Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cut eggplant into 1/2 inch slices.
  • Sprinkle liberally with salt and set in a colander to drain for 20 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, chopped basil, chopped oregano and pepper.
  • Let mixture stand 15 minutes.
  • Prepare a medium hot fire in the grill.
  • Rinse the eggplant under cold water and pat the slices dry with paper towels.
  • Brush both the eggplant and tomato slices on both sides with the flavored oil.
  • Grill the eggplant, turning occasionally and brushing with more oil, until tender and nicely browned, about 15 minutes.
  • About 2 minutes before the eggplant is done, brush the cut sides of the rolls with the flavored oil and toast on the grill.
  • Add the tomato slices and grill, again brushing them with flavored oil until they begin to soften, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Assemble the sandwiches by layering the grilled eggplant, cheese and tomato slices on the bottom half of the rolls.
  • Season with salt and pepper if desired.
  • Top each sandwich with a couple of sprigs of basil then cover with top of roll.
  • Enjoy!
