These Prosciutto Goat Cheese Stuffed Peaches with Thyme Honey are the perfect no-cook summer appetizer that everyone will LOVE. Market fresh peaches stuffed with creamy lemon basil goat cheese, wrapped in salty prosciutto, then grilled. The peaches caramelize, the goat cheese gets melty, and the prosciutto turns crisp. Then each peach is finished with a sweet drizzle of thyme honey. Delicious. These savory, sweet, and salty peaches scream summertime. This recipe is a great way to use up all the peaches from now until early fall.
Like a lot of people, I kind of have a love-hate relationship with Instagram. It’s a platform that’s a HUGE part of running HBH, and in most ways, I’m actually very grateful for it. But because it’s so important to our business, it can also be a bit overwhelming at times. I think it’s probably this way for many people.
All that said, for the most part, I feel pretty lucky because I truly enjoy using Instagram. 90% of the time I’m only using IG to connect more with all of you, and for that reason, I love IG. It’s so much fun for me to sit down at night and interact with you all through Instagram messages, IG stories, and comments. I love seeing the recipes you guys have made, answering questions, and just getting to know you all. Kind of like we are all real-life friends.
It’s the best.
Ok, so my point here? Last week I did a quick poll on Instagram stories asking you all what you’d like to see more of in August. I always think it’s good to include you guys in the recipe development process. Especially since you all are the ones who will (hopefully) be enjoying it!
The majority of those who participated in my poll had pretty similar responses. More easy dinners for busy nights, simple desserts, and summer salads. Honestly, this was to be expected, since easy dinners and dessert recipes are always the most popular here on HBH.
What surprised me? So many of you were also asking for easy appetizers and entertaining menus. Like SO MANY.
That response got me so excited…and it also got me thinking…
One, I obviously need to incorporate more appetizers into the HBH line up…enter these peaches.
Two, maybe I should be doing more monthly dinner menus. Menus for things like dinner parties with friends and holiday gatherings. Would you guys like this??? It’s exciting me, so I’m thinking about how we can incorporate this into some upcoming posts!
Anyway, just giving Instagram a shout out for helping me to connect with you all.
Now on to these peaches. They are so simple, yet so flavorful, and they scream summertime. Here is how you make them.
Start with the goat cheese. You’ll mix it with fresh lemon, basil, and a pinch of black pepper. Nothing crazy here, but it’s a great combo.
Now, halve the peaches (here is how I do it), stuff some of the goat cheese into each peach, wrap in salty prosciutto, and grill both sides until lightly charred. There really isn’t much to it…kind of hard to mess up, but the end result is delish. And if you’re wondering if the goat cheese will melt out of the peaches, the answer is no. Goat cheese doesn’t really melt much, it just turns incredibly soft and creamy. Meaning these are not messy to make.
Once the peaches are off the grill, drizzle them with honey and top with fresh thyme.
The prosciutto turns crisp, while the cheese inside stays super creamy, and the peaches caramelize and become even sweeter. Each bite is filled with the perfect balance of crispy, salty, creamy, and sweet. It. Is. SO. GOOD.
Truly one of my favorite summer appetizers right now.
The other great thing about this recipe? You can prep the peaches ahead of time to make entertaining a breeze. Once the peaches are wrapped in the prosciutto, you can cover and chill in the fridge for a few hours, or up to 1 day…until you are ready to grill and serve.
Additionally, if you don’t have a grill, these can easily be roasted in the oven. Both cooking methods are equally delicious.
And with that, who all is going to put these peaches on their menu for the weekend? They really are a must. Trust me, once you try this recipe, you’ll be making these every other weekend for the rest of the summer!
PS. If you’re like me and really into peaches right now, try this super easy peach dessert.

- 1. In a medium bowl, stir together the goat cheese, heavy cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, basil, and a pinch of black pepper until it's light and "whipped".2. Using a melon baller or small spoon, scoop out a 1 teaspoon size ball of peach flesh from each peach. Stuff 1 teaspoon or so of the goat cheese into the hole. Wrap 1 piece of prosciutto around each peach, covering most of the goat cheese. Rub the peaches with olive oil.3. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat and brush the grates with oil. Grill the fruit for 2-3 minutes or until light char marks appear, flip and grill another 2-3 minutes. Remove from the grill and immediately drizzle with honey and top with fresh thyme and flaky salt. Serve warm. ENJOY!*Alternately, you can roast the peaches on a baking sheet in a 425-degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the prosciutto is crisp.
Love this. So happy it’s nearly time for peaches to be back on season (in Australia) and I can make this again.
Thanks so much for making this recipe Robyn!! Love to hear that it was enjoyed! xx

Made the goat cheese stuffed peaches wrapped in prosciutto for my son’s bday dinner. So easy!! So, so truly delicious! Everyone raved!! Thank you so much. Will be making again!
Thank you so much Joanne!! I am really glad this turned out so well for you! xTieghan
Every HBH recipe I make is always the best one yet. This one DEFINITELY fits the bill. The only change I’d make is adding even more prosciutto (because you can never have enough) 🙂 I’m going to use the leftover goat cheese mixture on some grilled ciabatta bread later this week!
Amazing!! I am so glad this turned out so well for you, Mari! xTieghan
Have you tried this with figs? Wondering how figs would work.
I haven’t tried this with figs, but sounds like a great idea! I would use as many as you would like. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
Easy, delicious, very impressive looking. I think other soft cheeses (e.g., a mild blue) could also be used. Will definitely make again.
Thank you so much Gay! So glad you enjoyed this! xTieghan
I made this last weekend, as an appetizer before dinner on the deck with some friends. It was such a hit that my partner requested it again to start a dinner party tomorrow with different friends. I always struggle to get my peaches to split cleanly in order to get nice halves, but even the slightly mangled ones look beautiful and taste fantastic when they come off the grill. This will become a summer standard for us.
I am so glad you loved this Sarah! Thank you so much for trying this! xTieghan

Hi Julie, the spoon is from Terrian, link below. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan
These were so easy and incredibly delicious! I roasted in the oven because it was so hot outside to use the grill. I served them at a dinner party and even the picky eaters loved them!!
Wow that is so amazing to hear! Thank you so much for trying this Beth! xTieghan
Love these! So flavorful for a quick and easy app!
So glad you enjoyed this recipe Jorden! Thank you! xTieghan
We’re having a wine dinner soon and this with a little arugula with white balsamic vinegar dressing would be killer! What’s your thoughts about wine pairing? Full bodied Chardonnay or maybe something with more residual sweetness, like a Riesling?
Hi Marsha! To be completely honest I am a novice when it comes to wine, BUT I would a riesling personally. I think that will pair beautifully with the peaches! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan
simple, yet elegant, and they are ‘do ahead.’ What more could an entertainer want!
Agreed! Thank you so much Terri! xTieghan
