Pane Alla Griglia


Grilling bread is as old as fire itself. When you are looking for a quick grill fix that can be prepared as quick as making toast, fire-up the grill and char-up good quality, preferably day old sliced tuscan style bread. 

To Do:

- Fire-up the grill on high.

- Bread sliced 1-inch thick, grilled on high heat for under 1 minute or until slightly brown, then flip over and grill a few more seconds and remove.

- Finish with pre-made toppings of your choice; from simple olive oil + fresh herbs or top with a light salad. 

Today's topping is a combo of fresh spinach, fresh mozzarella, vine ripened tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic, Vidalia onion, Kalamata olives, and fresh ground black pepper tossed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Toss all ingredients, let flavors bloom and marinate for five minutes. Top over grilled bread. 

Other Topping Suggestions:

Grilled portabella mushrooms

Grilled eggplant

Soft cheeses such as ricotta & honey, goat cheese, or brie, etc. 

Smoked Fish

Grilled Shrimp
