Expert Tips

Let the cheese thaw a bit before grilling.

The provoleta is a grilled or baked wheel of cheese that is traditionally served in Argentina. It's a perfect appetizer or snack.

If you don't want to use olive oil, sprinkle both sides with flour to prevent it from sticking to the grill or oven.

Directions

  • 1 Prepare the grill or oven. If you're using the oven, preheat to 325° F.
  • 2 Place the slices on a tray and cover the cheese in the olive oil on both sides.
  • 3 Sprinkle with dry oregano and place over the grill or in the oven. Roast until each side has browned and it's soft without falling apart (about 2-3 minutes).
  • 4 Season to taste and serve immediately. I like serving it with fresh bread and chimichurri.
