  Milk 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)

1. Slice eggplant, without peeling, into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick slices.
2. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Saute egg plant slices until lightly browned on both sides. Drain on paper toweling.

5. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt and nutmeg. Remove from heat and add milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and thick. Stir a small amount of the hot mixture into beaten egg yolks. Return to mixture in pan and stir well. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
6. Heat oven to 350°F.
7. Place a layer of egg plant on the bottom of a 2-quart casserole. Top with a layer of lamb-tomato mixture. Repeat process until egg plant and lamb mixture are used. Pour cream sauce over the top.
8. Bake 1 hour or until mixture is very hot and bubbly.
