Here is a great recipe for a gourmet sandwich. Of course, you must like eggplant. I’ve been eating this unusual vegetable since I was a kid. Eggplant parmasian was one of my family’s favorite meals.
Here is my recipe:
1 large eggplant
1 large red pepper
1 red onion sliced
1 whole bulb of garlic
1 tablespoon of butter
Fresh Italian bread or sour dough rolls
Slice your eggplant and red onion in about ¼ inch pieces and place it a bowl and marinate with balsamic vinegar. Let it marinate for about ½ hour or longer, while you are getting all the other parts of your sandwich ready.
First, slice off the top of your bulb of garlic and put it in a roasting pan. Then cut your red pepper in half and lay open side down in your pan. Pour some olive oil over the garlic top and the pepper. Broil until the red peppers becomes a little black and charred, this doesn’t take long, so watch closely. Take the peppers out and lower the heat to about 350 degrees and leave the garlic in the oven until it becomes soft. This usually takes a little longer in the oven.
When you’re done broiling the garlic and red pepper use the same pan and broil the eggplant and sliced onions. Watch carefully and don’t let it get too charred. Let the bulb of garlic cool before you take each clove in your fingers and squeeze until the clove pops out, and then mash them in a small bowl. You’re almost finished!
Slice your sandwich rolls and spread both sides with butter. Broil your rolls until they start to become toasted. Then take the smashed garlic and spread over both sides of the rolls. Add a little mayo and your eggplant, roasted pepper and onion and you now have a gourmet sandwich you can brag about.
