Eggplant, the bulbous purple vegetable, is a delightful oddity. The name alone raises questions and can turn up noses. However, it has a soft, creamy texture and a neutral flavor that allows accompanying flavors to take the spotlight. Called “caviar” this recipe is as delicious and special as the real thing.
While a sandwich is the perfect home for the classic BLT, this variation mixes all the ingredients together and serves them up in neat little toast cups. Assemble all the ingredients, mix at the last minute and serve.
Include pesto and red peppers to make the perfect grilled cheese sandwich.
