Fried Eggplant and Egg

Eggplant and egg is one of my favorite eggplant dishes. I am not sure but I think we call it Tortang Talong too. It is easy and quick to prepare too. All you have to do is grill the eggplant first then cook it with eggs mixed with onions, red pepper, tomatoes and green onions. You can prepare two small eggplants for one egg. Since we have a bigger size of eggplants here, I sliced the eggplant into 4 pieces lengthwise and grilled it. I cooked only one slice for this and I used the other slices for eggplant salad and ginisang talong or sauted eggplant. This can be eaten for breakfast or dinner. My husband won't eat this for breakfast because he only eats eggs without onions and bell pepper. If it has vegetables in it then it is best served for dinner. But I do eat it anytime in any day with rice.

Grilled eggplant

tomatoes (I used diced tomatoes with olive and garlic in cans)

green onions
red bell pepper
1 egg
1 tbsp cooking oil
salt and pepper (optional)
Beat the egg and mix well all ingredients except the grilled eggplant.
Add the eggplant and press it using a fork so the egg mixture will be absorbed.
Fry in hot cooking oil on a pan. Pour the egg mixture on top of the grilled eggplant if you are only using one slice of it. If two slices of eggplants are used, you can divide the egg mixture in two and frying is done twice.
