For Thanksgiving, Rice Dressing or Cornbread dressing is always on the table. We love dressing. Substitute your dressing with this easy Eggplant Dressing. The dressing is flavorful and delicious.

A great way to incorporate vegetables in a dish and your kids won’t even notice. My kids didn’t know at all.

Eggplant is a great source of vitamins and minerals.


  • Large Eggplant (1)(diced into small pieces, cuts the cooking time)
  • Ground Beef 80/20 (3lb)
  • Cooked Rice (Desired amount)
  • Slap Ya Mama Seasoning (Season to taste)
  • Chicken Stock (1/2 cup or so)
  • Smoked Paprika (Season to taste)
  • Garlic Powder (Season to taste)
  • White onion (diced)
  • Orange Bell Peppers (diced)


  1. Add the ground beef to a skillet. Brown the meat.
  2. Add in the onions and bell peppers. Stirring often.
  3. Once the onions are translucent. Remove the meat mixture and drain the ground beef.
  4. Add the eggplant to the same skillet. Saute. Stirring often. 5 – 8 minutes or until soft.
  5. Season with slap ya mama, smoked paprika and garlic powder. Stir.
  6. Add the ground beef back to the skillet.
  7. Add in the chicken stock. Cook for about 5 minutes or until some of liquid is dissolved.
  8. Mix in the desired amount of rice. Stir and mix well.
  9. Taste. Add in more seasoning if necessary.
  10. Serve. The amount I prepared was enough to feed my family of 4 and they ate twice. Double or triple based on the amount of people.
  11. Enjoy.
