over eggplant-meat layers. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes or until golden brown. SOURCE: Southern Living Magazine, sometime in the early 1970s. Typed for you by Nancy Coleman.

theresaluu 1 year agoVery Tasty indeed. However, it is quite labor intensive for a newbie. I wasn't sure how I was supposed to stir the butter/flour mix while heating the milk lol.
Mollymcferren 1 year agoLove this. I think it is important to take the time to make the egg/milk topping, it's the best part! I added a little mozz cheese to the layers and sprinkled more bread crumbs and parmesan on top.
Elizabethd002 1 year agoMy boyfriend absolutely loves this. Though my second time I made a few changes. Instead of browning the eggplant which took too much time I brushed some butter, olive oil, and garlic mix over the eggplant and added that to my dish, no paper towels. I also cut the skin off the eggplant. Then for the sauce I used a cup heavy cream and cup milk, butter, and mozzarella cheddar mix, no flour or eggs (whites never seem to turn out) for a creamier texture. I supose you can use any cheese. I also put my potatoe slices in water and some salt to keep them moist while prepping. Plus I added more bread crumbs for the topper. Thanks for posting a real success!!!
AndreaStewart 1 year agoIt's very tasty! Next time I'm doubling the topper because it's my favorite part. It's a bit time consuming, but worth it in the end!
