A really delicious combination. I brushed the eggplant with olive oil before broiling and added tinned mushrooms minus the juice. I used mild cheddar cheese (didn't have Montrachet). The leftovers were put on a pizza base, excellent. Thanks for posting this.
I liked this recipe. It was easy and tasty. I didn't have capers and it came out just fine. I sprinkled the top with feta cheese, which blended well with the dish. I served it with toasted french bread, it was great. I highly suggest it.
My kids ate this! I minced the mushrooms and capers in a foodprocessor before adding them so nobody noticed the mushrooms. I used regular hard cheese as I don't like goat cheese, and halved the amount. This is a keeper.
