Italian Eggplant-Sausage Casserole

I threw this together for dinner tonight.  Pretty easy and quite good!  And we found it most filling.  Though I don’t usually include it, because this dish is so chock full of nutrients, I included some of the more notable items in the nutritional info.  Though I chose to use ground pork in this dish, it would be equally good with ground beef or even lamb.  With lamb, you might want to use feta cheese instead of mozzarella on top.  Only suitable for Induction if you use an unsweet MIM (Muffin in a Minute for the slice of low-carb bread.

More delicious low-carb recipes can be at your fingertips with your very own set of Jennifer Eloff and friends’ best-selling cookbooks LOW CARBING AMONG FRIENDS.  She has collaborated with famous low-carb Chef George Stella and several other talented cooks to bring you a wealth of delicious recipes you are going to want to try.  Even a few of my recipes are in the cookbooks!

    • It is provided you use an induction friendly low-carb bread/roll. That pretty much means an Oopsie Bread or Revolution roll or a One Minute Muffin. if you’re not familiar with them, just Google and you’ll be taken to lots of sites that have the recipe posted.
