Jaynes Your Way

Eggplant sandwich

21 July, 2010

Knowing what your friend had for dinner is only boring if what they had for dinner is boring. Monday night was "something new" for dinner at the Jayneses. We got this idea from Real Simple. This warm, crispy eggplant around goat cheese and ripe tomatoes will be added to our regular rotation.

Ingredients: Eggs, flour, eggplant, tomato, spinach, goat cheese, breadcrumbs, basil, salt and pepper.

  1. Slice the eggplants into half inch circular pieces. Coat slices in flour then dredge in eggs before coating in bread crumbs. (In lieu of Panko we crushed up wholewheat crackers then added salt and pepper.)
  2. Fry breaded eggplant slices in canola oil 2-3 minutes on each side or golden brown.
  3. Remove from oil and place on paper towels to soak up excess grease
  4. Create sandwich by placing on cooked slice on a plate. Add Spinach then crumble goat cheese for the next layer. Sprinkle basil on the cheese. Add a slice of tomato. Top with another eggplant slice and some salt.
  5. Enjoy with a nice white wine.

Thanks, Keri. Meets my two requirements for a good sandwich: easy to make and delicious.

Eric and I saw that recipe and thought it looked yummy. The picture you took looks just like theirs! We made the heirloom pasta last week which was on a page near the eggplant sandwich and it was great- very light and fresh tasting.
