Honey Balsamic Garlic Grilled Eggplant

I've missed cooking and posting so much! Tonight I finally put my foot down and told myself that I'm going to cook, photograph and post everything I make tonight for dinner. Its sort of a mish mash of stuff, but oh so good together. First up was this honey balsamic garlic grilled eggplant. I picked up an eggplant at the market today and didn't feel like making eggplant parmesan like I usually do. After searching the internet for inspiration, I found this eggplant recipe. I liked how the flavors sounded together and I had everything for it already at home.  I used my amazing george foreman grill to cook the eggplant slices. It worked great as a side dish and was delicious. Tune in tomorrow to find out what else I cooked up!

Honey Balsamic Garlic Grilled Eggplant
1 eggplant
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
salt 'n' peppa

1 Preheat grill. Slice eggplant into 1/2 inch slices.
2 Lay out a sheet of paper towels and arrange the eggplant slices in one layer and sprinkle with salt on both sides to release the bitter liquid. Let sit for 15 minutes  and dry both sides.
3 In a bowl, mix honey, olive oil, garlic, and balsamic and salt and pepper.
4 Dip both sides of the eggplant slices into the marinade and place on the grill until grill marks appear and the eggplant is soft and broken down.
5 Arrange grilled eggplant on a plate and sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy!

I don't get here, nearly enough, but every time I do, I leave with a number of recipes. So far, I want to make the hash browns and this fantastic eggplant. That is all I have looked at, so I can only imagine what I will leave with. Thanks for sharing with us.
