Grilled Stuffed French Bread

Create an extraordinary cheesy pesto grilled bread thanks to a purchased French loaf. The do-ahead tip makes it even easier!


8 servings


1 (8 ounce) loaf or 1/2 loaf (1-pound size) unsliced French bread
1/3 cup sun-dried tomato pesto or basil pesto
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)


Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Spray 18-inch piece of heavy-duty foil with cooking spray.

Cut bread loaf diagonally into 12 slices to within 1/2 inch of bottom of loaf. Spread pesto on both sides of slices. Sprinkle slices with cheese. Securely wrap loaf in foil.

Grill bread uncovered 5 to 6 inches from medium heat about 10 minutes, turning once, until hot.

Additional Information

You can assemble the bread and wrap it in foil up to 8 hours ahead of time. Keep it in the refrigerator until you're ready to grill.
