Boil whole egg plant in unsalted water 20 m. Cut in halves lengthwise, or if only one piece is to be baked cut a little one side of the middle, using the larger piece for stuffing. The quantity of stuffing given is for one piece only. Scrape out the pulp with a spoon, leaving a wall 1/2 - 3/4 in. thick. Chop pulp and mix with the other ingredients, using only half the oil or butter. Rub a little salt over the inside of the egg plant, press the stuffing in firmly, sprinkle with crumbs and chopped parsley and pour oil over. Bake in quick oven about 1/2 hour, covered when sufficiently browned.
