I loves me some eggplant. Charlie is kinda like, “Meh.” Lucky for him, I don’t like storebought eggplant, so he only has to eat it during the summer. All summer. Every week. At least once.
Also lucky for him, I’ve found ways that he likes. This way, he really, really likes.
Dip the slices in melted vegan margarine (or butter). Dredge the slices in seasoned bread crumbs, Panko, or (my favorite) crushed cornbread stuffing mix. Fry in more margarine or butter until browned on both sides.
Spread salad dressing (yuk) or mayonnaise (yay!) on bread. Put a slice of cheese on (this was Havarti), and layer on the eggplant. Top with another spread slice of bread.
Toast the sandwich in the skillet until the cheese is soft.
BOY, this was good!
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character presents something another character doesn’t ordinarily like in a way that the second character likes, after all.
