This time of year, eggplant is definitely one of those vegetables that makes an appearance in the garden, the farmers’ market and the local grocery store produce department. Thankfully, eggplant is one of those vegetables that you can use in so many ways and it is always delicious! I love to use it in place of pasta in my eggplant lasagna recipe and you know what? My family requests it in place of the more traditional version over and over again!

The same can be said for this simple stuffed eggplant recipe. It is really as easy as it comes to prepare, but because of the presentation of it, everyone thinks you’ve been working away in the kitchen to create it all day! While in reality, you only have about 5-10 minutes of hands on time with this recipe. The oven does the rest of the work for you!

    Hi Robyn, are you working with already baked eggplants when you scoop out the flesh? Or are they still uncooked at this point? Thank you!

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      No, Janet, the eggplants have not been cooked when I scoop out the flesh. Hope you enjoy!

    My family loves stuffed eggplant, we usually cook it on the grill. Never thought about using Worcestershire sauce.
