The thyme and garlic flavored mayonnaise adds incredible flavor to this tomato and broiled Parmesan crusted eggplant which is served on crusty French bread.

Yum! The garlic and thyme mayo is very good on this sandwich. I had some sliced eggplant and seasoned bread crumbs left from another recipe and just added the parmesan cheese to the crumbs before broiling the eggplant for this sandwich. I also used French bread that had been topped with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and minced onion to add even more flavor to the sandwich. It was great and very filling.
