Moussaka meatballs

These are amazing for pasta or in sandwiches. Must use a tomato-centric side with it.

1 large eggplant
1 small yellow onion
1 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp ketchup
0.5 tsp black pepper
0.5 tsp cumin
0.25 tsp cinnamon
0.25 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt

0.5 cup breadcrumbs
1 lb ground beef
1 egg

Mince the onion and garlic, dice the eggplant.

Fry the onion in oil, then add the garlic and 30 seconds later the diced eggplant and the spices. Cook on medium-high, mixing frequently, until most of the water content evaporated. Cool.

Mix the ground beef with the egg, breadcrumbs, eggplant mix, and salt. Form into small balls with wet hands.

Set the balls onto cookie sheets sprayed with oil. Spray the tops as well, then bake in a 350F preheated oven, until done (about 20-25 minutes).

Serve with pasta.

Or in a sandwich. Did I mention that I highly recommend taking most meals near waterfalls? Real ones.
