Healthy Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Monday September 30 2013

Who doesn't love a grilled cheese sandwich?  It often does bring back great childhood memories, that's for sure!  However, I found a great healthier grilled cheese option on Mind Body Green, and while we still have this lovely weather, why not have a BBQ tonight?  Let me know what you think of this recipe if you get a chance to try it -- unfortunately, I won't be able to personally let you know my thoughts on this healthy version of the grilled cheese sandwich because I'm terribly allergic to eggplant!!

 

Ingredients: (makes 2 “sandwiches”)

 

  • 1 large eggplant, sliced vertically into 6 (¼” or slightly thicker) slices
  • 8 slices of fresh mozzarella - ¼” or slightly thicker (or cheese substitute such as mozzarella sheese)
  • 8 slices of fresh ripe tomato - ¼” thick

Directions:

  1. Place eggplant slices on a hot indoor or outdoor grill that’s been brushed with a bit of avocado oil.  There isn't a need to oil the eggplant because it has enough moisture.
  2. Grill on both sides until the eggplant is cooked through, but still firm and the grill lines are defined; approximately 3 to 4 minutes on each side − depending on how hot your grill is!
  3. Remove the eggplant slices from the grill and set them aside.
  4. Cut the tomatoes and cheese.
  5. When the eggplant is cool enough to handle, start with one slice and top with 2 or three slices of cheese, (depending on how big your slices are) 2 slices of tomato, and then repeat.
  6. Top with a final slice of the eggplant.
  7. Place the "sandwich" in the oven (or back on the grill covered with foil) for approximately 3 to 4 minutes, or just until the cheese softens and begins to melt.
  8. Enjoy!
