Method

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking. 

Thread tomatoes and bread onto six 8-inch skewers, alternating as you go, and then thread cheese separately onto 2 or 3 additional skewers. (If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before assembling.)

Combine oil and basil in a blender and purée, scraping down the sides often, until somewhat smooth. 

Brush skewers all over with some of the basil oil, saving any remaining for another use. 

Grill tomatoes and bread, flipping halfway through, until just charred in parts and hot throughout, about 5 minutes total. 

During the last minute, grill cheese just until warm, 1 to 2 minutes. 

Transfer skewers to a platter and serve warm.
