Melitzanokeftedes: Eggplant Fritters

I cook almost exclusively meat on the BGE. Sure sometimes I'll add a veggie or two, and I made the Ultimate Peach Cobbler two or three times this month but really, I'm mostly a meat eater and cook.

To my surprise, a intriguing recipe caught my eye and I decided to make it for dinner tonight. It's a Greek dish called Melitzanokeftedes, eggplant fritters or "eggplant meatballs." I'm Greek, I've eaten tons of Greek food, but I don't recall ever eating Melitzanokeftedes. Regular keftedes, sure. Tons. I have very fond memories of eating those with my Grandfather in Greece. But never an eggplant version.

Pretty standard, two eggplants.

Chop the tops, score them EVOO, S&P.

Flesh side down, 350F or so for about 30 minutes.

With any luck, yours will look like these.

Add a bunch more ingredients, make into patties, fry in more EVOO and serve with Tzatziki.

We had baked potatoes and grilled corn to round it out.

Recipe is here:

I'll make this again. Maybe next time as an appetizer.
