These oven roasted peaches are an amazing addition to the table either before or after a meal. Whether you pair it with some lemony baby greens and serve it as a salad dish or save it for a dessert, you will find the rich flavors and the combination of sweet and savory utterly mouth-wateringly fulfilling.

I offered two of the four I made to our vegetarian babysitter, so bacon was off her menu, but it made my two roasted peaches absolutely irresistible

Today I added an extra flavor to half of mine: bacon. I offered two of the four I made to our vegetarian babysitter, so bacon was off her menu, but it made my two roasted peaches absolutely irresistible.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Peaches (I like a combo of white & yellow peaches to add variety – either works)
  • 8 TBS soft goat cheese
  • 1 TBS maple syrup (optional)
  • A sprinkle of sea salt
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 4 large fresh basil leaves
  • 3-4 tsp grass-fed butter

How to Prepare:

  1. if adding bacon, place the bacon in the oven to cook for 20 minutes (or use a stash of pre-cooked bacon if you have some)
  2. wash, dry and halve the peaches. carve out the pits & any crispy brown areas
  3. cut the basil into very fine ribbons and set aside
  4. place peaches face up on a glass baking dish
  5. place 1/2 tsp or less of butter inside each peach “pit” (the cave left where the pit was)
  6. sprinkle a tiny pinch of sea salt over the peaches
  7. scoop 1 TBS of goat cheese into each pit
  8. dress each mound of goat cheese with basil ribbons
  9. top with small bits of cooked bacon (this would also be delicious with chopped prosciutto or even well-chopped salami) – this step is optional
  10. drizzle a fine line of maple syrup over peaches (use as little as possible – you can actually omit this if you like)
  11. set tray in oven at 325 degrees for 20-30 minutes, add an additional 10 minutes if desired to brown the tops at 450 degrees.
  12. remove from oven, let cool, serve and enjoy!
