“A very different, tasty sandwich. Serve with some soup for a nice supper for two. I found this one in a complimentary copy of 'Real Simple' that I found in my mailbox.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly brush both sides of eggplant slices with olive oil and sprinkle with the salt; place the eggplant on a heated grill (indoor or outdoor) and cook until browned and softened, 4-5 minutes per side.
  2. Spread each slice of bread with 1 1/2 tsp of tomato paste; spread 2 slices with the goat cheese and top the cheese with the grilled eggplant slices; top the eggplant with a second slice of bread, tomato past side down; brush the outside of the sandwiches with more olive oil and then pat about 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan onto the outside of each piece of bread- the cheese should stick to the bread.
  3. Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet; place the sandwiches in the skillet and cook until the Parmesan has browned, about 4-5 minutes per side.
  4. Serve hot.
