Grilled Peaches with Prosciutto

Takes , serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 1 box of Wellington Traditional Water Crackers
  • 6 oz. thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 4-6 medium peaches, depending on size
  • 1 bunch mint leaves (enough for 2 tsp chopped and 30 small sprigs for each cracker)
  • 8 oz. soft cheese (ricotta, goat cheese, cream cheese)
  • 2 tsp honey
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Vegetable oil for grill grates to prevent sticking

Instructions

For the cheese spread:
  1. Mix the soft cheese, honey, chopped mint and cayenne in a bowl and set aside. This can be made a day in advance and refrigerated.
  2. * Try mixing 1/2 goat cheese with 1/2 ricotta or cream cheese!
For the prosciutto and mint:
  1. Slice prosciutto into serving sizes for each cracker and snip mint leaves into 1/2 inch pieces to garnish each cracker. Set aside.
For the peaches:
  1. Heat grill to medium-high.
  2. Slice each peach into 8-12 wedges (depending on size).
  3. Carefully wipe grill grates with light coating of vegetable oil to prevent peaches from sticking. (Fold up paper towel into a tight bundle, using tongs dip it in oil, then rub on grill grates)
  4. Grill peach slices, leaving undisturbed to create sear marks and some caramelization– about 2 minutes depending on the temperature.
To assemble:
  1. Spread each cracker with 1 teaspoon cheese mixture, top with prosciutto, then a peach slice and lastly a sprig of mint.
