I made this exactly as posted and used my charcoal grill. The eggplant was wonderfully smokey tasting, and the cheese melted perfectly. I can't believe it, but this was my first time to toast a sandwich on the grill, and it will be a repeat! Yummy!

What a great sandwich! Eggplant tastes wonderful in this. I used prosciutto and made it in my panini maker. For PAC 2009

FABULOUS Lainey! We BOTH enjoyed these sandwiches for lunch today......I used panini rolls and Emmental cheese with prosciutto ham as suggested. The addition of the grilled aubergines was a triumph! We ate these with a green salad and freshly sliced tomatoes - this is a keeper. Merci - made for Holiday tag. FT:-)
