  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick provolone wheel, approximately 4-6 inches (1015 cm) in diameter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • toasted baguette for serving


  1. Lightly grease a small cast iron skillet with olive oil.
  2. Place your skillet on the grill over medium high heat (375-400F).
  3. When the grill and skillet are hot, carefully place the cheese in the skillet. Sprinkle with oregano and red pepper flakes.
  4. Close the lid and cook for approximately 5 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted and bubbly.
  5. Very carefully remove the hot cast iron skillet from the grill. Serve provoleta hot with toasted baguette slices.


Provolone: Provoleta is the Argentine version of provolone cheese, which was designed specifically for grilling. Because it is difficult to come across in the US, we opt for a high quality Italian-style provolone here.

Provolone size: Your provolone wheel should be about 3/4 – 1 inch (2-2.5 cm) thick and 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) in diameter. It should weigh about 8-9 oz (230-250 g).
