This is a fantastic recipe. The only changes I made was to add more garlic to the mayo mix, and I used a little cayenne pepper sprinkled on the eggplant. I'll definitely make this again.

I don't care for mushrooms or eggplant, and I need a meat. I used grilled chicken sprinkled with cajun seasoning in place of the eggplant and just left out the mushroom. Very flavorful.
I loved this sandwich, though with a couple of alterations. I don't have a grill so I roasted the eggplant and portobello. I also added red and yellow peppers for color and a little sweetness. I roasted the eggplant and peppers for about 45 minutes and added the mushrooms in the last 10 minutes. I ditched the mayonnaise and used mashed avocado spread (guacamole works too) instead. I also added a slice of melted Gouda (I would have preferred Havarti but couldn't find any where I live). So juicy and delicious. Served with a cup of soup on the side, this makes a great winter meal.
You might be thinking, how good can a vegetable sandwich be? Well, with this recipe its amazing! Even my meat and potatoes loving husband thought it was delicious :)
I've changed this recipe some to my taste. I put it on ciabatta bread with Bruchetta and cilantro, sometimes one slice of swiss cheese. It is the best sandwich I ever ate! I want to eat it every day for lunch and mostly do! I steam the egg plant and mushrooms.
