Spinach Pesto Eggplant Burger with Mozzarella

So camp has started, but there has been a ton of rain this week.  This means that camp doesn't really feel like camp yet.  We had a nice day yesterday at a water park, but today it is all rainy again!  I am running out of ideas for fun/interesting indoor games!  At least the kids are having fun since it is the first week and therefore exciting/new.  I just hope that this soggy summer gets a little more sunny! 

Camp means that I have a ton more time to cook!  I love this! I came up with this fun Veggie Burger recipe after making some Spinach Pesto.  Bri is a vegetarian and we just went out to dinner at Smoque so I felt like I had to make it up to him with this amazing veggie sandwich! 

Spinach Pesto Eggplant Burger with Mozzarella

4-5 pretzel buns
1 medium eggplant
8-10 tbsp spinach pesto
fresh mozzarella, sliced
salt and pepper
olive oil

1. Heat a pan over medium heat and add 1 tbsp of olive oil.  Place eggplant slice in the pan and cook for about 3-4 minutes on one side.  Flip, pour a little more olive oil in the pan and season with salt and pepper.  Continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes.  If you need to, continue to cook both sides until eggplant starts to soften.  

2. Toast the bun in the toaster and then place on a place.  Spread 1-2 tbsp of the pesto on one side and place mozzarella slices on the other.  Place eggplant slice on top of mozzarella and then put the side with the pesto on top.  

Enjoy :)
