My daughter has an Italian boyfriend..He loves all kinds of Italian food….well quite frankly we all do….so when I asked him to give me some of his favorite dinner ideas..(he and my daughter eat dinner here often)..he said Eggplant Parmesan sandwiches of course!! Doesn’t that look delicioso? OF COURSE IT DOES… this recipe is so easy and filling! GF Eggplant Parmesan Sandwiches ingredients: EVOO 2 large eggplants ( cut into 1/4 inch thick rounds) it made 7 sandwiches sea salt (sprinkled on the eggplant) mozzarella cheese (cut in thin slices) Fresh basil (cut in thin slices) Finely shredded Parmesan ( to sprinkle on at the very end) GF hamburger buns or focaccia bread, or rustic Italian bread Preheat oven to 400; then cut eggplant into rounds ..I cut the eggplant length wise in half and then used a biscuit cutter like this one to make round pieces..then cut them in half because the rounds were so thick.. baste eggplant with EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)*thats Kenny’s actual hand..haha and sprinkle with some sea salt THEN put on a cookie sheet and bake for about 15/20 minutes cut some fresh basil into long skinny strips to add to sandwich at the end cut mozzarella into neat thin pieces perfect for melting… here’s a pic of the ingredients..then turn the oven to 425 broil Time to load up the bread(which has been drizzled with EVOO) by adding the already baked eggplant rounds..
