Plank-Smoked Peaches and Goat Cheese

Makes: 8 servings
Soak 1 hr Prep 30 mins Grill 18 mins
Plank-Smoked Peaches and Goat Cheese
  • 1  14x6x3/4-inch  maple or apple grilling plank
  • 4  ounces  goat cheese (chevre)
  • 1  teaspoon  snipped fresh basil
  • 1/2  teaspoon  snipped fresh thyme
  • 1/2  teaspoon  snipped fresh chives
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1  teaspoon  olive oil
  • 2  medium  peaches, halved and pitted*
  • 1/3  cup  walnut or pecan halves, coarsely broken
  • 1  tablespoon  honey
  •  Crackers or toasted baguette-style French bread slices

1. At least 1 hour before grilling, soak plank in enough water to cover. Place a weight on plank so it stays submerged during soaking.

2. In a small bowl combine goat cheese, basil, thyme, chives, and pepper. Form the mixture into a mound and coat evenly with oil; set aside.

3. For a charcoal or gas grill, grease grill rack. Place plank on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat until plank begins to crackle and smoke. Meanwhile, place peaches, cut sides down, on grill rack. Grill about 3 minutes or until grill marks appear. Place peaches on the plank; add goat cheese mound and nuts. Cover; grill for 15 to 20 minutes or until peaches are softened and golden.

4. Transfer plank with peaches, goat cheese, and nuts to a serving platter. Cut peaches into wedges. Drizzle goat cheese with honey. Serve with crackers.
