This week my local produce guy, Max, had eggplants 3 for $1.00. Of course I couldn't pass that up, especially since they were local and organic. So for lunch I made a grilled eggplant panini with fresh mozzarella, ricotta and roast red peppers. I must say it was good!
4 tbs olive oil
1 small eggplant pealed and sliced
2 tbs ricotta
4 slices fresh mozzarella
1 roasted red peppers ( I used bottled red peppers)
8 green olives sliced
2 Catawba rolls
Brush eggplant slices with oil and grill for 2 minutes then turn and grill 1 minute more.
Spread 1 tbs ricotta on each roll then 2 slices mozzarella, 1 slice red pepper, 2 slices eggplant, and green olives. Place sandwich in panini press and grill until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes.
