Recipe Here
Eggplant gratin
I found the recipe Here
3 Tbs. olive oil
2 eggplants
3 tomatoes
1 lb. Mozzarella
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 can of whole tomatoes
Here's a great easy recipe for those who love melted cheese and a little less vegetables ...
Grease the pan with the olive oil, cut the eggplnats alongside, the tomatoes and the mozzarela in 1/2 inch slices. Broil the eggplants on a rack, two to four minutes on each side. Line the pan with one layer of eggplant, add salt an pepper, and a bit of oil, then line the eggplant with slices of tomatoes, then mozzarella, then basil leaves, and start again.
Take the canned tomatoes, pour the juice on the sides of the pan, and some of the tomatoes. You can keep the remaining tomatoes for another preparation. Season the top layer, ad oil and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Serve hot.

Rosemary-Garlic Roasted Potatoes

I found the recipe Here

1 large sprig rosemary, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup canola or olive oil
1 tsp. salt, plus more to taste
cracked black pepper, to taste
Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir well.
Spread evenly in a large (11 x 13-in.), oiled baking dish or on an oiled baking sheet. Sprinkle with paprika.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 35-45 minutes, depending on the heat of your oven and the size of your potato cubes, turning occasionally with a spatula, until the potatoes are tender and golden brown around the edges

    I'm sure it will work without the bread machine.
    LEt me know how it works.
