Dinner idea: Grilled eggplant




 2 large eggplants

 1 lemon, juiced

 1 cup water

 1⁄4 cup butter

 1⁄2 cup jack cheese, shredded

 Dash of nutmeg

 Salt

Grill whole eggplants in covered barbecue for 20-30 minutes. Add lemon to water in shallow dish. Place eggplants in water, turn to coat thoroughly, and let stand until cool. Slice eggplants into rounds, about 1⁄2 inch thick. Brush the tops with butter. Divide cheese on the slices, garnish with nutmeg. Place slices on grill, cover and cook until cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
