Eggplant Sandwiches


Roasted eggplant in a French roll with feta cheese, basil and garlic mayonnaise. This was my favorite sandwich of all time, adapted from a cafe at the University of California, Irvine.

  • 1 small eggplant, halved and sliced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 (6 inch) French sandwich rolls

  • 1 small tomato, sliced

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Brush eggplant slices with olive oil, and place them on a baking sheet or broiling pan. Place the pan about 6 inches from the heat source. Cook under the broiler for 10 minutes, or until tender and toasted.

  2. Split the French rolls lengthwise, and toast. In a cup or small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise and garlic. Spread this mixture on the toasted bread. Fill the rolls with eggplant slices, tomato, feta cheese and basil leaves.
