1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley

1. Place the aubergine halves in a shallow oven-proof dish. Gently make a few deep slices in the flesh, add a pinch of salt and drizzle with oil. Bake in medium oven until tender. Remove and allow to cool slightly. Carefully remove the flesh with a spoon. In a bowl, finely chop this flesh and mix well with the minced beef and ham, beaten egg, bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper.
