As I have mentioned before, I love making our meals all on the grill. It is so nice to just prepare and not turn on the oven. You can easily hang outside by the grill, enjoy the weather, have a few cocktails, and dinner is ready before you know it. After we made this bread, I proclaimed that we could not have another meal this summer without this bread. I finally came to my senses, realizing that grilled garlic bread for dinner every night is the worst idea ever and didn't follow through, but I think I could have.
This bread has a great crunch on the outside, but the bread is still soft on the inside. There is no butter on this bread, just olive oil, and it is a million times better than butter. This bread is one of the top things we have made all summer on the grill. Delicious!

8 slices of French Bread, cut 3/4 inch-1 inch thick
1/2 cup of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
4 cloves of Garlic, cut in half lengthwise
Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
First, prepare you grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
Now, coat both sides of the bread with the olive oil. Grill for 1-3 minutes per side, depending on how hot your grill is, flipping once.
When the bread comes off the grill, rub the cut side of the garlic on the top of the bread, the garlic will disintegrate from the heat, use one half of garlic clove for each slice of bread.
