GRILLED EGGPLANT SLICES From: "grist" Read My Review These eggplant slices will melt in your mouth. Top them with just a spoonful of a flavorful tomato sauce or a few gratings of fresh Parmesan cheese.

Nice and simple to prepare. I was grilling thick chicken breasts indirect on my Weber, so placing the eggplant slices directly over the hot coals made perfect use of the space. Be sure and let them get done enough so that they are slightly mushy which brings out the flavor. Off the grill, I added a little salt and fresh ground pepper, and then I tried with a little parmesan instead. I like just the flavor of this grilled eggplant recipe as is, adding the touch of salt and pepper. As to number of servings, way off. It was so delicious I ate half the eggplant in one sitting!

Place eggplant on the preheated grill. If you with to have nice grill lines, turn only once on each side. Grill about 10-15 minutes. Test for tenderness (doneness) by piercing with a fork.
