Here's what you can do to prevent sogginess: slice YOUNG eggplant crosswise 3/8" thick, place on rack and salt both sides. Allow to sit for several hours, then dab off excess moisture w/a paper towel. Eggplant is just like a sponge so to prevent more sogginess VERY LIGHTLY brush on olive oil; broil on a rack until very nicely browned on both sides. Young eggplant skin is more tender, so you won't have to peel it. Use fruits that are about 2 1/2" at their widest part. I needed 2-3 to make four sandwiches. This gives a really meaty texture without sogginess OR being overdone. To sweeten the loud garlic, after dicing it, I cooked it in a bit of olive oil until soft (do not brown or it will turn bitter), then mashed it before adding to the mayo.
Mmmmm! I really liked this recipe. I did change a few things though. First of all I would peel the eggplant. The skin on mine got a little tough after it was cooked and slice the eggplant into 1/2-inch slices. When they're too thin they do come out crispy! Instead of brushing with oil I sprayed the slices with cooking spray and dusted with salt and pepper. I used light mayo and reduced the amount to cut calories. I added 1/4-1/2 tsp garlic powder instead of the garlic cloves because I was short on time. It was delicious!
Truly the most delicious sandwich ever. I cut the eggplant about 1/2" thick and grilled it on a charcoal grill and I used Portuguese rolls. My husband and I couldn't stop raving about them. This sandwich now has a place of honor in my repetoire.
These are the worst! The eggplant was so soggy, it reminded me of guacamole. You should try instead to microwave the eggplant for about 1 1/2 minutes, or until the centers are cooked, then melt margarine in a large skillet over medium heat and fry them until lightly toasted on each side. That's how it's done in the eggplant burger recipe on this site that's fantastic! They come out perfectly. If the eggplant hadn't been ruined, this recipe might've been good.
I make this almost every week! One of the best veggie meals. Even my carnivore of a husband said that he liked it! OMG! Thank you for such a great recipe! A few changes: Soak in basalmic first....just grill. I use goat cheese instead of feta.
ooooh this did not turn out for me! It was so disaterous that we have decided to enjoy eggplant when ordered out from now on. But for those of you who have more kitchen success I'd suggest reducing the broiling time a bit my eggplant was a bit... excessively crispy:)
THIS IS SUCH AN AWESOME SANDWHICH!MY WHOLE FAMILY LOVES IT.I'VE ALREADY MADE THEM TWICE AND CAN'T WAIT TO MAKE THEM AGAIN FOR MY FRIEND'S.I USED FRESH JAPANESE EGGPLANT FROM MY GARDEN.EVERY THING ELSE REMAINED ACCORDING TO RECIPE.
