The other day I bought some middle eastern meatballs: basically seasoned ground beef and I decided to do some eggplants and meatballs skewers. I just finished eating them and they were gooooooooooood!!
This is how I proceeded.
Eggplant and meat skewers
- 4 eggplants
- 3/4 pound of seasoned ground beef
- I washed 4 chinese eggplants and cut them in 5 pieces. I took 4 skewers and mounted them by alternating eggplant and a small meatball about the size of a big walnut. On each skewer I had 5 pieces of eggplant and 4 meatballs. Then I placed the skewers in a oven dish and added olive oil, salt and pepper. Turned the skewers around to make sure they were evenly coated in oil, salt and pepper. I cooked the skewers for about 45 minutes in a 400F oven.
- Not sure what were the seasonings in the meatballs were, but they worked really well with the eggplants. The eggplants were super soft and the meatballs well cooked and juicy. I would have eaten 20 skewers!
