  • 1 medium eggplant cut into 1/2 in circles.

  • Lower heat to medium and in the same pan add 2 tablespoon of oil and roast the mushrooms, add salt and pepper.
  • Take the mushroom out and set aside.
  • Wipe the pan and start assembling your sandwiches.
  • Brush the bread on one side with oil or butter, this side is going to be out.
  • Add a tablespoon of the pizza sauce to the other side of the bread.
  • Then add a slice of cheese, then a slice of the eggplant.
  • Add about two tablespoons of the roasted mushrooms.
