  • Preheat the grill to medium or heat a grill pan on the stove top over medium-high heat.  
  • With a pastry brush, lightly brush  both sides of each slice of bread with the Favolosa.
  • Place the bread on the grill and toast until light golden brown and grill marks appear, flipping once during the process (take care not to burn the bread).
