Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

Preheat broiler on your oven.  Slice eggplant into ¼ inch slices.  Brush lightly with olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste and grill until tender.  Set aside and top with a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese.  Broil until cheese is melted and starts to bubble and brown.  Remove from oven and allow to cool.
