Not the Same Old Garlic Bread

I enjoy serving spaghetti for dinner especially when you have a lot people. Come on, pilgrim. I can't serve steak to everyone every night. However, I can do different things and one of which is doing something with the bread.

Everyone loves bread to go along with the spaghetti and this recipe is a winner for those who enjoy it.

Herbed Cheese Bread on the Grill

1 package hogie rolls, split
1 can sliced black olives, drained
6 roma tomatoes, sliced thinly
6 ounces soft cheese, Brie or Gruyere, sliced
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Preheat grill. Brush rolls with olive oil and top with cheese, tomatoes, and basil. Grill on direct medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until cheese has melted. Remove from heat and serve immediately.

I have added garlic to this recipe and it is very good as well.

Hi Jesse, I really like your food blog. I'm a charcoal guy. Do you have any advice or products to add about charcoal grilling? Thanks. cf

When I was younger, I used charcoal a lot more. The biggest thing I can give for charcoal cooking is be vigilant over those coals. If you are cooking low and slow, indirect heat is your best ally. In the future, I will be adding tips on charcoal cooking. Thanks again for your comments.
