Recipe for Greek Style Grilled Bread

Written by in , Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Style Grilled Bread

Crispy grilled bread is a staple in Greece. It’s eaten at all times of the day and is great smeared with honey, to dip into olive oil or other type of dip, or even as a simple snack.

Greek Style Grilled Bread (Lathobrekto) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf Greek bread
  • Greek olive oil
  • 3 fresh garlic cloves, optional
  • Dried Greek oregano, optional

How to Prepare Greek Grilled Bread:

Preheat the grill on medium or get the coals started if using a charcoal grill.

It’s best if the bread is at least a day old. Fresh bread doesn’t grill up as crisp as older bread.

Slice the bread into 1-inch thick pieces using a bread knife.

Brush each slice with olive oil on the front and the back. Lay each piece of bread on the hot grill.

Grill on one side for a few minutes until it starts to crisp. The grill marks should show but it won’t burn. Turn the bread over and cook for another few minutes.

Your goal is to make sure the bread is golden brown without burning it. You may need to flip it one more time on each side.

This step is optional. Once you remove the bread from the grill, sprinkle it with more olive oil and rub the garlic cloves on the top to give it a garlic flavor. You may also sprinkle the bread with Greek oregano.
