Greek Style Eggplant

I eat the leftovers the next day, simply picking them up on each side like tacos.  Delish.

 

2 tablespoons Unflavored Olive Oil or Butter Olive Oil, plus 2-3

    tablespoons more for brushing
2 teaspoons fresh oregano, chopped,

    or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons Traditional Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 medium uncooked eggplant, about 1 lb., sliced into

     twelve 3/8-inch rounds

6 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese


Preheat the grill to medium-high (or heat your broiler).  Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, oregano, vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, red pepper flakes and garlic powder, and set aside.

 

Lightly brush the eggplant with olive oil; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.  Grill eggplant until lightly charred and tender, turning as needed, about 10 minutes.  Remove the eggplant to a serving platter and evenly spoon the oil mixture over the eggplant.  Sprinkle with feta; garnish with additional oregano and red pepper flakes if desired.
