I really cannot understand why the "Northerners" don't eat more eggplant.
To me it is the most delicious vegetable imaginable. I once did a whole
show on nothing but eggplant. I want you to give this dish a serious
chance. It will pay off, I promise!

Heat a large Dutch oven and add the oil. Lightly brown the yellow onions
and garlic and then add the eggplant, celery, green pepper, thyme, parsley,
and tomato paste. Saut”š, covered, stirring often, until the vegetables are
very tender, about 20 minutes.

In the meantime pan-brown the pork. Drain the fat and discard.

When the vegetables are tender stir in the pork, Tabasco, Worcestershire
sauce, salt and pepper, and the egg. Place in a 2-quart baking dish and
sprinkle the bread crumbs on top. Bake uncovered in a 350ø oven until the
top is lightly browned and the dish is very hot, about 35 to 40 minutes.
