Charred Eggplant with Sausage

  

Well I had a handy eight pack of eggplants that had been hanging around for a while and while creating the grocery list this afternoon, I also found a couple of Italian sausages…hmmm, says I.

  
 

So I cut the washed eggplants in half and tossed them in olive oil and some salt and pepper. The Hubs put them on the grill and proceeded with his cocktail and scouting of backyard wildlife. I directed “char the s_ _ _ out of them” While he did the aubergines, I browned the sausage with some basil and garlic. Once cooked, I spun it once or twice in the cuisinart and added toasted panko. See?

   
 

Here’s the aubergines, fresh off the grill. 

  

 Nicely charred as directed. Then I flipped them cut side up and layered the sausage/breadcrumb mixture all over. I added some torn mozzarella and grated Parmesan and bopped it back in the grill to get all melty… 

 

  
You can scoopy doop out the inside of the eggplant , now mixed with sausage and cheese. Oh and there were two really hot peppers in there for flavor only!
