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.
I’m all about the grilled peaches this summer, too! Can’t wait to give this recipe a try!
Thank you so much Kelly! I hope you love this one when you get a chance to try it! xTieghan
These look like another amazing addition to your collection of fabulous recipes. I can not wait to try this one!
I hope you absolutely love this one Meredith! Thank you so much! xTieghan
This looks delicious, and I am definitely going to try it at our next barbecue. I can’t wait!
Besides the simple stuff, I also adore your really involved desserts. So if you have another crazy layer cake idea, or maybe a peach-raspberry ice cream cake, don’t hesitate to break that puppy out!
I hope you all love this recipe Julie! Thank you so much! xTieghan
I love the idea of the special dinner and appetizer recipes. Can’t wait to make the peaches this weekend.
I hope you love this Kathy! Thank you! xTieghan
What a cool and unique recipe idea! I am all about peaches right now. 🙂
Joyce, you could try brie. It goes really well with fruit, if you are not a fan of goat cheese.
Thank you so much Aline! I hope you try this! xTieghan
What’s a good substitute for the goat cheese? These sound lovely but I’m not a fan of goat cheese ☹️
Can’t wait to try this!!!
Thank you! xTieghan
Oh my gosh, peaches, proscuitto and goat cheese, only three of my favorite things on earth! Having people over on Friday night and this just made the menu!
Love that! I hope you all enjoy this recipe Linda! Thank you so much! xTieghan
I’ll happily make these tonight when we fire up the grill, if you can help me brainstorm a tasty substitute for goat cheese in this recipe? Maybe something cream cheese or ricotta-based? I love goat cheese, but the people for whom I cook — not so much. There must be a good filling I can use instead?
Hey Jen!! I recommend creamy ricotta cheese OR whipping salty feta cheese (recipe below). You can also use cream cheese, but I would go with ricotta or feta personally. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan
Hi Tieghan, I love that you think about us and ask us what we’d like to see more of. As much as I enjoy pretty much all of your recipes, i think it says a lot about you that you care about what we’d like to see too! One of the many reasons HBH is my favorite recipe destination (that an Nine Favorite Things – always so fun!!). Keep up the great work!!
You are so sweet! I am so glad you love the nine favorite things, because I love creating it! Also, of course I am so appreciative of all of you guys, so I want to know what you like as well! Thank you Jennifer! xTieghan
Wow!!! Delicious!!! My problem, how do I find good peaches?! I never know if they are going to be sweet and yummy!
As always, perfection ??
Hey Kristen! If you can smell the peaches (and they smell delicious) and they are firm, but have a little give (think like the palm of your hand), they are going to be good! I always like to buy my peaches on the firmer side and allow them to ripen for a couple days at home. This ensures less bruising! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan
LOVE entertaining recipes!
So good! I hope you try this! xTieghan
Definitely going to try this!!! Looks delish! If you created more post on entertaining, appetizers, dinner parties etc, that would be great as well.
Thank you so much Bobbi Jo! xTieghan
This looks soooo good and doable! Thank you so much for a wonderful and delicious blog:-) Looking forward to your new book!
So glad you like this and I hope it turns out amazing for you Pernille! Thank you! xTieghan
Love peaches. What can I replace the goat cheese with. Ricotta. Otherwise, perfect.
Thank you Joyce! I hope you love this with ricotta! xTieghan
