In a large bowl combine eggplant, squash, red onion, mushrooms, red sweet pepper, vegetable oil, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the 1/4 teaspoon black pepper; toss to coat.
For a charcoal grill, place eggplant, squash, and onion on the lightly greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, turning once halfway through grilling. Transfer to a large bowl; keep warm.
Meanwhile, place mushrooms and sweet pepper in a grill basket. Place grill basket on grill rack over coals. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes or until tender. Add to eggplant mixture.
For dressing, whisk together vinegar, garlic, the 1/8 teaspoon salt, the 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, mustard, and brown sugar. Gradually whisk in the 1/4 cup olive oil. Pour over vegetables; toss to coat.
Brush cut sides of bread with additional olive oil. Cut garlic clove in half; rub cut sides of bread with garlic. Place bread on the grill rack over coals. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until light brown, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Place vegetables then bread on lightly greased grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)
Divide vegetable mixture evenly among bread slices. Top evenly with cheese. Serve warm.
