I’m having more fun with all the fresh produce at our Farmers’ Market. Next time you’re at one grab an eggplant, slice it up thick, slather it with olive oil, grill it alongside some onions. Throw it on top of a slice of toasted sourdough bread, add some fresh basil leaves, a slice of fresh tomato, some mozzarella cheese, pop it under the broiler for a couple of minutes and you’ve got a great little dinner.

Served alongside the last of the Bobby Flay coleslaw.

What’s that you say? You think I should have ditched the mozzarella and basil and put the coleslaw on top? Ok, let’s take a vote, coleslaw or basil/mozzarella?

Open-Faced Eggplant Sandwich…

It’s What’s For Dinner.

  1. Oh no…basil and mozzarella- fo sho!! YUMMY.

  2. Yup, you sure do know how to make a sandwich! I do love coleslaw on a sammy, but who could turn down basil and mozzarella? Tough choice.

    • I’m thinkin keep that coleslaw on the side.

  3. Nice little sandwich there.

  4. Mmmmm… I love grilled eggplant! And with basil and mozzarella? Perfetto!

  5. These open-faced sandwiches are seriously awesome! Definitely a favorite way to enjoy eggplant.

  6. Such a beautiful sandwich…

    As is, no cole slaw needed. This is such a beautiful photo. I would buy that magazine.

  7. Hands down you did it right. Period. Looks beautiful too!

  8. Yummy. Just brought Aubergine back from the farmers market. They even had white ones.

    • Highlands Ranch didn’t have any white ones!!! Maybe next week.

  9. well done – I’m gonna make that, if my dern eggplants ever mature!

  10. Looks delicious – I’d pick the mozzarella and basil with the slaw on the side.

    • I agree, I just figured out a couple of my southern readers might think me crazy.

  11. I love these combinations so light and delicious! especially on a slice of really good bread.

  12. I absolutely abhor, detest and hate eggplant.

    Yet every time I see a picture and recipe like this, I think I would like it. I get tempted by eggplant parmesan, roasted eggplant, etc and then I try it and ICK! Blech!

    But this does really look good to me.

    • LOL Chris and to make you feel better, I don’t think it has any nutritional value. 😉

  13. I’ll have to go with the basil & mozz – yum!

  14. I haven’t used eggplant often. I love the simplicity and freshness of this sandwich!
