SIDE NOTES:

~ This sandwich was first made for me many years ago by my Dad, who often made it w/ his fire-fighter buddies during down-time at Brooklyn’s fire station 253. So juicy & delicious.

~ Don’t cut the eggplant rounds too thin, as they’ll shrink quite a bit while cooking.

 For those with various food restrictions, this recipe falls into the following categories:

Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Grain Free, Vegan, Raw

If eating gluten free, be sure to use a certified gluten free bread. If eating dairy free, omit the cheese.

~  Personally, we don’t use cheese with this, as to us, it distracts from the fresh, flavorful veggies, but depending on your taste buds – you might prefer it cheese-y!

~ Here, I served it with a side of YOGURT-CUCUMBER-DIP for the raw veggies.  (We also like to dip the sandwich in there too.)
