Ingredients

  • 1 loaf sourdough bread, sliced can slice large pieces in half
  • 2 large peaches, sliced slightly under-ripe peaches work best
  • 8 oz ricotta cheese
  • honey for drizzling
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • fresh basil, for garnish

Instructions

For The Balsamic Glaze

  1. Cook balsamic vinegar in a small pot over medium heat until it boils. Stir and let simmer until it is reduced by half and becomes thick and syrupy, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

For The Crostini

  1. While glaze is cooking, preheat grill to high heat.

  2. Place the sliced sourdough bread on a baking sheet and brush both sides with olive oil. Do the same for the peaches.

  3. Place the peaches on the grill and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly caramelized. Be careful not to over-cook because they will get mushy.

  4. Once you get the peaches going, add the bread to the grill. Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side.

  5. Remove the toasted bread and peaches from the grill. Spread the ricotta on the bread and drizzle the ricotta with honey. Top with a few peach slices. Next, drizzle the peaches with the balsamic glaze and garnish with fresh basil.
