Eggplant is perfect for the grill. Just a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Yummy!!! My favorite use of grilled eggplant is on a sandwhich. A grilled veggie sandwhich is about as good as it gets!!

    I made eggplant almost like this yesterday. It was SO delicious! Mine was just a bit different. I used baby eggplant and I am SO GLAD I did - I hate the seeds in big eggplant. I added minced garlic & put in a bag w/ eggplant, salt, and pepper with oil. Shook, grilled 3 or 4 min each side - Voila! - 6/16/09

    I wasn't able to grill mine, but I pan-fried it for the same length of time on each side. I added garlic salt, pepper and sprinkled parmasean cheese on top after I flipped it. The flavour was really good, but it was a bit too mushy for my likings. - 8/27/09

  • This was so simple, and soo good! I also added some minced garlic to the EVOO and pepper. I added it to a turkey burger on an Arnold's Sandwich Thin...YUM!! - 8/11/09
