Easy Grilled Chimichurri Bread

When I fire up my grill for lunch or dinner I like to cook the entire meal outdoors. Not just the main dish, but also the side dishes. One of my favorite things to make is this easy grilled chimichurri bread. Lightly crunchy and packed with flavor, this bread makes for the perfect side. It’d also be great to use for making sandwiches!

The parsley, garlic, oregano and oil in the chimichurri is an absolute favorite of mine. If you like garlic bread you’ll love this easy grilled chimichurri bread. It is packed with flavor and is crazy easy to make.

If you don’t have a disposable pan, you can melt the butter on your stove top or grill in a medium saute pan. Stir in the chimichurri then brush onto the crispy bread.
