Nadine’s Eggplant Ritz Casserole (Mirliton or Squash can be used)


This dish is so versatile as you can use either eggplant, squash or mirlitons (chayote vegetable pear squash). I am tempted to try all three together.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 small bell pepper
  • 2 ribs celery chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed or 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 box 8 ounce Ritz Crackers (keep one cup for topping)
  • 3 medium eggplants
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • salt , black or red pepper to taste
  • butter for topping
  • paprika for garnishment


Step 1

Peel and dice the eggplant. Brown the ground beef then sauté the onions, bell pepper and celery with the ground beef.

Step 2

Add the garlic, eggplant and a small amount of water (about 1/4 cup).

Step 3

Simmer until eggplant is very tender. Add the cream of mushroom soup, crushed Ritz crackers and parley. Add your favorite seasoning.

Step 4

Place is a casserole dish and top with the remaining 1 cup of crackers.

Step 5

Dot with butter and the paprika and Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
