Eggplant and meat skewers

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


  1. 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.
  2. 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!
