Print Recipe


  • 1 grater
  • 1 Oven tray


  • 2 pieces eggplants large size
  • 500 g pork mince min 20-30 % fat
  • 2 pieces tomatoes large, ripe
  • 120 g cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 tsp sea salt kosher
  • 1 tsp ground pepper kosher
  • 1+ ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried vegetable mix
  • 1 tbsp oregano dried
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil or vegetable oil


  • Cut the ends of the eggplants with the tail and slice them lengthwise into thick slices of 1.5-2 cm (0.5-0.8 inches). Slice the tomatoes quite thinly, about half a centimetre thick (0.2 inches). Grate the cheddar cheese on a large grater.
  • Put the minced pork in a bowl and season with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, onion powder and dried vegetable mix.
  • Mix well by hand until all the ingredients are well incorporated, and you will get a homogeneous meat paste.
  • Grease a baking tray with sunflower oil, place the eggplant slices on the tray and pierce each piece several times with a fork. Season with sea salt.
  • Spread all the seasoned minced meat evenly over the eggplant slices.
  • Place the slices of tomatoes on the meat and sprinkle with dried oregano on top.
  • Put the tray in the oven preheated to 180 C Fan (356 F) for twenty minutes.
  • Add the grated cheddar cheese over the baked tomato slices.
  • Put the pan back in the oven at 200 C (392 F) for five minutes, when the cheddar cheese will melt and turn golden.
  • Serve hot, with fresh bread and possibly with a rocket or lettuce salad or, if not, a delicious coleslaw.



Instead of cheddar cheese, you can use any kind of ripened cheese, semi-hard or hard, but which melts quickly.
