Catherine's Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Eggplant, Peppers, Basil, Cheese -Oh my!

Eggplants sliced and brushed with olive oil
Sweet bell pepper cored and either halved or quartered depending on how big they are
Optional:  Hot pepper if you want some heat
Fresh basil leaves
Cheese of choice, sliced - American, provolone, mozzarella, gruyere or whatever one you like
2 pieces of bread for each person

          Have the sliced cheese and rinsed basil leaves ready.
Grill the eggplant and peppers until done, with some bit of charring for flavor.
Toast the bread.

          Assemble while hot.  Start with one bread slice, layer with cheese, a layer of eggplant, some basil, layer of cheese, layer of peppers, some basil, layer of cheese - you can really stack these - end with last slice of bread.  Return to grill if you want to melt the cheese, turning once - it will take only a minute or so on each side to melt the cheese slightly - don't over due it or you will lose the cheese into the coals.

          Slice and enjoy,  Serve with sliced apples.
