Wow!!! The wife proclaimed this stuff the most delicious thing she's put in her mouth. YOU MUST TRY IT!! (I strongly dislike eggplant, but off the EGG in this salsa, it's great.)[p]
I got this from the food network's web site(Bobby Flay cooked this on the first episode of grillin' & chillin') OK, credit has been given:[p]
2 eggplants, cut vertically into 1/2-inch thick slices
2 red peppers, quartered and seeded
2 yellow peppers, quartered and seeded
2 red onions, sliced 1/2-inch thick
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons finely chopped oregano
Salt and freshly ground pepper [p]I cooked at a 350 dome temp with no smoke. [p]OH, I cooked the peppers whole -- I carved them up after they were cooked. They were so juicy! I will start doing this on a regular basis.[p]Brush eggplant, peppers and onions on both sides with 1/4 cup of the oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. [I sprayed with Pam Olive oil and didn't even use salt and pepper -- I relied on the lump for the flavor. A good decision I think][p]Grill for 5 to 8 minutes on each side, until lightly golden brown and almost cooked through. Remove vegetables from grill and cut into 1/2-inch dice. Combine eggplant, peppers and onions in a medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients inluding the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.[p]Next time, I may add some EGGed chillis are hotter peppers for a little more kick. All in all -- wonderful!

    Bama Fire,
    That sounds wonderful. I have a potluck picnic to cook for tomorrow; I think I'll give this a shot. Also have some beans soaking, so I may do both! Thanks for posting.
    Cheers,

    Bama Fire,
    Saturday football tailgating? Oh I forgot....you southerners are die-hard loyalists to your college football. Out here in my neck of da' woods where Rutgers, who usually start every season at #125(out of 125 teams polled) in the polls, gives us not much to Egg for.
    Tailgating rocks!
    J!E!T!S! JETS!! JETS!!!! JETS!!!!!!!

  • Bama Fire, sorry for sounding stupid, but do you cut it all up or grind it or what?

    I just cut everything up using a sharp knife. 1/2 inch pieces.
