Grilled Eggplant Stacker Sandwich

  • Author: Krista


  • 2 slices of fresh bread, lightly toasted
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 small eggplants (skin removed if you prefer)
  • 1 C ricotta cheese
  • 1 C marinara sauce – warmed
  • 4 slices of tomato
  • 4 slices fresh mozzarella
  • Salt/pep/olive oil


  1. Peel and slice eggplant, season both sides with salt and pepper. Lightly oil grill pan and grill eggplant until browned on both sides.
  2. In a small bowl mix ricotta, a large pinch of salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil together.
  3. Peel the garlic clove and rub on the warm toast.
  4. Assemble the stacker. Spread ricotta on toast, then spoon a little marinara on the ricotta, layer on the eggplant, tomato and mozzarella.
  5. Place under the broiler until the cheese is browned and melted.
  6. Drizzle with thick balsamic vinegar (Note, I forgot the drizzle until after I took the photo). It adds a nice flavor so if you have it I would definitely recommend it.
