Baked Eggplant and Feta
3 medium eggplants sliced, 1/2 inch thick
Preheat oven to 350° F.
1/4 cup olive oil
1 medium onion, julienned
3 cloves garlic, chopped
4 red bell peppers roasted, peeled, seeded
4 ounces feta cheese
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1 teaspoon chopped fresh marjoram
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large sauté pan. Add as many slices of eggplant as will fit into the pan in one layer.
Brown each side well, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove eggplant from pan and drain on a baking sheet while you cook the rest of the eggplant, using more oil as needed.
Place onions and garlic in pan and sauté until you can smell the aroma.
Lightly oil a 9 x ll-inch baking dish and layer the eggplant on the bottom of the dish. Place onion and garlic mixture and roasted red bell peppers on top of eggplant, then crumble feta on top of peppers. Sprinkle with pepper, oregano, marjoram, and bread crumbs.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

Very delicious. The only thing different that I did was salt the eggplant before and after it sweat out all the water I wiped all the salt off then baked.
