Eggplant balls or polpette as they’re called in Italy, are mostly found in Sicily & Calabria. In Sicily they add raisins & pinoli nuts. In some parts of Calabria a piece of caciocavallo cheese is tucked in the middle as a little cheesy surprise. In my version, I did a combination. I added the pine nuts & raisins to the eggplant then stuffed them with a filling of ricotta, pecorino & mozzarella.

Besides being delicious, eggplant is full of nutrition. Check out this great article on the “Well-Being Secrets” web page about all the health benefits eggplant has to offer.
