3/4" chunks of good provolone cheese
Baguettes cut into 1" pieces
Sun dried tomato's
(either oil-packed, or, reconstituted in warm water for an hour on the kitchen counter.)
1 cup garlic-flavored olive oil
(You can buy it, or you can make this by adding fresh-pressed garlic to your favorite Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Figure 2-tablespoons garlic per cup of oil for flavoring it, or more to taste. Let that sit for 2-3 hours , stirring occasionally. EVOO does not include "light" olive oil.)
Kosher salt to taste
Fresh ground black pepper
wooden skewers (Do not use metal skewers.)
1. Soak the skewers in warm water for 1/2 hour. You can stick them in a water filled beer bottle; which keeps them submerged.
2. Light a fire and preheat to medium.
3. Assemble the bread kabobs by threading onto the skewers and alternating; chunks of provolone, the bread, and slices of tomato.
4. Using a pastry brush to brush the kabobs with the flavored olive oil brush them well and turn to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
5. On the grill; Turning frequently with tongs over direct heat, grill the kabobs to they are heated through, the bread chunks are toasty golden brown, and the tomato's are just starting to char. Don't worry, the cheese won't melt and fall off. The aroma at this point is outstanding.
You can figure 1 medium sized skewer per person as an appetizer. More might spoil the party, but what a way to go.
Do hang onto this; print it and keep it with your cookbooks.
