Eggplant Parmesan Panini

What do you do with leftover Eggplant Parmesan? Make eggplant panini’s of course! As amazing as the original dish was, the panini’s were even better. I used a grill pan which comes with a press but any pan and weight will work but you won’t get those nice grill marks. These would be great on a George Foreman Grill.
