Grilled bread comes out perfectly toasted and charred! Use it as a base for appetizers, or make grilled garlic bread as a side dish.


  • 8 slices of rustic bread
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and sliced in half (optional)
  • Butter (optional)


  1. Preheat: Preheat a grill to medium-high heat (375 to 450 degrees).
  2. Grill: Brush each side of the bread lightly with olive oil. Place the slices on a baking sheet and sprinkle with 1 pinch of salt on top of each. Grill 1 to 2 minutes per side, until crispy and just starting to char on the edges.
  3. Serve: Remove from the heat. If desired, rub each slice with the cut side of the garlic and a bit of butter or additional olive oil (we rubbed on a small pat of butter between all the slices). Add another sprinkle of kosher salt if serving plain as garlic bread, and top with chopped herbs if desired.
