Another ingredient that I wasn’t familiar with until I started this food blog was eggplant. I know there are eggplants in Mexico because I remember seeing them at the markets, but I don’t remember ever having any dish made with them. The very first time I ate eggplant was almost 11 months ago when I made this lentil soup with fried eggplant. But after that I haven’t ventured into cooking anything else with them, until today.
I found a fat eggplant at the store yesterday and decided I wanted to try something new. So today I cut it in very thin slices, grill them and roll them with a slice of queso fresco and turkey bacon. I put them back on the grill and let the bacon cook. I drizzled some extra virgin olive oil, queso fresco crumbles, fresh chopped parsley and a dash of black pepper.
I was going to eat these for lunch, but I realized they would be better as a side dish or party snack. So if you are planning a Xmas or New Year’s party, these would make great snacks. They are going into the menu of the party I am planning. There is not a recipe for these because they are very simple to prepare, just grill the slices:
After stuffing them with the queso fresco and rolling wrapping them with bacon (I cut the bacon strips in half) grill them again until the bacon is cooked:
Serve with drizzled olive oil, queso fresco crumbles, black pepper and fresh parsley and enjoy:
I am sending this recipe to Lore’s event, Original recipes (Winter holiday version).
