A sandwich is a universal meal comprised of anything you wish. It’s a way to literally break bread with good friends, which is what Sandwich at Home is all about. And, Trish Watlington just happens to be a good friend to break bread with.
Recipe by Trish Watlington
Salt eggplant on both sides and set aside on paper towels while you toast the bread.
Generously brush 2 slices of bread with olive oil. Place on a baking sheet under a broiler set on low. Broil 2 minutes on each side, checking frequently to prevent burning. Remove bread to warm plate or warming drawer.
Heat olive oil in medium pan. Wipe salt from eggplant, lay flat in pan over medium high heat and cook until lightly browned; turn and brown the other side. Remove to warm plate. Add onion and half the butter to the pan. Cook slowly until onions are wilted and golden. Remove to warm plate with eggplant. Add remaining butter to pan. Fry egg. Baste with butter until white is cooked but yolk is runny.
