GRILLED NECTARINE AND BLUE CHEESE BRUSCHETTE
This is a perfect recipe for our raw, wildflower honey. The nectarines will caramelize and add a charred flavour to the rich cheese and sweet honey. In one small bite, you will hit a variety of flavour profiles from salty, smoky, sweet and creamy.
- 1 teaspoon water
- 2 tablespoons raw wildflower honey, divided
- 2 medium nectarines, quartered
- Cooking spray / oil
- 2 1/2 ounces whole-wheat baguette, cut diagonally into 12 slices
- 1 1/4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (about 1/3 cup)
- 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
Step 1 : Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Step 2 : Combine 1 teaspoon water and 1 teaspoon honey in a small bowl. Rub mixture over cut sides of nectarines.
Step 3 : Arrange nectarines on grill grates coated with cooking spray; grill, uncovered, 2 minutes on each side. Remove from grill; cut each piece into 4 wedges.
Step 4 : Coat bread with cooking spray. Arrange on grill grates; grill 1 minute on 1 side or until lightly browned. Remove from grill. Reduce grill heat to medium.
Step 5 : Divide nectarines evenly over toasted sides of bread. Top evenly with cheese. Arrange on grill grates; grill, covered, 1 1/2 minutes or until cheese softens and bread is toasted on bottom. Arrange toasts on a platter; drizzle with remaining 5 teaspoons honey. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.
