Grilled Peaches ~ Easy Appetizer Recipe

Grilled peaches are sweet and juicy and pick up a hint of smoky flavor from charing them on the grill. The flavor combination of the charred peaches, basil and honey are the perfect compliment to cream cheese. 

Ingredients Needed:

  • Peaches or Nectarines
  • Cream Cheese
  • Honey
  • Fresh Basil or Thyme
  • Toasted whole grain bread, baguette or Crackers for Serving

How to Make Grilled Peaches with Basil and Honey:

  • Wash peaches and dry. Cut peaches in half and remove pit.
  • Grill both sides for about 3 to 5 minutes each, just until fruit is charred and starts to soften.

  • Remove from grill and allow to cool. If you are making ahead,  cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Cut grilled peaches into bite- sized chunks.
  • Roll basil leaves together and slice thinly.

  • Place softened cream cheese on a serving plate, top with peaches.
  • Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with fresh basil.
  • Serve with toasted bread or crackers.

This appetizer is best when served fresh. Leftovers can be covered and refrigerated but the fresh basil doesn’t refrigerate well and will darken.

    I am a sucker for pretty much anything poured over a block of cream cheese! Love the simplicity of this dish–it is just perfect, Milissa! I hope things settle down for you soon!

  2. Oh, I LOVE this recipe! I’ve made something similar with strawberries, but I think the peach idea is even more delicious!!! And so pretty, too>

    What a fabulous way to begin our Progressive dinner Millisa! Bright and refreshing with just a touch of lovely cream cheese to make us all swoon, this is absolutely beautiful. I love the half peaches too and those would be so lovely served alongside grilled meats for dinner. Mmmmm, I’m already thinking how I can make these this week! 😉
