Grilled Nectarines with Blue Cheese, Honey & Black Pepper
Grilled fruit is so delicious. Nectarines, pineapple, grapes, peaches....so good!
We had some nectarines sitting in the fruit bowl and I really needed another side to go with dinner. I had the meat and a salad but I didn't have any potatoes or rice. I saw the nectarines and thought, I could grill them! I searched for a recipe online that would work with what I already had on hand and I found this one from Food Network. Score!
I only used 2 nectarines since we have a family of 4. Each person gets one half of the nectarine.
Other ingredients you'll need:
Olive oil/vegetable oil
Blue cheese crumbles
Crushed black pepper
Heat the grill. Brush both sides of the halved/pitted nectarine with oil. Place face down on grill and cook for 2-3 minutes. Flip over and finish cooking until almost soft. (I over cooked mine a little bit but they still tasted great! Don't worry about overcooking - just don't burn them!)
Place nectarines on a platter with cut side up and place a dollop of cheese in the center of each nectarine. Drizzle with honey and fresh black pepper on the top. I left the black pepper off for the kiddos.
