Grilled Peach & Whipped Blue Cheese Toast
It’s officially peach season in Colorado, and if you’ve never had a Palisade peach, you are seriously missing out. This recipe for grilled peach and blue cheese toast from Denver food blogger, Lauren Grier of Climbing Grier Mountain is an amazing savory/sweet combo, and the perfect appetizer to kick off your end-of-summer BBQs.
PREP TIME: 5 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 10 MINUTES
4 oz crumbled blue cheese
3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
2 medium peaches sliced thinly
6 to 8 whole wheat toasts, toasted
Course ground pepper, for garnish
Honey, for garnish
Fresh herbs, for garnish
In a small food processor, add the blue cheese crumbles and whipping cream. Pulse until smooth. Next, preheat a grill pan to medium-hight heat and grill the peaches until slightly golden brown. You may need to grill the peaches in batches depending how big your slices are. Remove the peaches from the grill pan and set aside on a plate.
Next, toast the bread in a toaster. To assemble the toasts, take some of the whipped blue cheese and spread it on top of the toast. Place three to four peach slices on top of the whipped blue cheese. Garnish the peaches with course ground pepper, honey, and fresh herbs!
