About this recipe: This recipe is one of many I have developed to utilise the bounty of aubergines my garden has produced this year. The kids will even love aubergines made this way!
If you don't have Gruyère to hand, feel free to use Cheddar or any other cheese you wish.
Something else. Instead of frying I baked these at 180 for 10 minutes each side. - 27 Jun 2011
My vegetarian daughter loved these. Thanks for the recipe. - 27 Jun 2011
Tasty! I used home-grown Japanese eggplants, split them in half, drizzled some olive oil over them and baked them in the oven for 20 minutes at 350°. That gave them a nice roasted flavour. I used a fancy Mexican cheese blend instead of just cheddar and added Italian seasonings and cumin to the cheese mix. I then baked the patties for 20 minutes total, flipping them after 10 minutes. Thanks! - 31 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
