Mom's Marinated Eggplant Recipe!

Mom made great eggplant sandwiches on Italian Bread.  She cleaned, dipped in beaten egg and lightly sauteed the sliced  eggplant in olive oil, patted them a bit to remove some of the oil and alternated grated green peppers with the eggplant, garlic, mint and then added a small amount of good Red wine vinegar.  She would refrigerate until she was ready to make her sandwich.  A great dish for summer using fresh eggplant!

I like mine eaten as a side.  It is great with fish or chicken.

1 eggplant sliced and skinned removed
1 egg beaten
1 large green pepper (grated on large side of grater)
1 clove minced garlic
pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
sprig fresh mint (optional)
olive oil
Red Wine vinegar( approx. 1/4 cup)

Note:  This sandwich is wonderful on Italian bread.  Thick crusty Italian for sure.

 Happy Baking and Cooking from my kitchen to yours,
