These are *FABULOUS*!!! I made these as part of the Recipe Cookalong Challenge Game's Sandwich Week and am so glad I did! I used NurseDi's Grilled Eggplant (#30004) for the eggplant. We also added a couple sundried tomatoes and roasted bell peppers and some sundried tomato dressing on these., but the base flavors of the sandwich are terrific. Sourdough seems like a good choice of bread. BF thinks they would be good with fresh tomatoes too (I don't like fresh tomatoes, so that's all him- *lol*). Made these on the George Foreman grill and were fast, easy and mind-bogglingly delicious! Absolutely gourmet/restaurant quality! They were sooooooooo good!
Oh, this was gooood!!! I broiled the eggplant since I don't own a Foreman grill. I used sourdough bread and broiled it too. Delicious!
Thanks Chia :) Easy and Delicious! I made this on Ciabatta bread with garlic infused olive oil, the family loved it!
