Grilled Cheese and Eggplant Sandwich
Today for lunch I made the yummiest sandwich. It was a grilled cheese with grilled eggplant. I'm trying to eat a couple vegetarian meals a week.
The eggplant was from the frozen grilled veggies package I got at Trader Joe's.
All I had to do was nuke them until they were warm and soak up some of the moisture with a paper towel.
Then I gave them a good sprinkling of sea salt and ground pepper. I placed the eggplant and a couple slices of Havarti cheese on my multigrain sourdough bread.
Topped it off with another slice of bread and grilled it in a pan with some butter until golden brown on both sides. You want to cook the sandwich over pretty low heat for a longer period of time or your bread will burn before your cheese melts.
