Grilled Eggplant Parmesan Focaccia
Halve bread horizontally. (Reserve one half for another use.) Brush eggplant slices with oil.Advertisement
For a charcoal or gas grill, grill bread, cut side down and eggplant slices on the greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium-hot heat 4 minutes (check bread after 3 minutes and remove if it's toasted). Turn eggplant slices. Remove bread. Add tomato slices to grill. Grill eggplant and tomato 3 to 5 minutes more or until eggplant is tender and tomatoes are slightly charred. Meanwhile, sprinkle mozzarella cheese over toasted side of bread; if needed to melt cheese, return bread to grill, placing it cheese side up. Cut bread into four wedges.
To serve, spoon 2 tablespoons marinara sauce onto each bread portion. Top each with an eggplant slice and a tomato slice. Top with basil; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and pepper.
