Grilled eggplant panini is a very tasty sandwich recipe. Instead of the typical meat, this vegetarian sandwich recipe uses a slice of roasted eggplant.
To make the grilled eggplant panini sandwich, put the slice of cheese on a bread, add grilled or roasted eggplant, add another slice of cheese and top with another slice of bread, then cook on a hot panini sandwich press. If you don’t own a panini press, you can just cook the sandwich on a hot frying pan on both sides.
This grilled eggplant panini sandwich is so tasty and filling that you won’t miss the meat! This eggplant sandwich is a perfect summer recipe when yummy eggplants are in season. On the picture above, I served the grilled eggplant sandwich with the side dish of rice with green peas.
