Aubergines, Potatoes and Sausages Bake

Keep making some good dishes lately that I can't seem to succeed them a second time! Soooo..... Introducing a new label under the theme of "Cooking"! And yes! It's gonna be in English.Don't think anyone will mind. After all, I had this blog inactive for the past few years. That doesn't mean I'm not interested in Criminology or what's happening around the world anymore. On the contrary! It's just that my lifestyle has changed a bit lately, for the best so far!

Anyways, back to business! Aubergines, Potatoes and Sausage Bake! A recipe of my own, inspired from a dish my mom makes. Love you mommy!!! (here's the awkward american-ish remark!)

Ingredients:

3 medium sized aubergines (eggplants)
3 medium sized potatoes
2  fresh leek sausages (uncooked, nor smoked)
1 large dry onion
1 large mature tomato 
1 small red sweet pepper (I used the pointy type instead the bell one)
2 cloves of garlic
olive oil
oregano
sea salt and pepper
some granted kaseri cheese or feta

Directions:

-1- Wash the aubergines and slice them into 2 cm thick slices. I like to clean a few long strips from their skin, but don't overdo it, 'cause they are to loose their shape. Sprinkle the slices on both sides with sea salt and let them stand for about an hour. This draws out the bitterness of the aubergines. Wash them again and leave them to dry in a strainer.
-2- Skin the potatoes, wash and slice them into 2 cm thick slices. Clean and slice the onion into thinner slices. Slice the sausages into thicker slices, 4-5 cm thick.
-3- Cut the garlic into tiny pieces, don't smash it! Cut the red pepper into square pieces too. 
-4- Grease the potato and aubergine slices on both sides with olice oil.
-5- Place the aubergine, potato, onion and sausage slices standing side to side in an olive oil greased ovenproof baking dish. Sprinkle them with the pieces of pepper and garlic, add lots and lots of oregano, salt and pepper to the taste and pour the dish all over with the tomato, which you have grated. Add some water, so the liquids are up to 1/3 of your dish.
-6- Cover and bake in a preheated oven of 190 Celsius for 50-60 minutes.
-7- When the vegetables are fully cooked, uncover and bake for another 5 minutes. Then add the grated cheese, or chunks of feta and bake for another 5 minutes.

Enjoy warm!

Tips:

-1- Add any other vegetable you might have left in your fridge! Just keep in mind that the size of the slice effects the time of cooking.
-2- Sausages can be replaced with pieces of meat. Next time, I'm planning to try this with chicken or pork!
-3- Don't go stingy with oregano! You will regret it!





This is not my photo! Sorry I didn't take any pictures, but this is more or less how you are suppose to arrange your dish.

Photos of your tries and comments are always welcome!
