Eggplant beef and cheese casserole question

SIMIHOUND | Oct 31, 2007 06:30 PM

I am trying to enhance a recipe I just tried. Here is the recipe and below is the question that I have. BTW I liked this very much. It's not low fat but is is low carb.

The recipe is to cook ground beef with sauteed mushrooms and onions. Season with Italian or Indian spices. (we used Italian spices) and drain off the mix. Then in a baking dish layer eggplant then layer with the beef onion mushroom mix and then layer with mozzarella. Keep layering. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

If I wanted to add a layer of sliced potato would I have to cook or blanche the potato first? My concern is that I dont want to bake this dish too long because the eggplant may get too soggy or wet. I assume I would use brown baking potato.

Also if anyone has any other enhancements to this dish or ideas how to make it better such as different seasonings please chime in.
