  • Prepare a medium-hot (425°F to 450°F) gas or charcoal grill fire. Brush the eggplant slices with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Grill the eggplant until grill marks form on one side, about 3 minutes. Flip the slices and continue to grill until the eggplant is tender, about 2 minutes more.
  • In a small bowl, combine the feta, olives, and herbs.
  • Spread the eggplant slices on a work surface. Put 1 heaping Tbs. of the feta mixture at the wider end of each slice and then tightly roll up. Arrange the rolls seam side down on a platter and finish with a little oil, pepper, and more chopped herbs.

    These were great. I didn't have a grill so just used a pan to soften the eggplant. Only thing was a half an inch was too thick to roll so I just spread the feta mixture on top. Still tasted every bit as good! :)

    these are wonderful and pretty easy to make. My husband does not like eggplant and he loved these.
