  • Preheat your grill to around 350 degrees Fahrenheit. I set my three-zone Weber grill to medium heat (on all three zones).
  • Brush zucchini rounds with canola oil. Sprinkle each with garlic salt, black pepper, and smoked paprika, using as much or as little as you’d like. I only do this on one side, but do both sides if you'd like.
  • Place zucchini rounds seasoned side down on the heated grill. 
  • Brush both sides of each slice of French bread with canola oil.
  • Place French bread slices on heated grill. 
  • Close grill and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Flip bread, then flip zucchini rounds.
  • Re-cover grill and continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes. Check bread after 2 minutes have passed. Remove from grill if nice and crusty.
  • Spread goat cheese on each slice of crostini immediately after removing it from the grill; it will help it get a little melty. I like to pre-crumble the goat cheese slightly, place a few chunks on each slice, then use a butter knife to spread it out. 
  • Remove the zucchini from the grill. Assemble zucchini on the goat cheese-slathered crostini. Slice a few zucchini in half if you like for maximum crostini coverage. 
  • Serve. Add additional seasoning, to taste. Hitting it with a pinch of salt isn't a bad idea.


Other seasoning ideas: onion powder, cayenne pepper, lemon pepper seasoning, cumin. You could also top with some fresh basil, oregano, or thyme to make it really pop.
