Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl, combine garlic powder, pepper and salt. In another small bowl, combine half of the garlic powder mixture, tomatoes, 1 tablespoon oil, oregano, thyme and vinegar. Set aside.

  • Brush eggplant slices with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with the remaining garlic powder mixture.

  • For a charcoal grill, grill eggplant slices on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 6 to 8 minutes or just until tender and golden brown, turning once halfway through grilling and topping with the cheese slices for the last 2 minutes of grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place eggplant slices on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above, topping with cheese as directed.)

  • Place eggplant slices on top of toasted bread slices. Top with tomato mixture.
