"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 (lb) eggplant
1(small) can evaporated milk
1/4 c. green pepper
1/4 c celery
2 eggs
1 dash pepper
1 tsp. monosodium glutamate
1 tsp. pimiento
1/2 lb. bread crumbs (or 8 slices bread)
1/4 c. onion
1/2 stick butter
1/4 c. whole milk
1 tsp. sage
2 oz. grated cheese (on top)

Peel a one pound eggplant. Soak in salted water in refrigerator for several hours or overnite. Soak a half pound dry bread crumbs in one small can of evaporated milk, plus 1/4 cup whole milk. Saute 1/4 cup each of finely chopped green pepper, onion and celery in half stick butter until tender. Boil the soaked eggplant until tender. DRAIN WELL. Mix the bread crumbs, eggplant and sauteed vegetables. Add two slightly beaten eggs, salt to taste, dash pepper, teaspoon sage, tsp. monosodium glutamate and 1 tsp chopped pimiento. Blend well, place in greased casserole, top with 2 oz. of grated cheese. Bake in 350 degree oven until brown.
THE SECRET : (The Wyatts experts say) is in the soaking of the eggplant in salted water beforehand.
