Brunch Eggplant, Cheese and Ham Rolls

Photo credit: © Eatwell101.comThe smoky, savory eggplant does it all — whether you grill it, fry it, stuff it, roll it, bake it, or roast it… Everything will taste wonderful! Today we’ll make this versatile vegetable a delicious and surprising appetizer, paired with smoked ham, goat’s cheese and fresh herbs. You will get a starter full of freshness with a little taste of vacation! One key is to bake eggplant for a long time (one hour minimum), so do it the day before. You will have more time to cool it down when you make the preparation.
