Favorite uses for fairytale eggplant?

I got a big batch of fairytale eggplants - the little guys - at the market yesterday, and I'd like to serve them for lunch on Saturday. I'll be cooking in advance, though. Any favorite recipes for fairytales that can be made in advance?

I like to cut them in half lengthwise and pan roast them in a little olive oil with salt and pepper. Then arrange them on a
pretty plate. Add balsamic vinegar to the pan and reduce it to a glaze and drizzle over the eggplant. Garnish with fresh parsley, thyme or basil. Easy to make ahead of time. Just drizzle the glaze and garnish with herb/s before serving.

I forgot to add it's good with a little crumbled feta, goat cheese or blue cheese too.

Caramelized… this shows off their shape and size nicely

Or eggplant caponata. This doesn’t showcase their petite charms, but is delicious. Serve with toasted baguette slices or on a bed of greens. Here are a few approaches:
