Wash and dry the eggplant. Slice thinly, and fry in the oil, to
which you've added 1/2 the butter.
When done, salt and pepper them. Make the white sauce.
In a shallow pyrex pan, place half the fried eggplant slices, trying
to cover as much space as possible.
Combine half the breadcrumbs with the ground meat mixture, and
layer on top of the eggplants. On top of this, add another layer
of eggplants, using the remaining half. On top of these pour the
white sauce, and dust the top with the grated cheese and remaining
breadcrumbs. Drizzle with melted butter (the remaining), and bake
