Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

greek, beef, casseroles

3 eggplant (baby); 1\4 inch slices
1 1/2 ground beef, lamb, or turkey
1 large onions; chopped
3 garlic; minced
1 sauce
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tomatoes; crushed
1 tomato paste
1/3 cup black or green olives; chopped (kalamata best)

1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 topping
1 2-3 oz feta cheese; crumbled

To prepare the eggplant, salt both sides of each piece and place in a colander in a single layer for about 1 hour to drain. Rinse, pat dry, and set aside Brown the meat in a medium size skillet over medium heat. Drain off the fat and liquid and remove the meat to a bowl or plate. Using the same skillet, cook the onion and garlic, stirring, over medium heat until softened. To make the sauce, add the rest of the ingredients, except the feta cheeseand dill, and simmer until hot and slightly thickened, 15-20 minutes. Layer in the slow cooker in this order: sauce, eggplant, meat, sauce, eggplant, meat, sauce. Sprinkle the feta cheese on top and the dill on top of that. Cover, set on low, and cook for 7-9 hours, or set on high and cook for 2-3 hours.
