little rock aubergine casserole


Little Rock Aubergine Casserole is what my grandfather calls it. He grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas. I don't know where the recipe comes from before him, but it seems I can always remember him making this. And apple crumble.

You need:

1 onion, diced
1 aubergine (eggplant), diced
1/2 bunch celery, diced
4-5 medium vine tomatoes, diced
salt and pepper
9 eggs
4 ounces sharp aged cheddar cheese, grated
1 ounce parmesan, grated


Start by adding a glug of olive oil and the onions to a large, hot saucepan. Saute the onions until about half cooked. Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Add the aubergine and celery. Stir through and saute until about half cooked.

Add the tomatoes, along with about 1 Tb fresh cracked black pepper and a couple teaspoons Celtic sea salt. Saute until starting to soften.

Crack the eggs directly into the pan. Stir through, and cook until eggs are more scrambled than wet. Add the cheddar off the heat and mix well.


Tip into a large casserole dish and top with the parmesan. I use a 9x13 inch. If you're feeling fancy, you can fill little ramekins for personal serving to guests. Pop into a preheated oven and bake at 400 F for about 40 minutes, until set and browned. Not all the moisture will evaporate, so don't cook until dry. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving hot, or serve chilled.

This is almost better the following day as the flavors meld and improve in the fridge overnight. Serve as a meal in itself, or as a side to other foods. Aubergine casserole is especially yummy served picnic style, cold, with fried chicken, fruit salad and veggie sticks.
