Eggplants baked, peel and cut into small pieces. Mixed with minced meat, 2 eggs, milk, chopped parsley, blend garlic, chopped pepper and spices. Add salt thoroughly. Knead well. Add oatmeal (or breadcrumbs, or both), until the mixture becomes slightly firmer. Allow to absorb at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Already tight mixture formed meatballs. Heat the oven to 220C. Beat the remaining 2 eggs with the oil and meatballs Oval in them, and then oatmeal (or breadcrumbs). Arrange in pan on baking sheet and bake until ready, about 25 minutes.

are wonderful! This is my favorite combination - eggplant with minced meat. We like!

Glad Reni! Since last year Marina had written that the eggplant was called the *meat of the band's* haunted me the idea to mix eggplant with minced meat. Twice already do these meatballs and even my son who does not like eggplant, eat fairly large quantities :) I see that you served with a sauce (or dip?). What is this? I serve them one time with garlic yogurt sauce and the other time with Pate Avocado

Rally I filled them with mashed potatoes (I think goes well). :)

again made them :) became a favorite at home :)

Very tasty meatballs! Garlic sauce made with yogurt and mayonnaise. We liked a lot. Will certainly make a lot of times! :)

Reni, Nelly, bklagodarya for the good comments! But above all I am very glad that you like meatballs! This can be heard :)
