  • Eggplant Meets George Foreman

    After much experimenting and perseverance, I have discovered how to make perfect straight eggplant. Four minutes at low setting on Foreman Grill.

    I peel the eggplant (although you could leave the skin on if you prefer), cut into about 3/4-inch slices, soak in salty water for about an hour, pat dry, brush on olive oil, sprinkle VERY lightly with garlic salt (or powder), pepper and just a few grains of sea salt, put that side down on the preheated grill, then repeat the oil etc. on the other side, put the lid down and wait 4 minutes. No bitterness, perfect texture. I'm in love.

    ooohhh.... sounds yummy! I love eggplant

    i'll have to write that down to use if my garden successfully produces eggplant for me this coming summer

    the few summers i have tried growing it happened to be short, cool summers- just the opposite of what i needed

          I too love my GF and eggplant . I cut up my eggplant into slices, brush olive oil on both sides, put in my little GF lower lid and cook till done. I eat them as fast as I cook them. A veggie dish is a meal for me. I sprinkle a little salt and fresh cracket black pepper on them when finished cooking.

          Psa 50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

          2Ti 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

          Too Blessed to be depressed!!!!

            ~ Good ideas, here's one of mine.

            When I'm fasting from meats & sweets.

            I do a vegie lazz.
            Instead of meat I use slices of young eggplant
            with slices of portabella musrooms, lots of cheese & sauce.
            Man what a great change! I don't miss the meat at all.
            As a matter of fact I prefer it way now! Only wish my husband did
