Grilled Peaches – a yummy treat, takes about 10 minutes total, and the only “grill” you need is a cast-iron skillet grill!
So the Fourth of July is coming up, and we’re going to a cookout with my family.
Well, it’s kind of a “bring your own dish” kind of thing, so I thought crap, what a I gonna bring?
I wanted something easy to make and easy to package up and transport and something that wouldn’t take too long to make.
I couldn’t think of anything, but my boyfriend suggested we make Grilled Peaches.
He said he’s grown up eating them and they typically eat them for the Fourth of July so I was like that’s perfect! And since it was his idea, I convinced him to help make them!
Only thing is, I’ve never made them or had them before. Well, at least not that I can remember.
So I took myself to the store, got a buttload of peaches (ya know, for trial and error), got back home, went to the kitchen, and started grilling.
Surprisingly, it only took me one try to get the recipe down and they came out almost perfect. I won’t lie, some came out a little burnt, but they still tasted good!
And I quite literally couldn’t get many pictures because my boyfriend came and ate them all before I had the chance.
I even got a picture of him sneaking and eating one!
What you’ll need :
- A few peaches, halved (I did 6 peaches, so 12 halves)
- a stick of unsalted butter, melted
- a teaspoon of cinnamon
- 2-3 tablespoons of sugar
- a cast-iron skillet grill
You can (but don’t have to) start by soaking your peaches (I think this is so they’ll be softer), but as long as your peaches are ripe then you shouldn’t need to. I didn’t soak mine and they still came out beautifully.
They’ll need to be halved, and pitted (removal of the pit).
Once you’ve done that, it’s time for the butter mixture. So, take your melted butter, cinnamon, and sugar and mix it all together. Make sure to let the butter cool off a bit before stirring in the sugar so the sugar doesn’t completely melt.
Now, it’s time to prepare the grill. Place the grill skillet on the stove over medium to low heat.
While that’s heating up, prep the peach halves.
Brush the butter mixture on them and then place them on the grill.
Cook for about 4 minutes then flip and cook for another 4 minutes.
Don’t mind some of them looking burnt, they were just a little extra toasted haha.
Serve with ice cream, whipped cream, mascarpone, caramel, chocolate sauce, etc. The world is literally oyster.
I served mine with homemade whipped cream and caramel sauce.
- 6 peaches (halved and pitted)
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp sugar
- Whipped Cream (for topping)
- Put the cast iron grill on the stove on medium-low heat. Wash and cut the peaches in half and removed the pits.
- Melt the butter and mix it with the cinnamon and sugar. Brush this mixture onto all sides of the peaches.
- Place the peaches cut side down on to the grill and cook for about 4 minutes then flip and cook for about another 4 minutes.
- Remove from heat and top with whipped cream (or whatever toppings you feel like).
