Eggplant Stuffing

Oh bring on the pork chops for this one! I love different types of stuffing mixes for whatever I’m cooking and a huge fan of eggplant, this one is tops! You can also stuff a turkey or chicken with this recipe and it’s just as good, but we like to serve it along with a pork roast, chops or even a side for baked ham or a steak on the grill.

Chunky Eggplant Spread

If you’re hosting parties during the holiday, it’s nice to have different spreads to top cocktail bread or crackers. I remember my mom having all different kinds of hors d’oeuvres during the Christmas season to share with guests who would stop by for a cocktail and to wish us a Merry Christmas! I wonder now if it was just to get some of my mom’s good cooking, but they never did come empty handed, as they  always showed up at the door bearing all kinds of goodies from bottles of wine to home baked cakes and pies to share with us, lots of good memories of my mom during the holidays baking up a storm!
