Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 8 slices (1/2-inch thick) eggplant
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pesto to taste
  • 8 slices (1/4-inch thick) fresh mozzarella
  • 4 whole fresh basil leaves
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet. Dip the eggplant in egg and fry the eggplant for about 3 to 4 minutes a side or until tender.

Set the eggplant slices on a baking pan and season each slice with salt and pepper. Spread each slice of eggplant with pesto and top with a slice of mozzarella cheese. Bake for 5 minutes or until the mozzarella melts.

Set one eggplant slice on top of the other if you wish, to form more of a towering sandwich and garnish with fresh basil leaves.
