Toppings for Grilled Bread Are a Breeze
  1. Top the grilled bread with crumbled feta, chopped Kalamata olives, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
  2. Spread the grilled bread slices with a little mayonnaise, diced cherry tomatoes, and crisp, crumbled bacon.
  3. In a bowl mix together chopped cooked shrimp, a little mayonnaise and yogurt, and curry powder to taste. Put some on each grilled slice.
  4. Spread the grilled bread with a little garlic chili sauce from the Asian section of the supermarket, add diced cooked chicken and chopped scallions.
  5. For dessert, top each slice of bread with semisweet chocolate chips and a sprinkling of unsweetened coconut. As soon as the chocolate gets soft, serve.

  1. Cover the grilled bread with Gorgonzola cheese and toasted walnuts. When it has melted, drizzle with local honey and serve.

  1. Sauté tomatoes in olive oil.
  2. Top the grilled bread with sautéed tomatoes, a little sea salt, and Parmesan cheese.
Ted Allen, The Food Network magazine
  1. Rub each slice with garlic clove before grilling. When it is grilled, place a tablespoon or two of ricotta cheese on each slice of bread, top each one with a leaf of arugula, and top again with a very thin slice of prosciutto. Close the lid for a minute to warm it up.
