How to Bake Bread on the Grill

There’s nothing better than slicing into a crusty, delicious loaf of homemade bread. Even just the thought of it makes us hungry. And yet, on hot summer days, it’s hard to turn on the oven when it’s already plenty steamy in the house.

Our farmers’ Grill Baked Cheesey Bread is fun, fast, fabulous, and packed with melty mounds of award-winning Vermont Sharp Cheddar. Even better, since it’s baked outdoors right on your grill, you can enjoy the perfect loaf without even heating up the kitchen.
