Grilled bread skewers are the perfect combination of chewy and crispy! With a touch of rosemary and garlic, these are always the first thing to go at a BBQ!
Once you try grilled bread, there really is no going back! Sure, you can toast it in the oven but it just doesn’t get that delicious smoky flavor and the crispy grill marks that only the grill can make!
The best part is that it is cheap and easy to make. We make these are parties and they really are the first to go. Guests pick them up right off the grill and gobble them up while they are still warm.
Even the kids ask for these!

What Is The Best Bread For Grilling?
For this recipe, any loaf of bread will work, but we like to use a baguette or sourdough bread. Be sure to read the ingredients because many store-bought loaves of bread are loaded with preservatives.
Whole-grain bread and rustic bread work great and they can be considered clean! Support your local bakery!

Step 1: Soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes. This will prevent them from burning on the grill
Step 2: Cut the bread into 1-inch slices and then cut each slice into thirds (if you are using a baguette, but the slices in half).
Step 3: In a large bowl, add the oil, rosemary and garlic. Then add the bread and toss until well coated
Step 4: Place the bread pieces on to the skewers so that the cut ends are exposed
Step 5: Grill over medium heat for 3-5 minutes per side or until crispy and grilled
How To Grill Bread
Grilling bread can be intimidating, but it’s actually very easy to do and the best part is that you can just add it to the food you are already grilling!
In this recipe, the best way to grill is over medium heat. Watch the bread closely so it doesn’t burn. Once it browns, turn the bread over and grill the other side.
What Are The Best Skewers For Kebobs
You really want a strong skewer that will be able to hold your food without falling over or bending. It should also be at least 10 inches long so you can put lots of bread on it and still have room to hold the stick.
These 10 inch skewers are perfect for kebobs.
TIP: When grilling skewered foods, be sure to soak the skewers first to prevent them from burning. If possible, move the skewers to the edge of the grill and let the bare skewer hang over the edge, away from the fire.
