Grilled peaches three ways

by Cathy Monrad

Summer is here and along with it, the height of grilling season. Grilled peaches can be used as an ingredient in any course from appetizer to dessert.

Perfectly grill a peach

  1. 1. Set grill to medium-high heat, 350°F–450°F.
  2. Oil grate thoroughly.
  3. Place peach halves or wedges on grill. Close lid. 
  4. Allow peaches to sear for about 3 minutes. Flip peaches over to sear remaining side. 
  5. Remove from grill and enjoy.

Toast baguette slices.
Smear slices with mascarpone, then drizzle with honey. 
Add grilled peach wedge on top and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.


Add grilled peaches, blueberries, and feta or goat cheese to mixed greens. Add grilled chicken for a main course. Top with your favorite dressing.


Top grilled peach halves with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Sprinkle cinnamon or nutmeg on top.
