Prosciutto and Blue Cheese Grilled Peaches

The other night we were savoring our grill.  I was concerned it's days were numbered so when we lit her up I decided it was a good time to try out a recipe I had been thinking about for some time.  Grilled peaches seemed to be like a good idea and the fact that we had some prosciutto laying around and just enough blue cheese to dollop on top, our appetizer, or dessert, was set.

Summer is a great time to get creative on the grill.  You can grill everything from peaches to romaine so don't be shy.

For the recipe here's what you'll need.

2 ripe peaches
8 thinly sliced pieces of prosciutto
4 quarter size pieces of blue cheese

Cut your peaches in half and remove the pit.  Wrap 2 pieces of prosciutto each around each peach.

Place the peaches on the grill with the pit-side down and let them cook for just 2-4 minutes. Flip and let them cook for just 2 minutes longer, adding the blue cheese in the last minute so that it'll melt just a bit.

Enjoy them warm by themselves.  I bet they'd be delicious with a peppery arugula salad too.  Next time.
