The Sargento Cheese is not vegetarian. It contains Enzymes and Rennet which comes from a baby cows stomach lining. There are however brands that are made w/o. For example, Horizon Organics Dairy makes their cheese without the use of Rennet and makes it suitable for Vegetarians like myself.

I haven't tried this, but I'm wondering if the eggplant gets soft and flavorful with that method of cooking. It kind of looks, from the pictures, as if it has retained the tough, cardboard like texture of raw eggplant. I like mine cooked mushy and savory. I also think garlic is a perfect complement for eggplant.

If you like it more tender, you could sprinkle the slices liberally with salt, place them in a bowl for a half-hour or so, then rinse, drain and pat dry. Then proceed. This should help. I also like to cut my eggplants 'plank-style' -- lengthwise -- for sammies.

Thanks for the lengthwise tip. Why does you name say "Pro" and mine says "Bozo"?

substitute the eggplant with portabello mushroom, or even better replace the bread with the mushroom and include the eggplant.

OOooo, or BOTH on a really good, thick, hearty bread. Love it!

Omnomnomnomnom. Knowing me, though, (I'm quite picky) I'd take a bite and throw up. ;D

Why bother to post that? Do we really need to know about your inability to enjoy a wide range of comestibles, or is this a cry for attention? I don't understand people who only post comments in order to denigrate something they have no intention of even trying. It's as though they're compelled to say, "Look how special I am, I'm picky!" It's the 'princess/pea' syndrome, imho. I just wish people would keep their negativity to themselves. Putting a 'winky-grin' after it doesn't undo the inherent ugliness. Pass the brain-bleach, please.
