This recipe for butter and brown sugar grilled peaches is the perfect dessert and a great thing to serve after a barbeque. Peaches are best when they are fresh and falling off-the-tree ripe, but sometimes you just need a really great recipe for summertime fruits, just like my grilled pineapple.
Buttery Brown Sugar Grilled Peaches
There is just something magical about grilling a peach that turns it into something so much more than just plain fruit.
Despite its usually intense sweetness, grilling gives a peach the perfect level of caramelization, softens up the fruit and it's made even better with some buttery cinnamon and brown sugar.
Serve these grilled peaches after a barbeque for an instant hit of peachy caramel sweetness.
Buttery Brown Sugar Grilled Peaches Ingredients
Check the (rather short) recipe card at the bottom for all the ingredients you need for this recipe.
- Peaches (ripe, but not mushy)
- Brown sugar
- Salted butter
How To Make Buttery Brown Sugar Grilled Peaches
- Wash and fully dry your peaches
- Run a knife around the middle of the peach, running from top to bottom, and then twist gently to pull apart
- Combine the brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon in a small bowl
- Dip the cut end of the half peaches into the mixture, coating completely
- Brush the grates of your grill with oil and turn it to high
- Place the peaches sugar side down onto the grill, and cook until browned. Flip and place more filling inside the peaches. Heat a couple minutes.
- Remove from the heat and top with the remaining brown sugar mixture or ice cream
What To Top Your Buttery Brown Sugar Grilled Peaches With
The best thing to put on top of your grilled peaches is a little more of that leftover brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter mixture.
It might sound strange to put more of the same stuff over the top of your peaches, but the contrast between the fresh, uncooked sugar and the browned, nutty crust on the peaches is otherworldly and has to be tried.
For a creamier, more cooling option try some ice cream like I did, or some whipped cream!
How To Use Leftover Grilled Peaches
Grilled peaches are best enjoyed fresh off the grill and covered in toppings, but for any leftovers, you might have, why not turn them into a salad?
Simply let a few remain naked, without cream or other toppings, and then completely cool before slicing into large pieces.
Mix that with some green leaves like arugula and maybe some bacon, and you've got the makings of a bright, refreshing southern salad!
