    There was an old weight watchers recipe that called for eggplant, ground beef and I think tomato sauce as the main ingredients. Anybody happen to have a recipe that sounds like this. I'd appreciate it. [img]graemlins/kiss.gif[/img]

    I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but here's a Beef Mousaka recipe that might be good? I haven't tried it yet!

    1 medium eggplant(s), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
    1 tsp table salt
    1 Tbsp vegetable oil
    1 pound lean ground beef
    1 small onion(s), chopped
    1 medium garlic clove(s), finely chopped
    8 oz canned tomato sauce
    1/3 cup wine, red
    1 tsp dried parsley
    1/8 tsp dried oregano
    1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 large egg white(s), beaten
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

    Instructions

    Preheat oven to 350║F. Place eggplant slices in a colander; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and let stand 15 minutes.

    Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; sautÚ eggplant until lightly browned, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels; set aside.

    In the same skillet, sautÚ beef, onion and garlic until beef is brown and onion is tender, about 4 minutes; drain off fat. Stir in 1/2 cup of tomato sauce, wine, parsley, remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt, oregano and cinnamon; simmer for 10 minutes.

    Stir 1/4 cup of beef mixture into egg white; return to skillet, mix well. Cook 1 minute.

    Pour remaining 1/2 cup of tomato sauce into bottom of 9 X 13-inch baking dish. Place 1/2 of eggplant slices on top of sauce, then spoon on beef mixture; top with remaining eggplant slices and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake until cheese is browned and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Slice into 6 pieces and serve.
