Bacon and Balsamic Caprese Grillbread


  • 7 oz. Galbani® Fresh Mozzarella Medallions
  • Ciabatta bread
  • 2 cloves garlic, cut in half
  • 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinaigrette, divided
  • 6 slices crispy cooked bacon, cut into pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh basil leaves, chopped fine

  • Preheat grill on high for 10 min.
  • Meanwhile, slice ciabatta lengthwise into two near-flat rectangles.
  • Rub inside of each piece with garlic, then brush with 2 tbs balsamic vinaigrette.
  • Reduce heat to medium; grill bread face down.
  • Remove bread once grill marks are well-defined and bread is toasted—about 5 minutes.
