Eggplant Parmesan Sandwich

16 Feb

If you make the recipe before – Potato and Fried Eggplant Pastelon – and you have leftover fried eggplant, what do you do with it?????

Make an eggplant sandwich!!!!!   But what would make the ultimate eggplant sandwich – an Eggplant Parmesan Sandwich!!!!



Whole wheat hoagie bread bun 
2-3 fried eggplant slices – check out this recipe on how to batter and fry the eggplant
2-3 fresh mozzarella cheese slices
Grated Parmesan cheese
Tomato slices
3-4 Lettuce leaves
Egg-less mayonnaise 
  1. Spread the mayonnaise on both bread halves.
  2. Stack the fried eggplant slices, sprinkle some grated Parmesan, mozzarella slices on the bottom half.
  3. Place in a toaster oven or broiler for a few minutes for the cheese to melt a little.
  4. Add the tomatoes and lettuce.  Top with remaining bread slice…  (like I need to tell you how to build a sandwich, huh?)
  5. Press sandwich for all the ingredients to come together.

This is how I made this sandwich when I was veeeeeeery hungry the other day.  But now thinking about it, it would really make it an Eggplant Parm sandwich if I had added a bit of tomato sauce before adding the cheeses.  In this case, the tomato and lettuce would be optional.

    Looks terrific! And it was probably a good idea to go with the tomatoes rather than tomato sauce – I tried to make an eggplant parm panini a few weeks ago and I found the sauce made the bread too soggy. Your approach works better!

    I would have never thought to have eggplant like this! Sounds tasty!
