How to make it
- Wash, dry and cut eggplants.
- Arrange eggplants on large baking sheet (you may need to use 2 of them). Slightly brush slices with half the olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Place under the grill on medium heat until lightly golden (5-10 minutes). They will finish baking later. Set aside.
- In a medium pan cook garlic and onions with 2 Tbsp of oil until transparent but not brown. Turn heat off and add herbs, parsley and crumbled feta cheese, mixing until cheese starts to melt. Taste and add salt if needed (onions are very sweet).
- Preheat oven to 375ºF
- In a greased shallow baking pan or casserole put halt the sliced tomatoes, half of the pre-baked eggplants and ALL the feta and onion mixture. End with the rest of the tomatoes and eggplant slices.
- In a small bowl mix eggs, cream, milk, flour, salt and pepper to taste.
- Carefully pour the mixture over the pan (you will may have some leftover mixture) and take it to the preheated oven for 30-45 minutes, watching not to burn the top. If it starts to brown too much just cover it with foil.
- The mixture will never completely set because of the juices of the tomatoes, making the dish saucy in the bottom and very pleasant.

I sent this recipe to a Facebook friend who writes for the Minnapolis newspaper. I'm making this on Sunday for the family. I'm lucky to have son-in-law and grandchildren that are not picky eaters. I made bread from my favorite bread recipe book.
I made it this week end and the family liked it. I did make one change, when you said the tomatoes would be saucy at the bottom, I sliced the tomatoes and put them on a oiled baking sheet. I baked them in a 300 degree oven for about 45 minutes. Som...more
