Eggplant has been on the back of my mind as an ingredient that I must learn how to use. It is one of those odd shaped, odd colored vegetables that I always skip over at the market. When I saw that Paula Deen had a recipe for Butter Burgers, my mind immediately went to this horrible tale my sister told me of these poor people Wife Swap. They seemed to love and cherish Butter Burgers. I knew that I needed to do more than put a garden burger on a bun, but I needed to infuse a wholesome vegetable. It needed to be vegetable that would add diversity to one's diet. Eggplant came to the rescue.
