|Oozing, cheesy goodness!|
Mine begins with the eggplant:
- 1 Eggplant
- 1 egg, whisked
- 1/2 cup Bread crumbs
- Approximately 3 TBSp Olive Oil
- Italian Sub Rolls or full Italian Bread, sliced into sandwich sizes
- 1 Jar of Roasted, Sweet Red Peppers or 1 Fresh Red Pepper, Roasted
- Fresh Mozzarella, sliced
- Fresh Basil
- Approximately 2-3 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Approximately 2-3 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
After the eggplant is bread & cooked, assemble the sandwiches... Bread, eggplant, peppers, mozzarella slices, basil leaves (I leave them whole) & finally the splashes of extra virgin olive oil & balsamic vinegar.
Close the assembled sandwich & cook it either on a panini maker OR on a grill pan with a weight on the sandwich (another pan or heavy plate) until the mozzarella is melted.
It is DELISH.

BTW, the month's Book Club read, which I highly recommend, was:
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a fascinating story. It's non-fiction & 3/4 of the way through, I got slightly bored with the scientific part (although, written for the layman, me, to understand & it was indeed comprehendible). I wanted more of Deborah than of the actual HeLa cell history but am in awe of what the Lacks family went through. It terrifies me how little we've seemingly come from the '50s too, in many aspects, when Henrietta's cells were taken from her. Makes me wonder what my doctor does with my "bewildering" crohns saga & records.
