Grilled Peaches and Cream Recipe
Makes: 4-6 servings
Total Time: 20 minutes
· 6 large ripe peaches, halved and pits removed
· Oil for grill
· 6 tablespoons honey, plus more for serving
· 1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
· 8 ounces mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
· Loaf of your favorite country bread, sliced
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and oil to avoid sticking.
Place the peaches cut side down onto the grill and cook until lightly charred, 2-3 minutes. Transfer peaches, cut sides up, to a grill proof dish and drizzle with the 6 tablespoons honey. Sprinkle with thyme, then place the dish on the grill and cover.
Continue to cook until the peaches are soft, about 5 minutes.
While peaches are cooking, toss the sliced bread on the grill to toast, 1-2 minutes per side.
Remove the dish and toasted bread from the grill. Divide the mascarpone between the slices of bread and spread evenly, then top with 2 peach halves and a drizzle of honey. Serve immediately.
