How to make it

  • Cut 16 round slices of eggplant, slightly thiner than 1/4 inch. Sprinkle salt lightly on both sides.
  • Cut the ham and cheese into rounds slightly smaller than the eggplant slices.
  • Place a round each of ham and cheese on an eggplant slice, season it very lightly with salt, and top with another eggplant slice.
  • Repeat with the remaining eggplant, ham, and cheese.
  • Spread flour on a large plate and dip the "sandwiches" in it on both sides, shaking off the excess.
  • Line a small baking sheet with a double layer of paper towels. Pour olive oil to a depth of about 3/4 inch in a medium size skillet and heat it over medium high heat to 360 degrees F.
  • Working in two batches, dip the eggplant "sandwiches" in the beaten egg on both sides and place them in the oil.
  • Fry the "sandwiches" until the batter is golden and the eggplant is soft, about 2 minutes per side, adjusting the heat so the oil doesn't burn.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the "sandwiches" to paper towels to drain.
  • Let the "sandwiches" cool for 3 to 4 minutes, then serve.
