prosciutto, peaches & a balsamic glaze

prosciutto wrapped peaches

Continuing on with my summer peach obsession, today I’m bringing you a simple & elegant appetizer. Doesn’t it look just gorgeous? We all really enjoyed looking at it for the five minutes it survived before being scarfed down by my rabid foodie friends!

I made two versions: The first (and my favorite) was peach slices wrapped in prosciutto with a smidge of goat cheese tucked beneath it. I love the salty-sweet combo with a creamy surprise. The second (and also very delish) version adds a fresh basil leaf and a drizzle of a balsamic glaze. Both are full of flavor and have that juicy I’m-so-happy-it’s-summer texture.

This recipe makes 8 appetizer bites.

  • 1 fresh summer peach, cut into 8 slices
  • 8 t goat cheese
  • 4 slices prosciutto, each slice cut in half lengthwise
  • 8 basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  1. Boil balsamic until reduced by half and has a syrupy texture. Be careful not to overboil; it will thicken slightly as it cools. Place in a small dipping bowl and set aside.
  2. Place one teaspoon goat cheese on the side of a peach slice. Top goat cheese with a basil leaf (if using) then wrap a prosciutto slice around peach. Place on serving tray.
  3. Serve peaches with balsamic glaze.

I made these twice last week. Once for my husband and daughter(got two thumbs up), and later in the week for a dinner party (they were inhaled). I made both versions. Both are great.
