Eggplant Bruschetta

Little ‘ole me has the most popular eggplant recipe on Pinterest… EGGPLANT BRUSCHETTA! Let me tell you, I never expected this kind of reaction. But, I am flattered. ๐Ÿ™‚ Since launching this blog, I have become an independent consultant with The Pampered Chef. You can contact me here if you would like any Pampered Chef products or are looking to have a catalog show. Back to the Eggplant Brushchetta… The finished product…

layer 1- Sliced eggplant

layer 2- chopped roma tomatoes, crushed garlic, basil, and olive oil tossed in a bowl

layer 3- mozz cheese, parm cheese, feta cheese

topped with “Blaze” balsamic glaze… any balsamic vinegar will do, or none at all.. it’s mainly for the pretty look.

I cooked them out on the grill on a grill pan. First I cooked each side of the eggplant until it was slightly browned on medium-high with the lid closed.

Then once I flipped them, I added layers 2 and 3. Didn’t take very long and was fairly easy. The result, a low carb, vegetarian meal without heating up my kitchen! During the winter you could also broil them in the oven. I prefer pretty much anything on the grill.

    This is an inspired answer to the question, “What to do with the eggplant I bought at the farmer’s market?”

    I can’t wait to try this, I really like eggplant. In fact I had eggplant parmesian last night at an Italian restaurant in Hudson Wisc. it was very good and when I was eating I was thinking about other ways it would be good!

      It’s really easy! You can also put it on a toasted roll and eat as a sandwich. Sometimes I layer other veggies too.

  5. Diane says:

    Did you salt or put any oil on the eggplant before grilling?

  6. Toni says:

    Looking forward to trying.

    I love eggplant but its really a chore to prepare them, especially for eggplant parmesian..but its a great ‘oil eater’…otherwise I find them too dry. How was the texture for this recipe?

    • Create Grace says:

      Texture is similar to grilled zucchini

    • Angela says:

      The texture of the eggplant will change from its spongy texture to a squishy, soft texture when it is cooked. None of the sponginess will remain if it is cooked through. Leaving the skin on assists in holding it together.

    • Janet says:

      You don’t need a lot of oil for eggplant Parmesan-bread them and lay in a pan sprayed with olive oil Pam, brush the tops with a little oil and bake or broil instead of frying! Much less fat and calories! When they are brown enough, layer as normal for the parm.

  10. Karin says:

    What are the quantities on the ingredients?

  11. Jacqueline says:

    Looks delicious. Love eggplant anything so I cannot wait to try out this great recipe. Thanks.

  12. susan goldhahn says:

    do you peel them first?

    • Lynn says:

      From looking at the picture, I’ll assume that the eggplant isn’t peeled when I make this dish.

      • Create Grace says:

        Correct. It holds it together. Now, depending on your preference you can cut off the skin and not eat that part after cooking if you don’t like the taste.

  13. jabber says:

    For less soggy eggplant, you can sprinkle the slices with salt on both sides and leave them on paper towel or in a colander for an hour. Rinse them and pat dry and you will have a firmer eggplant to deal with. This works especially well if you aren’t grilling them.

  14. What a DELICIOUS great idea – thanks so very much for sharing!! No bread needed, I LOVE IT!! I like to bake my eggplant slices vs frying them, I’ve got this ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Marie says:

  16. Ramona says: I am making them right now for the first time for my dinner. Can’t wait to see
    how they turn out.

  17. Marina says:

    THIS WAS INCREDIBLE!!!!! I LOVED IT and so did the rest of the family!!! THANK YOU!!!!

    I brush mine with ghee before grilling and add a small swipe of pesto sauce
