Balsamic Honey Roasted Peaches on Whipped Goat Cheese

By Emily Malloy

Traipse with me on a delectable little journey by way of sweet roasted peaches, a slight tang of goat cheese, and a refreshing taste of basil to finish. Within each bite of this open-faced sandwich, your palate experiences a depth of flavors, while each tremendous in its own right, combine to create a summery symphony.  

To be perfectly honest, this was a lunch I made with only my whims in mind. I had already made the assumption it wouldn't be much to the liking of my four children, who are of a peanut-butter-and-honey-or-bust mindset as of late. Much to my surprise (read: dismay), they were very open to trying this sandwich. Even more to my disbelief (read: selfishness), I had to size my portion down so much because they wanted third and fourth helpings. 

Needless to say, I was both pleased and disappointed! But, mostly pleased.

Ingredients:
One small loaf of sourdough bread, sliced
4 peaches, cut into eighths, pits removed

4 ounces goat cheese, softened
1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon heavy cream
1-2 stems of fresh basil leaves, chopped

1. Preheat the oven to 425.*  While it preheats, in a small bowl, toss the peaches, honey, and vinegar until well coated. Spread out the mixture onto a single layer of a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast for 25-30 minutes, or until nicely browned and fragrant. Set aside.
2. Using a food processor, combine the goat cheese, cream cheese and heavy cream, processing for a minute or two.
