  • Eight 3/4- to 1-inch-thick slices crusty, artisan-style bread, like ciabatta
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil for brushing
  • 1 to 2 large cloves garlic, peeled and halved
  • Sea salt or kosher salt

Prepare a medium-low charcoal or gas grill fire. Brush both sides of the bread with the oil and grill, covered, turning once, until golden and marked on both sides, 1 to 3 min. per side. Off the heat but while the bread is still hot, lightly rub one side of each bread slice with the cut sides of the garlic—heat and friction from the bread will cause the garlic to “melt” into the bread. Sprinkle with salt and serve.

Very quick and easy to do. I like using the barbeque over the broiler.
