Grilled Bruschetta Loaf|
I like nice and easy side dishes, and grilled bread is something so easy and a dish that everyone just seems to inhale like it is going out of style. They do the same thing with bruschetta…but it takes so long to make each bruschetta that it isn't practical when serving a crowd when you are short on time. This recipe is, and tastes marvelous. The key is to use your favorite good quality Italian dressing for great results.
1 long loaf French or Italian bread, halved lengthwise
1 cup Italian dressing
4 sliced plum tomatoes
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup minced fresh basil
Brush the cut side of the bread with the Italian dressing. Grill cut side down for 3 minutes. Layer the tomatoes over the bread and top with the cheeses. Return to the grill and grill cheese side up for another 2-3 minutes or until the cheese melts. Sprinkle with the fresh basil and serve hot.
