Grilled Eggplant Provolone Summer Recipe...

What would summer recipes be without having a meal that consist only of vegetables and one that you can grow in your own garden!

I have only tried fried eggplant before so I'm looking forward to trying it grilled, especially with a recipe that includes provolone!

Recipe Ingredients:

• 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

• 3 tablespoons olive oil

• 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

• 4 small eggplants, cut in half lengthwise

• 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

• Freshly ground black pepper

• 1/2 pound deli-style thick-sliced mild provolone

Directions:

• "Whisk together the vinegar, oil, and oregano and brush on the cut sides of the eggplants.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Preheat a gas grill to high;

adjust the heat to medium after 15 minutes.

(If cooking over charcoal, allow the coals to burn until they are covered with gray ash.) Grill the eggplants cut-side down until browned, about 5 minutes.

Flip the eggplants and top each half with a slice of provolone.

Grill 3 minutes more or until the cheese is bubbly.

Top with some Grilled Salsa."

• "Rainy-Day Method: Prepare the eggplants as described above.

Heat the broiler and cook the eggplants about 6 inches from the heat, cut-side down, for 5 minutes.

Turn and broil cut-side up for about 3 minutes.

Add the provolone and broil about 3 minutes more."
