Serves 4

4 large or 8 small grape vine leaves
4 or 8 balls of fresh mozzarella according to the size of the vine leaves Fresh lemon
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Extra virgin olive oil
Slices of crusty bread

1 Preheat the barbecue. Lay the leaves on a board then place a ball of mozzarella in the centre of each.

2 Scatter over some lemon thyme, season well and generously drizzle with olive oil.

3 Wrap the leaves to enclose the cheese and fix with toothpicks if necessary. Brush the barbie with oil and lay the cheese down. Cook for 2 minutes. At the same time toast the bread for 2-3 minutes or until golden.

4 Turn the bread and cook for another couple of minutes. Turn the cheese over and continue to cook for another 2 minutes, remove the toothpicks then the cheese on the bread.
