Recipe Notes

  • Yield: Serves 6 but can be scaled up as needed to accompany beef shoulder clod (which serves as many as 20)


  • 1 1-pound loaf unsliced country-style white bread, end pieces trimmed off
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, melted
  • Garlic salt
  • Dried oregano, crumbled between your fingers
  • Parmesan cheese, finely grated (optional)

Recipe Steps

1: Using a bread knife, cut the bread into slices about 1 inch thick. Arrange on a rimmed baking sheet.

2: Brush melted butter on both sides of each slice of bread. Season both sides with garlic salt, dried oregano, and Parmesan cheese, if using.

3: Preheat a grill to medium-high. Grill the bread for 1 to 2 minutes per side. Watch carefully as bread can burn easily. Alternatively, preheat a plancha or griddle on the grill and toast the bread there.
