This is the second installment of misadventures of a chef in training!

Eggplant Sandwiches!

This was actually super easy. I am going to break it down for you guys in different segments which will hopefully make it easier to read and understand. Also, I will make sure to put the cooking times in this time...duh!

Olive Oil
1/4 cup Mayo
2 Garlic Cloves minced
Fresh Basil
Hoagie Roll
Mozzarella Cheese

-Preheat oven to broiler
-Peel your eggplant, cut off the ends, slice length wise and then slice it in 1/2 inch slices
-Brush your eggplant slices with olive oil
-Place sliced eggplant in oven, 6 inches from the broiler, then broiler for 3 minutes
-Cut hoagie roll in half length wise and pop in the toaster oven until toasty
-While eggplant in in the oven and the hoagie roll is in the toaster, mix the minced garlic and mayo together in a small bowl and set aside
-Slice your tomatoes
-Chop your basil leaves
-Once your eggplant is finished cooking, turn off the oven, sprinkle mozzarella cheese on cooked eggplant and place back in off oven so it melts
-When the bread is toasted, put the mayo mixture on the top half of the bread, then layer your eggplant, tomatoes and fresh basil
-Eat it rather immediately because eggplant is very moist and can make your bread soggy if it just sits there

That sounds yummy, but it so wouldn't fly in my house because all the people I cook for believe in having at least one meat item with their good. Argh.
