July 27, 2014 – Colio Estate Winery’s Girls Night Out 2012 Cabernet Shiraz and Grilled Steak S’Mores.

. July 27, 2014

S’more wine?

We have taken a nod from a classic summertime childhood favourite!

These steak and cheese crostini s’mores are all grown up with Colio Estate Winery’s 2012 Girls Night Out Cabernet Shiraz.

And the boys will love em too!

Bonfire Steak and Cheese S’Mores


  •  1 Baguette (we grilled ours)

  •  Ontario grain fed steak

  •  Herb & garlic halloum  cheese

  •  Grape tomatoes ( local sold at N&M Farms)

  • Fresh basil from the garden

 Slice and grill baguette brushed with olive oil.   Cut grape tomatoes in half .  Lightly salt and pepper steak,  grill to your preference and slice thinly.

Cube halloum cheese and roast over fire like you would a marshmallow.

Assemble steak, roasted cheese, tomato and basil as you would a traditional s’more!
