Special Eggplant Subs Recipe

Special Eggplant Subs Recipe

The idea for this unique sandwich was inspired by a light eggplant dish I made for hot summer evenings. I decided to use the golden eggplant slices as a base for sandwiches. My family goes wild for the delicious combination of toppings. -Marie Maffucci, New Rochelle, New York
