Far East Eggplant- Betty Crocker's Cooking Calendar

This cookbook is a small spiral bound that was published in 1962. It is unique in that it is a combination date book and cookbook. There is a dated entry for each day of the year with a little quote and place for you to write something. It is divided in chapters, one for each month of the year. This recipe is from the October chapter. I reminds me of Ratatouille. I certainly don't know where the "Far East" part of it is.
Far East Eggplant
1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 green pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 medium eggplant, cubed
4 tomatoes, cut up
1 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
6 slices crisp crumbled bacon
Cook ingredients except cheese and bacon in skillet until tender. Top with cheese and bacon. Brown under broiler. 4 servings

What a flashback! My mother used to make what she called "Far East Eggplant" and I'm sure this is the same recipe! I can taste it now!
Thanks for posting it!
