Slice the egg-plant about one fourth of an inch thick. Pare and remove the seeds, and soak in very cold water for half an hour.

Cracker- or bread-crumbs may be used in place of the corn-meal if liked.
Remove the inside portions of the egg-plant, and soak the remainder in cold salt and water.
Drain and fill with a dressing made of one pint of bread crumbs, two good sized tomatoes, a teaspoonful of onion- juice, butter the size of an egg, a teaspoonful of sugar, and salt and pepper to taste.
Cover each egg-plant again with a piece that was cut off in order to remove the seeds, and place in the oven to bake.
