Grilled Peaches with Goat Cheese and Mint Thyme Honey is a beautiful and light summertime dessert.
Grilled fruit is the perfect dessert for grilling season. If you are grilling dinner, why not throw dessert on the grill too? It keeps things easy and clean up is a breeze. Grilling brings out the fruit's natural sweetness - just the right amount to cap off a summer meal.
Peaches are terrific on the grill and there's hardly any prep required. Cut the peaches in half, remove the pit, and place on a greased grill. Grill until the peaches have softened and the flesh has caramelized. It's that easy!
I love the combination of fruit and cheese, so I like to add a small scoop of goat cheese to the grilled peaches. But this is optional if you don't love goat cheese or prefer your fruit without cheese altogether. I also like the addition of a honey drizzle over the warm peaches. I infused the honey with fresh mint and thyme. These flavors pair well with both the peaches and the goat cheese.
Grilled Peaches with Goat Cheese and Mint Thyme Honey are perfect as dessert but can also be served as an appetizer. Light and sweet with a tang from the goat cheese, this simple dish is so full of flavor. Add these peaches to your grilling line up today!
