On a recent trip to Italy I had a sandwich that was so delicious and looked so easy to make that I made a mental note to replicate once back home. Here goes:
- 4/6 slices of lightly toasted brown bread
- one aubergine cut in thin slices and seasoned with salt and pepper
- some frying/grilling oil
- brie cheese, cut in thin slices
- pancetta or ham
Fry the thin slices of aubergine until golden brown on each side.
On a bed of rucola spread two buttered toasted slices of bread and cover with pancetta/ham, brie and the freshly grilled or fried aubergine slices. The latter will nicely soften the cheese.
