Sesame Toasted Ciabatta

Toasted Ciabatta.  Toasted ciabatta and soup.   This recipe is like creating a GIANT crouton that you can happily dunk repeatedly.  I love croutons,  so it is no wonder when you supercharge a crouton by way of a ciabatta I am one happy, clappy lady!

Ok,  so this is not a recipe per se, this is  more of a sharing of an idea for a side or a snack.   Its not complicated,  it doesn’t require ANY cooking skills, and to be quite frank I toyed with idea of not even including it here, but hey, IT TASTES DELICIOUS, so that is reason enough for me to blog about it.

What do I do?

  • Cut open your ciabatta roll
  • Lightly coat both sides with a little sesame oil, that has been mixed with “mixed herbs”  and a pinch of “good with everything sea salt”
  • Place the oiled side down on a very hot, hot griddle pan to get those lovely charred strips.  Keep the ciabatta’s on the griddle for as long as you like, ( I like mine crispy and crunchy)  then flip them over and do the reverse side,  (remember to lightly oil the over side also)
  • Voila! you have yourself a tasty little side to jazz up your midweek soupy lunch!
