Paleo Eggplant Tiella

The other day, Paleo Cupboard‘s Amy Densmore, posted a photo and link to her Italian Breaded Eggplant and immediately the ideas started streaming into my head as to what I could use this for 🙂

“Italian Meatball Sub, what about modding it to make Fish and Chips?, using it as a base for Eggs Benedict, or the first thing that popped into my head: Eggplant Tiella (Basically a layered vegetable casserole)”

I paired this with a piece of Jerk Rainbow Trout I had sitting waiting in my fridge to be eaten, but needing something special alongside it. (If you have never had Jamaican Jerk Seasoned Trout, you are really missing out… Awesome!!)
