Now your griiling! Desert on the grill is awesome and this is simply delicious. I went a step further. When plating the peaches, I used grilled pineapple slices as as base for the peach halves and fresh cilantro as garnish. The peach rests nicely in the cavity from the cored pineapple. Read More

This dessert is super rich. I don't think there's any way one person can finish a whole half a peach - it's just soo rich. It does taste good but I only got through two bites. Read More

This dish had a very interesting but delicious taste! I actually prepared this in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. I turned the peaches over cooked them for about 5 minutes more then drizzled the sauce over the peaches added the blue cheese and broiled them until the sauce began to bubble. I believe the flavors tasted much better after they cooled and sat for about 10 minutes. Great Recipe! Read More

check the sugar content against the peaches you use. You may need to add more for tart peaches Read More

This was excellent. Thanks to JDVMD rather than use this as a dessert I served it with lamb chops cooked on the grill. I had only small peaches so for the two of us I used two whole peaches. One caveat - the recipe makes way too much glaze. I hate to waste Balsamic vinegar - next time I'll make half the amount of glaze. My husband and I really enjoyed the flavor. As another reviewer did I baked the peaches further after sprinkling on the bleu cheese. Kind of melds the flavors. I will definitely make this again for ourselves and for company. Will even try it with fresh pears as another reviewer suggested. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

It was delicious and easy to make! I loved the blue cheese my wife did not in the case of a non blue cheese fan I may substitute cream cheese. Read More

I love this recipe. I used port instead of the basalmic because I didn't want to use up that much basalmic. It was tasty! They MUST be eaten right off the grill though. Went to munch on one later that night and it was YUCKY! Read More

Excellent! Made this tonight with some grilled filet mignon and a salad with blue cheese. Incredible flavors. I cannot wait to make this again. It was very quick to prepare and virtually no prep work. I could see trying to put these grilled peaches on top of a salad also. Went superb with a Sonoma cabernet (Gundlach-Bus????). Can't remember how to spell the name. Read More
