Amore e pianto, vivono accanto

Panini di Melanzane

one of my fave dishes is eggplant parmesan but not sometimes when i want am not patient enough so this is my cheat lol

you can add what ever you desire in between eggplant slices, i.e. prosciutto, tomato, and so on

is best to drain the eggplant slices before cooking to eliminate bitterness

* 2 eggplants
* 2 cups flour
* Mozzarella
* 2 cups lukewarm water
* Oil
* 1/2 teaspoon dried yeast
* Salt and pepper
* Fresh basil

Sift flour and yeast into a bowl. Add the lukewarm water and mix well. Let stand for 1/2 hour. Slice the eggplants, slice the mozzarella and chop the fresh basil. Fry the slices of eggplants until brown. Once they are browned you can let them drain on a paper towel. Season with salt, pepper and basil. Place one slice of mozzarella between two slices of eggplant and press together. Dip each “sandwich” into batter and fry in hot oil a few at a time until they are golden brown. Drain on a paper towel and “Buon appetito!”
