    bacon wrapped grilled eggplant

    Shop Now


    you will need:
    • eggplant. hopefully this is obvious. chop it into 1" x 3" chunks as shown.
    • a 3:1 ratio of olive oil to apple cider vinegar. actual quantity just all depends on how much eggplant you have. you want a good amount so that the eggplant soaks it up.
    • ground thyme, to taste
    • black pepper
    • BACON! how many slices depends on how many pieces of eggplant you have.
    • a grill


    to make:
    • in a smaller bowl, combine the olive oil and ACV. slowly add the ACV to the olive oil, much like you have to do when making mayo. add pepper and thyme.
    • in a larger bowl, throw in the eggplant pieces. throw in the marinade and thoroughly coat the slices. if you do this in a tupperware container, you can put a lid on and shake it to make sure everything is coated. let marinade for at least half an hour.
    • wrap each piece of eggplant in a piece of bacon. secure the bacon ends by stabbing them with toothpicks.
    • put eggplant on grill, indirect heat. cook on each side until bacon is crispy.


    enjoy!

    Eggplant and bacon are already on my grocery list (they almost always are) as I fried eggplant slices in bacon grease the other night. I am trying this next time! Thank you!

    I've been trying to find other things to do with aubergine (as we call it in the UK) and this is a great idea! Thanks. I'll try it out.
