Eggplants with minced meat in the oven



In a large frying pan put extra virgin olive oil until it covers the bottom of the pot. Once you get the proper temperature add one large minced onion -or 2- and 1-2 cloves of garlic and fry for 1-2 minutes having added 3-4 pinches of salt and pepper (if you have irritable bowel boil onions in water for at least 20 minutes before frying them). Then add 1kg minced meat. After the meat becomes light brown, stop stirring and pour two freshly cut tomatoes or tomato juice(package) and 2 bay leaves. After a boil add 1/2 glass of red wine and let it boil for another 5-10 minutes in order for the alcohol to evaporate. After your meal is ready, remove the bay leaves.
Cut the eggplants of medium size in half and remove the two peaks. Then  remove the seed if there are any inside. Deep your eggplants in salty water for half an hour for its bitterness to go away and then rinse with plenty of water to wash away the excess salt.

Fry your eggplants for a while to soften them and then before you place them in the oven, lay on them the minced meat and the chopped tomatoes. Afterwards on a baking pan, where you have spread baking sheet cook them in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 1/2 hour. Add thinnly chopped potatoes on parchment paper, drizzled them with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Bon appetit!
