I understand the food-trend-averse among us may shy away from toast, having been burned by many a $17 brunch-time version, which I completely understand. If you want to spout toast-hate on social media and opt for eggs when you’re out with friends, by all means, live your life.
But if in the back of your freezer you maybe want to stash a loaf of the good stuff for emergencies/late night snacks/when no one is looking, I promise not to tell. Everybody should be getting the toast treatment — it’s worth the inner conflict.
This eggplant mix is no exception. While I would gladly eat the entirely thing with a spoon from the mixing bowl — and almost did, while waiting for the toaster to pop — it is infinitely better above a creamy layer of Greek yogurt and under a sprinkling of sesame seeds, all piled on a thick slide of bread. —Kendra Vaculin
