Fire up the grill right away for this tasty French bread. It takes seconds to prepare and then cooks away over indirect heat, giving you plenty of time to assemble the rest of the meal. —Lori LeCroy, East Tawas, Michigan
Our 8-year-old son just loves this delicious bread. It's a perfect addition to a green salad or pasta dinner. Or for a hearty appetizer, dip slices in pizza or spaghetti sauce.
Instead of the same old side of garlic bread, serve up wedges of toasty, mouthwatering Spinach Flatbreads from Kristen Westbrook in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. “I always seemed to have spinach that would spoil before I could use it all,” she explains. “So I started making these delicious and quick flatbreads. They’re low-fat, work well with almost any vegetable I have on hand and can double as a light lunch.”Kristen Westbrook, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
A flavorful combination of herbs makes this cheese-topped loaf a welcome addition to most any menu. In fact, we couldn't believe how light the buttery slices were when compared to frozen breads found in the grocery store.
"I always like to try bruschetta when we're eating out at a restaurant to see how it compares to my recipe-- and I haven't found one that's better yet!" writes Vicki Thompson of Bristol, New Brunswick. "It's a hit when i serve it to company or take it to potlucks and other gatherings."
This savory grilled bread is delightful with barbecued steak, baked potatoes and corn on the cob. My family prefers it instead of rolls at Sunday dinners. For variation, we use half cheddar cheese and half mozzarella.Dolly McDonald, Edmonton, Alberta
This appealing appetizer takes classic bruschetta to new heights. Instead of olive oil, these savory treats are spread with reduced-fat cream cheese, then topped with tomato, green onion and ripe olives.—Michelle Wentz, Fort Polk, Louisiana
I like serve slices of this dressed-up French bread with a chef's salad. It's also a great complement to soup on a cold day. Sometimes I hollow out the loaf and fill it with the creamy mixture before baking. Laura Murphy
