Preparation

Fry the aubergines in a very hot griddle pan with a little oil. Preheat the oven to 200°C and start to prepare the aubergine combination: put some baking parchment on a baking sheet; then place a slice of aubergine as a base on which you put a little mozzarella, a slice of tomato, oregano, a little ham; then another slice of aubergine , mozzarella, tomato, oregano, ham, then a final slice of aubergine, a smear of tomato sauce and two cubes of mozzarella. This will give you a kind of layered "cake". Proceed with the rest of the aubergine until you’ve used them all up. Once all the aubergine ‘cakes’ are ready, place them in the oven for 20 minutes. To serve I prefer to use a ‘ring’ with which I cut the aubergine mixture to give it a more regular shape. Et voilà, your aubergines with tomato sauce and oregano are ready to be devoured!
