An easy way to prepare this lesser-known vegetable. Both recipes are prepared with the fat 'black beauty' variety.

Ham & cheese is an ever-popular combination. Why not add some eggplant? If you don’t like ham and cheese, please leave the room while we enjoy it, because this is good. This is a quick and simple appetizer that will please the crowd.


This is what you need for 3 servings:

  • 1 eggplant fruit
  • 6 slices of ham
  • 2 cups of shredded melting cheese
