This open-faced sandwich has too much flavor to keep enclosed between two slices of bread, so we’ve let it free and topped some toast with melted Sargento® Ultra Thin® Provolone Cheese Slices and a breaded slice of hearty eggplant, marinara sauce and fresh chopped basil for maximum Italian flavor.

Ingredients
  • 1 small eggplant, peeled
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko (coarse dried) breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 8 slices Sargento® Ultra Thin® Provolone Cheese Slices
  • 2 large slices rustic Italian bread, lightly toasted
  • 3/4 cup marinara sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil or Italian parsley
Directions
  1. Cut center of eggplant crosswise into four 1/2-inch thick slices. (If desired, reserve ends for another use.)
  2. Beat egg with 2 teaspoons water in a shallow bowl. Mix bread crumbs and oregano in another shallow bowl. Place flour in a plastic bag. Shake each eggplant slice in flour to coat lightly. Dip each side in egg mixture letting excess drip off. Coat both sides in breadcrumb mixture.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat until hot. Add eggplant; sauté 5 minutes per side or until golden brown and tender. Place cheese over eggplant; cover skillet and cook 1 minute or until cheese is melted. Place toast on two serving plates; place eggplant over toast.
  4. Heat marinara sauce in same skillet until hot; spoon over eggplant and top with basil.
