Grilled Provolone / Provolone Asado

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 87


2 slices provolone cheese aged, (each about 8 ounces and 1/2 inch thick, the older and firmer the better)
1 to 2 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons oregano, dried
black pepper, freshly ground, to taste
bread, Crusty Italian, for serving (see Note)


1. Preheat the grill to high.

2. When ready to cook, oil the grill grate. Brush the cheese slices on both sides with oil and sprinkle with half the oregano and some pepper. Place the cheese slices on the hot grate. Cook until the bottom side is browned and beginning to bubble, but not completely melted. This will take 2 to 4 minutes.

3. Pry the cheese slices off the grill with the prongs of a barbecue fork. Invert them, sprinkle with the remaining oregano and additional pepper, and grill the other sides the same way, another 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer the grilled cheese to a plate.

4. To eat, spread the melted cheese on chunks or slices of bread.

Serves 6 to 8 as an appetizer

Note: Although it’s not traditional, for an even richer charcoal flavor you could slice the bread and toast it on the grill.
