This is my version of an eggplant-and-mozzarella “sandwich” you’d find in an Italian food shop.
The Italian eggplant arrived in the CSA box. I cut it into “coins” brushed each coin with EVOO and grilled them on the stove.
The oven I bought last Labor Day has a fifth burner that has a grill pan you can use above the oval burner.
I used the grill pan on the fifth burner to grill the eggplant coins for about 7 to 9 minutes or so. I didn’t keep track of the time. I viewed the coins to see when they were golden brown. I turned each coin over halfway through.
The mozzarella I used alternating with the eggplant to make a sandwich was the Galbani fresh mozzarella that comes sliced.
Again I don’t like to have a lot of cheese because doing so can elevate your LDL or “bad” cholesterol.
