Grilled Eggplant with Mozzarella and Turkey Sausage


Last night, I arrived home late, and was hungry... I needed to whip something up quick, yet healthy and light. 

I searched through my refrigerator and found Eggplant, Mozzarella and Turkey sausage. 

And 15 minutes later.... 


With the warmer weather this was the perfect dinner... light and fresh 
No more heavy dinners for me.. Winter is finished and so is the heavy, hearty meals.. 

This is quite easy to make. 

You will need 
1 eggplant sliced 
1 ball of Mozzarella - sliced 
 ( which you can buy at Trader Joe's or any Grocery Store in the states) 
1 package of Turkey Sausage 
( or pork sausage if you like) 
A bbq or a grill pan 
( I purchased a grill pan at Ikea for 10 bucks) 

Slice the eggplant and place on grill. Cook on each side for 5 minutes, and then turn over and cook on the other side.. 
While, the eggplant is cooking, in another pan cook the Turkey Sausage.. 
After the eggplant has cooked, place a small slice of Mozzarella on top of the eggplant and let it melt while still on the grill pan or bbq. 
When the sausage has finished, cut it up into small bite size pieces and place on top of the Eggplant and Mozzarella. 
To keep everything in place, I used toothpicks.. 

If you like you can drizzle Olive Oil once its finished, for a touch of flavor. 

A great Spring and Summer dish! 
Fresh, Healthy and Light 
AND 
budget friendly. 

I spent six euros for everything :) What a steal! Makes plenty too, even have left overs for todays lunch!
