This sandwich was the perfect meal after a long work day. It was very easy and quick. I basted the mushrooms with balsamic vinegar and squeezed some fresh lemon on the eggplant before grilling. Also, melted some swiss cheese on the mushroom. Yum! Even my skeptical meat-eating husband loved it. Definitely will make again!

I thought it was okay as written but a lot better when I added Swiss cheese and Sriracha for spice. The garlic mayonnaise was quite enjoyable though. Adding baby spinach and tomatoes majorly contributed its nutritional value.
Since we don't have a grill, I roasted the eggplant, mushrooms and onions and it was divine!
I used balsamic vinegar instead of mayo and did it on a baguette with a slice of swiss. Nice alternative to my normal turkey and swiss!
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.
