How to make prosciutto wrapped peaches
In just 20 minutes, you'll have the perfect appetizer grilled up and ready to serve!
- Prep the grill, peaches, and prosciutto: This is as easy as preheating your grill, cutting the peaches into quarters, and cutting each piece of prosciutto in half.
- Wrap each peach wedge: Now it's time to take the prosciutto and wrap it around the peach quarters. Once you're done, lightly brush them with oil so they won't stick to the grill.
- Grill: Now the fun part begins! Pop the peaches on the bbq and grill them until the prosciutto is nice and crispy.
- Garnish and serve: These are best served immediately, with some fresh basil leaves, black pepper, and a little balsamic reduction on top. You can also serve with or alongside some cheese, like burrata, goat's cheese, or mozzarella.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use frozen peaches?
Frozen peaches turn quite soft once they thaw, so we don't recommend using them for this recipe.
Can I use bacon instead of prosciutto?
If you'd like to use bacon instead, make sure that it is thin-cut bacon. Thick cut is hard to wrap around the peaches. Also, you'll want to pre-cook the bacon for several minutes before you wrap the peaches. That way the bacon will crisp up nicely on the BBQ.
Do I have to serve these grilled peaches with burrata?
Nope! While we love the combination, they're delicious on their own, too.
