Crostini con Melanzane Grigliata e Pecorino

Eggplant and pecorino cheese crostini

Crostini con Melanzane Grigliata e Pecorino has a long history rooted in Italian culinary traditions. Crostini are a popular Italian appetiser that typically consists of small slices of grilled or toasted bread topped with a variety of ingredients such as cheese, meats, vegetables, and spreads. Melanzane grigliata, or grilled eggplant, is a common ingredient in Italian cuisine and is frequently used in appetizers, side dishes, and pasta dishes. Pecorino is a type of hard cheese made from sheep’s milk that is commonly used in Italian cooking.

Serves 6-8

2 eggplants

6-8 slices of Italian or French bread, about ½ in thick

1 cup coarsely grated medium aged pecorino cheese (or parmesan)

extra virgin olive oil

Slice the eggplant fairly thinly and grill in an iron pan until both sides are brown (about 5 minutes on each). Place grilled eggplant slices into a dish and season with the extra virgin olive oil. Toast the sliced bread on a grill or toaster oven. Once done, drizzle the bread with olive oil, add the eggplant slices and the pecorino, then place in a hot oven so that the cheese melts. Serve immediately and enjoy!
