This grilled peach dish works well as a summer appetizer or light dessert. Grilled to perfection, topped with tangy, whipped goat cheese, sweet balsamic syrup and fried Marcona almonds, these peaches are simple, yet sophisticated.


  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup soft, goat cheese
  • 10 yellow peaches, halved, pitted (choose ripe, yet firm peaches)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic syrup or aged balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup fried Marcona almonds, roughly chopped
  • Kosher salt


  1. Whip cream: Chill the bowl and whisk attachment of a standing mixer for 5 minutes in the freezer. Beat cream over high speed for 1-2 minutes, or until stiff peaks form. Season with a pinch of salt. Transfer to bowl.
  2. Whip cheese: Using the paddle attachment, whip goat cheese in the same bowl over medium-high speed for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until light a fluffy. Gently fold whipped cream into goat cheese in 2 additions. Taste for seasoning.
  3. Grill peaches: Heat grill pan to medium-high to high heat. Brush peaches with oil and sprinkle lightly with salt. Grease grill with additional oil. Grill about 1-3 minutes per side or until charred.
  4. Serve: Scoop about 1 tablespoon of goat cheese filling into hollowed out portion of peaches, drizzle with balsamic syrup and top with nuts. Enjoy.
