We saw vessels of melted Provolone cheese on tapas menus all over Barcelona. It hardens relatively quickly, so enjoy it right as it comes out of the oven!


You’ll need

  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 oz (225 g) sliced Provolone
  • 1 T chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 T chopped fresh chives
  • 1 baguette, sliced


Sprinkle the minced garlic between the slices of Provolone & layer them inside a small (approx 6-in/15-cm) oiled skillet or baking dish. Sprinkle the top with oregano, chives & black pepper. Bake at 400°F (205°C) for 10-15 min or until bubbly & melted. Dip slices of baguette (toasted or not) in the cheese & use a knife to cut into it as it hardens.
