As you can see, I left it in a little longer than it needed. But a little browned cheese never hurt anyone, right? At least it didn't have a charred taste. Have any of you tried this recipe? If you like eggplant and don't mind a bread-y meal, I highly recommend it!

Eggplant Mozzarella Melts
When I went to the store the other day, I bought a nice big eggplant to eat. I do this all the time...I buy an eggplant, then I don't know what to do with it so I just let it rot. Shame! I was determined not to let that happen this time, so I found a recipe that I thought Rhett might like (he's not crazy about eggplant). I stumbled upon this one from Martha Stewart: Eggplant and Mozzarella Melt. It was ridiculous how easy it was! I have tried breading and baking eggplant before and kind of failed, but it worked a lot better in rounds rather than long slices. Making a pizza-type dish with a french loaf is no new thing, but I never thought to do it with eggplant. Next time I buy eggplant, I might just tackle eggplant parm (one of my favs!)
