Grilled Peach Flatbread with Goat Cheese
Ready in under 15 minutes, this grilled peach flatbread is a must this peach season. Sweet, in-season peaches, goat cheese, balsamic vinegar on top of a warm flatbread is simply perfection!
Is there anything quite like fresh peaches? Something about being able to buy peaches at the store or farmer’s market screams Summer Is Officially Here! I love coming up with creative ways to use in-season produce. And toss that on top of a flatbread…well, that’s a win-win in my book! Plus, I’m more liking to get the kids to eat something a bit different if it’s on a pizza 😉
When are peaches in season?
Florida peaches are in season April and May.
Georgia peaches are in season mid-May to early August.
Tips For Selecting Peaches
When selecting peaches, look for a creamy gold to yellow under color. The red or “blush” of a peach is an indication of variety, not ripeness. Be sure to smell the fruit, it should have a sweet fragrance. Be gentle when selecting peaches, they bruise easy! Learn more about peaches on our Peach Produce Tips page.
Health Benefits Of Peaches
Peaches are a good source of both A and C vitamins. They’re also a great source of dietary fiber. Peach skin contains high levels of antioxidants, which can help protect against harmful free radicals. I absolutely love eating the peach skin, how about you? My husband always peels his and it makes me sad! Peaches may also help improve eye health and reduce the risk of some types of cancer.
Why Grill Peaches
Did you know that grilling fruit makes them even sweeter? Yes! Grilled peaches are a special treat all on their own. Grilling peaches makes them extra sweet and extra juicy. Grill a few extra slices for ice cream for dessert after you have this Grilled Peach Flatbread 😉 We were able to grill our peaches in small slices because we used a grill pan, if your don’t, I recommend grilling peach halves. It’s a sad day when you lose a peach slice to the bottom of your grill!
