I appreciated Sharon's tip (below) about adding garlic. I used a clove of finely chopped fresh garlic. It turns out that two "balls" of mozzarella cheese equals 16 oz. I usually buy shredded mozzarella, so buying the ball was new to me. I'd recommend it though because it seemed fresher and more moist than the shredded "pizza" type mozzarella. This recipe was a bit confusing because the pan size wasn't indicated. It turns out that this is a very forgiving recipe. I had enough to fill two pans of quite different size. Both baked for the same amount of time and came out equally well. Caution on the broiling at the end! I only broiled my pies for one minute because the edges of the wax paper lining started to smoke and I didn't want the smoke alarm to go off. Frankly the pie looked a perfect dark golden brown after just a minute. I wonder if the top would have been burned after 5 minutes. Ten minutes for sure would have been disastrous in my oven. Next time I might skip that step and just add five minutes to the bake time. Also, my pie needed to cool for about ten minutes before serving to make sure it had set well and could be cut for serving.

This could not be easier. An egg, milk and cheese mixture is added to the ham and eggplant and baked until golden. The ham could be left out to make this a vegetarian dish. Experiment with different cheeses and vegetables. I would add garlic powder to the seasonings for a little extra kick.
