Grilled Eggplant, Bacon & Tomato Sandwiches with Basil Mayonnaise

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 large tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette dressing
  • 2 small eggplants, sliced lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 4 slices country-style bread (3/4 inch thick, from an 8-inch round loaf)
  • 4 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled (optional)

Directions

  1. Combine Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise with basil in small bowl with wire whisk; set aside.
  2. Combine tomatoes with 1/4 cup dressing in medium bowl. Season, if desired, with salt and pepper; set aside.
  3. Toss eggplant with remaining 1/4 cup dressing and grill, turning once, until golden brown and just cooked through, about 8 minutes.

  5. Evenly spread remaining Mayonnaise mixture on each slice of toasted bread, then evenly top with grilled eggplant and tomato relish. Sprinkle bacon.
