For me, this is summer on a slice of bread. August is national goat cheese month (no, I don't know who decides these things), and what better way to enjoy chevre than by topping it with sweet, ripe, impossibly juicy peach slices? Mix in a little thyme and black pepper to keep things interesting, and you're looking at a very special treat.

Easy recipe and good although wait until late Summer. I did these with peaches this week and the peaches just weren't that good. Not the recipe's fault. The black pepper really makes the dish. Read More

Delicious! My bread was a bit too fresh but still very tasty. I used peaches but also used strawberries tossed in sushi vinegar (rice vinegar and sugar). Both are great.:) I'm a huge fan of Chef John! My boyfriend and I have watched his videos together since we started dating in 2014--when I get lonely when I travel I listen to Chef John. Read More

Fantastic appetizer! I used a French baguette and trippled the cheese Thyme and pepper. Had to have it in the broiler close to 10 minutes at 6" from heat. It was a HUGE success! I will be making this again for certain! Read More

I love this recipe!!! You can also vary with putting the peaches on the grill first and then really kicking up that summer flavor!! The grill helps if your peaches aren't end of summer perfect quite yet. Read More

Had to use well-drained canned peaches and 1/4 tsp. of dried thyme. For my taste too much olive oil. Next time will use olive oil on only one side of the bread try it with some mint or rosemary instead of thyme; and drizzle a little honey on top instead of more olive oil. Read More
