  • 1

Expert Tips

  • Select eggplant that has a smooth peel with no blemishes or soft spots. A small young eggplant has a tender peel that doesn't require removal.
  • To reduce the fat in each serving of these sandwiches by about 9 grams, use reduced-fat mozzarella cheese and omit the olive oil. Instead, spritz the vegetables with olive oil-flavor or regular nonstick cooking spray.
  • Toast the bread on the grill, watching it carefully and turning once, until it is light golden brown.
  • These sandwiches make nice melts. Arrange them on a sheet of heavy-duty foil and place it on the grill. Close the grill and heat it just until the cheese is melted.
