These sandwiches are great when you're entertaining a crowd. They can be made ahead and just pop them in the oven before you're ready to serve.

I love a great hero, and this did not disappoint. I like how this sandwich is heated, so the cheese gets nice and toasty. These would be great if you're having a crowd over. Or, if you're heading out for the night, make one for the hubby. All he'll have to do is heat it up. Easy peasy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

12 Really Simple Eggplant Recipes


Eggplant is very underrated. If eaten raw, it’s bitter. But once it’s baked or fried, eggplant has a mild taste with a creamy texture.
