Number of Servings: 4


    2 tbsp reduced-fat mayo
    2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
    2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    2 1/2-inch slices eggplant (about 1 small)
    1/2 tsp garlic salt
    8 slices whole-grain country bread
    8 thin slices fresh mozzarella cheese
    1/3 cup sliced jarred roasted red peppers
    4 thin slices red onion


1. Preheat grill to medium-high
2. Combine mayo and basil in a small bowl. Using 1 tbsp oil, lightly brush both sides of eggplant and sprinkle each slice with garlic salt. With the remaining 1 tbsp oil, brush one side of each slice of bread.
3. Grill the eggplant for 6 minutes, turn with a spatula, top with cheese, and continue grilling until the cheese is melted and the eggplant is tender, about 4 minutes more. Toast the bread on the grill, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
4. To assemble sandwiches, Spread basil mayo on four slices of bread. Top with the cheesy eggplant, red peppers, onion and the remaining slices of bread. Cut in half and serve warm.
