Peach and Blue Cheese Bruschetta Drizzled with Honey

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Grilling Time: about 8 minutes


4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
4 firm but ripe peaches, each cut in half
8 slices Italian or French bread, each about ½ inch thick
Extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
4 ounces crumbled blue cheese (1 cup)
3 tablespoons honey


1. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium-low heat (about 350°F).
2. Stir the cream cheese, sugar, and thyme until blended. Set aside. Lightly brush the peach halves and the bread slices on both sides with oil.
3. Grill the peach halves over direct medium-low heat, with the lid closed, until lightly charred and beginning to soften, about 8 minutes, turning once. During the last minute of grilling time, toast the bread slices over direct heat, turning once or twice. Remove the peaches and the bread from the grill.
4. Spread each bread slice with an equal amount of the cream cheese mixture.
5. Cut the peach halves into ¼-inch slices. Divide the peach slices among the bread slices, overlapping them slightly. Top with the blue cheese and drizzle with the honey. Serve right away.
