This grilled peach and goats cheese crostini is one of my super lazy lunch or supper recipes. OH just knows that it’s that time again whenever peach slices appear on the kitchen counter.
I tend to use my pantry staple (more like freezer staple) sourdough bread for this but a normal baguette would work just as well. I also find that a balsamic vinaigrette dressing really complements the flavour of the grilled peaches so you can very easily substitute this for or add it to the honey. And toasted nuts can give this some extra crunch.
You know what, a few years ago I would have called this a peach and goats cheese bruschetta. Luckily, I looked up the difference between a bruschetta and a crostini and it turns out that if it does not have garlic rubbed on it then it’s a crostini. So I guess I will not be embarrassing myself today with the wrong name .
I hope you all enjoy the last few weeks of summer with this grilled peach and goats cheese crostini and please don’t forget to leave me a comment about what variations you have one yours.
