  • Outdoor BBQ


  • 1 baguette
  • 4 small tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Basil Leaves
  • Salt and pepper


  • Chop the tomatoes and basil leaves. Combine with olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Reserve.
  • Cut the baguette into thick slices.
  • For Gas Grill: Heat grill to medium. Turn off half of the burners to create an indirect and direct heat zone to control the cooking.
    For Charcoal: Heat the coals of the grill. Place them on one side of the barbecue, to have a zone of direct heat and another of indirect for control of cooking.
    Brush the bread slices with olive oil on both sides.
  • Place the bread slices on the grill and grill until crunchy and golden. (3 to 4 minutes per side) If the grill is getting too hot, you can move them to the indirect heat side of the BBQ to avoid burning.
  • Reserve on a serving dish or in a basket.
  • Serve the bread with a bit of tomato mixture on top and enjoy.
