Summer Grilled Peaches with Prosciutto

Summer Grilled Peaches with Prosciutto

A creamy cheese spread topped with savory prosciutto, grilled sweet peaches and a fresh burst of mint.  No grill – no worries!  This quick and easy appetizer works wonderfully without it – just slice and assemble. Our favorite appetizer crackers are Wellington – but any nice (and sturdy) table cracker will work.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 box Wellington or similar table cracker
  • 6 oz Prosciutto - thinly sliced
  • 4-6 Peaches - medium sized
  • 1 bunch Fresh Mint
  • 8 oz Soft Cheese (Ricotta, Cream Cheese, Goat Cheese)
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1 pinch Cayenne Pepper (optional)
  • Vegetable Oil for grill grates to prevent sticking

Instructions
 

Cheese Spread

  • Mix the soft cheese, honey, chopped mint, and optional cayenne pepper in a bowl and set aside. (Can be made a day ahead and refrigerated)

Prosciutto & Mint

  • Slice prosciutto into serving sizes for each cracker.

Peaches

  • Heat grill to medium high.
  • Slice each piece into 8-12 wedges depending on size.
  • Carefully wipe grill grates with light coating of vegetable oil to prevent peaches from sticking.
