I was driving home straight from work and then my lovely friend S. called me if she could chill (or in other words.. EAT..) at my place tonight.. well of course!! But as I was busy prepping for the event tomorrow I totally forgot to do the groceries for myself!! BUT hey..I ain't The Cookteaser for nothing..So NO PROBLEMOOO!
Oke..you guys know I'm not a big meat lover.. but I was craving for bacon yesterday (I know.. crazy right?!) so I still had some bacon left in my fridge and some eggplant... I decided to mix all my leftovers together and it turned out GREAT! scroll down for my to die for 'left-over-meal'
Ingredients for 2 fabulous looking girls:
- 1 eggplant (sliced in rounds)
- a bit a goatcheese
- some sundried tomatoes ( chopped in pieces)
- some crushed walnuts
- some mint leaves
- some smoked bacon (dutch transl. ontbijt spek will do)
* there's no need to use salt, WHY? well because the bacon and goatcheese are salty enough.
What to do?
Grill the eggplant on both sides until you'll see the black grill 'lines'. Spread the eggplant over a plate. Crumble the goatcheese in tiny bits using your hands and spread them evenly over the eggplant.
To bake the bacon crispy you don't need any oil, just wait till the pan is super hot and then bake them until they turn into a nice dark red colour (use some kitchen towel to get rid of the access oil from the bacon).
At last add all the left over ingredients over the plate.. and that's really about it! This honey.. ain't no rocketscience eh?!
So even when you think you have nothing in your house to make yourself something delish.. improvise! My friend S. LOVED IT.. and so did I.
Enjoy the night!
