We wanted to make something to go with our grilled steak and lobster and this was a terrific addition that was made up as we went along. Enjoy!.
- 1 French bread, cut in half lengthwise
- 1⁄2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil (I always have loose frozen fresh basil and frozen basil cubes)
- 1 -2 teaspoon sriracha chili sauce (start with 1 and add more to taste)
- Preheat gas BBQ to low heat. You can just use one part of your grill for this and cook meat, etc. on the other part.
- Mix together the mayo, parmesan cheese, garlic cloves, basil and chili sauce. Spread the mixture over each half of the loaf.
- Set the bread halves on the grill, cut side up, over low heat. You want the topping to heat up and the bottom to brown up a bit and crisp. It takes about 10 - 15 minutes. If you want to, you can place the bread on a top rack while you cook everything else. Just make sure it doesn't dry out.
I did this on the grill (charcoal grill outside), so the top of my bread didn't get that charred look.....thought about putting it under the broiler, but wanted to enjoy the crispness of the bottom of the bread with the soft creaminess of the top. I've never done garlic bread on the grill unless I put it in foil. This was fun and easy! Made for Think Pink 2012.
Yummy! I made this to go along with your recipe Nif's Teriyaki Salmon Steak#350497 and a green salad. What a fast and delicious meal...great for company. I also baked this under the broiler when the salmon was done. Definately a keeper. Made for Think Pink Recipe Tag Game...Cancer Awareness 2011.
Nif, your recipe is top! I would serve this also on small pieces of bread as finger-food! Easy and really yummy!
I did not have mayonnaise. So I prepared mine myself using one part of oil on 2 parts of yogurt (other ingredients as usually).
I baked this under the broiler in combination of air circulation! My family was delighted and my daugther said that it would be a pity to finish her bread.
