One way to amp up the flavor of fruits is by grilling and roasting them. And a fruit that tastes really great roasted is the peach. This roasted peaches recipe is awesome, topped with goat cheese, prosciutto, and honey.
Several years ago I was at a family reunion and my cousin, who is a caterer for movies and tv shows, was in charge of the food. He showed me how to make these roasted peaches with goat cheese, prosciutto, and honey and I was hooked. I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make and how amazing they taste.
If you are looking for something different to serve as an appetizer, healthy dessert, or side dish, give this recipe a try. If I can do it, you can do it. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Gather the ingredients
In order to make this simple roasted peaches recipe you need just 5 ingredients:
- Peaches – Pick your favorite peaches, or whatever happens to be in season or available where you live.
- Prosciutto – This is optional, but it makes them taste so much better, you can use bacon too if you like.
- Goat cheese – The goat cheese really elevates the flavor profile of this dish.
- Honey – I love most things topped with honey!
- Olive oil – for cooking the prosciutto.
- Sheet pan or cooking sheet
Step 2: How to make roasted peaches with goat cheese, prosciutto, and honey
Begin by preheating the oven to 400 F/205 C. Make sure the main rack is in the middle of the oven.
Then, wash and dry the peaches, and slice them in half and remove the pits. Place the peach halves on a sheet pan. No need to line it with parchment paper.
Slice up the prosciutto or bacon with a knife. Cut it into thin small strips.
Heat a skillet on medium heat and add a little bit of olive oil to it. Then add the prosciutto slices and cook for a few minutes until almost crispy.
Remove them from the skillet and place them on a paper towel to dry.
Take some little handfuls of goat cheese and place them in the cavity of each peach slice. The combination of sweetness from the peach and the tangy sharpness of the goat cheese is just heavenly.
Step 3: Roast those peaches
Now sprinkle the prosciutto pieces on top of the goat cheese.
Place the pan in the oven and roast the peaches for 15 to 20 minutes until the cheese is lightly melted. And the prosciutto will crisp up even more.
When they come out of the oven allow them to cool for a few minutes and then drizzle honey over the top of them. These combinations of flavors are absolutely amazing. The crispy salty prosciutto, the sharp tangy goat cheese, and the sweetness from the honey and peach are so yummy.
Time to serve them up. Enjoy!
How long do roasted peaches last?
These roasted peaches with goat cheese, prosciutto, and honey are best eaten warm a few minutes out of the oven. However, you can refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.
Can I use other fruit besides peaches?
Yes! You can use nectarines if you like or pears. Pears go very well with goat cheese! You also may want to try apples as well, they go nicely with goat cheese, prosciutto, and honey.
