I have made these twice now. The first time I used our George Foreman grill and they were wonderful. I cooked them on the grill for our holiday cook-out and they were even better--obviously a more smoky, charbroiled flavor. These were so easy and tasted great. Even folks who are not crazy about eggplant enjoyed them. Thanks NurseDi.
My picky hubby sat down to this and said, "you know I really don't like eggplant..." then a bite...then, "but this is the best eggplant I've ever had in my life!" I actually broiled this instead of grilling; and I used fresh garlic instead of the garlic salt. I also used oregano & basil in place of the italian seasoning (as I imagine that must be what it's made of). Oh, and I didn't peel the eggplant (I missed that instruction!!) But you know what, my favorite part of this dish was the contrast between the crispy skin and the soft interior! Next time I would not peel it again! I actually hate eggplant myself. Every time I get one in my veggie basket, I groan, "oh, man, what am I gonna make with it THIS time?" At least now I have something I can look forward to!!
I know how to grill eggplant, but was looking for some new ideas - but wanted to keep it simple, and this recipe was exactly what I wanted. I used olive oil instead of butter - I didn't see that any of the other reviewers have done that, and I was wondering why. I think it came out great. I also had two smaller eggplant, and there was plenty of the spread to put on the eggplant - probably 25-30 slices in all.
We are not eggplant lovers but DD wanted to try one. I saw this recipe and thought we would like it. DD didn't. She thought it was to spicy. But DH and really liked did. And it went really well with our grilled steak. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. We will have this many times more. Thanks for a quick, easy and tasty recipe.
