Yeeeeeeeeeees! I’ve been waiting forever to tell you about this deliciousness. I finally get to share one of my bestest grilled veggy appetizers with you!

Grilled Eggplant Rollups with Bacon and Goat Cheese! Booyah!!

BEST veggie food, ever!

Then again, how can it not be the best when there’s bacon in it! And goat cheese!

I know, I’m totally freaking out about this one, but for real, this stuff is amazing. I first made it some 3 or 4 years ago and since then, as soon as the weather reaches 70 degrees, I’m out there rollin’ up the eggplants and grillin’! You should never underestimate the power of a veggie… With bacon.
