This is an easy but impressive dish that I use to accompany the main dish in dinner parties. It has proven to be a favourite one among the guests, so it comes highly recommended.
8-9 slices of toast
5 -6 slices of bacon, finely chopped
4 tbsp olive oil
2 onions finely chopped
3 diced aubergines
3 tbsp mustard
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup of cream
2 cups of milk
3 cups of grated cheese, preferably gouda mixed with parmesan or kasseri
2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
Heat the olive oil and sauté the onions and aubergines until soft. Add the mustard, parsley, season and keep stirring for another 1-2 minutes.
Fry the bacon in a separate saucepan and remove the fat. Add it to the aubergine mix.
Remove the edges from the toast and place the slices onto a lightly greased medium baking pan. Pour the mixture over the bread.
Use a bowl to mix the eggs, milk, cream and cheese. Add salt and pour the mixture over the aubergine mix in the baking pan. Bake in a preheated oven (190oC) for approximately 40 minutes.
