Great Grilled Garlic Bread

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"So simple and so good. My wife and I always freeze our leftover baguettes and sometime they do not thaw quite as fresh, so I tried grilling the bread and used the abundance of fresh basil I have in my garden. It was a hit the first time we tried this and still is, and is now is our summertime favorite, for fresh and leftover bread alike."

  1. Mix oil, basil, and garlic in a bowl.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Cook bread slices on the grill until underside is toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip bread over and baste the grilled sides with about 1/2 of the oil mixture. Grind salt and pepper on top. Grill until bottoms are toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Flip bread slices over once more; baste with remaining oil mixture. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.
