Prep: 10 mins   Grill: 15 mins
Makes 16 side-dish servings.

  • 1/4cup margarine or butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 16-ounce loaf unsliced French bread

To make the spread in small mixing bowl combine margarine or butter, cheese, basil, garlic and pepper.

Cut bread into 1 inch thick slices. Try not to cut through the bottom crust. Spread the cut surfaces with the pre-made spread. Place bread in center of 48x18 inch piece of heavy foil, which has been folded in half. Bring up the two opposite edges of foil and seal with a double fold. Fold the remaining ends, leaving space for steam to build.

Grill bread on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 15-20 minutes. Turn bread once halfway through.
