Description

Grilled Brie with Peaches and Pesto takes sweet, juicy peaches, nutty pesto and melty, mellow brie and turns them into your new summer grilling obsession.


Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) wheel soft-ripened brie cheese
  • 3 fresh peaches
  • 1 crusty baguette
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto (a bright green pesto is best!)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • Sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat and brush the grates with oil.
  2. Slice the peaches in half and remove the pits.
  3. Slice the baguette into ¼ inch thick slices.
  4. Place baguette slices, peaches (cut side up) and brie wheel on a baking sheet and brush the tops of everything with olive oil.
  5. Put everything on the grill with the olive oiled sides down. Brush the tops of the baguette slices and brie wheel with olive oil while the bottoms are grilling.
  6. Grill until you have beautiful grill marks and then flip the brie and baguette slices.
  7. Remove everything from the grill once the peaches are soft with good grill marks, the brie is melted (about 2-3 minutes per side) and the baguette slices are toasted on both sides.
  8. Transfer the brie to a serving plate.
  9. Dice four of the grilled peach halves. Slice the other two peach halves into thin slices.
  10. Place the diced peaches on top of the grilled brie.
  11. Drizzle with the pesto and garnish with the chopped fresh basil.
  12. Sprinkle it with a little sea salt.
  13. Serve with grilled baguette and peach slices. Enjoy!
