Meatless Monday: Open Faced Eggplant Parm Sandwiches

I'm a huge fan of meatless meals.  They are good for the environment, good for the wallet, and a great way to make a vegetable the center of the meal.

This Monday, the focus was Eggplant.  What a freaky looking vegetable.  With the Eggplant, I made open-faced Eggplant Parm Sandwiches.

This meal is great because it's really quick and easy to make, and super tasty!

1 Eggplant
Marinara sauce
Mozzarella Cheese
Parmesan Cheese
Bread crumbs
1 Egg
really good bread

Chop up the eggplant into 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch slices
 Whisk the egg in a bowl, and spread some breadcrumbs on a plate.
  Dip the eggplant in the egg and then place it on the plate of breadcrumbs to coat each side.
Fry them up in a little bit of olive oil.

Once they are cooked through (a few minutes on each side) top with shredded mozzarella cheese.  Let the cheese melt on top for a minutes or two, then top with marinara sauce.
Toast your bread.  When the bread is toasted, top it with the eggplant, and sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese and Voila!
 I ate mine with a side of baby spinach and some Italian salad dressing.
