Italian Eggplant Grilled Cheese
Italian eggplant grilled cheese sandwiches feature all the flavor of eggplant Parmesan, but take only 15 minutes to make. Plus they’re lactose-free, thanks to GO Veggie! smoked provolone slices!
1 small eggplant, peeled and thinly sliced
8 slices Italian sandwich bread
2 tablespoons butter or butter alternative
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
4 tablespoons sundried tomato pesto
- Heat a large skillet over a medium flame. Add the eggplant and cook 1-2 minutes per side, until soft. Remove from heat.
- Butter each slice of bread and sprinkle them with garlic powder. Flip 4 slices of bread over (so the buttered side is down) and top each with one slice of cheese and a quarter of the eggplant. Spread the sundried tomato pesto over the eggplant and top with the remaining cheese. Top with the remaining bread (buttered side up).
- Cook sandwiches over low heat for 3 minutes on each side, or until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted. If necessary, place a cover over the pan for the last 3 minutes to help the cheese melt.
