Grilled Sweet and Spicy Peaches

Sure peaches are delicious over ice cream or in a breakfast smoothie or a cobbler or just eaten out of hand. But there's no reason not to include them in an appetizer or main course.

Make this recipe and then spoon it on top of a toasted baguette slice spread with goat cheese. Or use it (again with goat cheese and a pinch of thyme) as a stuffing for a pounded-out chicken breast that you bread and bake.

Grilled Sweet and Spicy Peaches

1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon horseradish
6 ripe peaches, halved
Vegetable cooking spray

Whisk together first 3 ingredients. Brush half of honey mixture evenly over cut sides of peaches.

Coat a cold cooking grate with cooking spray, and place on grill over medium heat (300° to 350°). Arrange peach halves, cut sides up, on grate; grill, covered with grill lid, 3 minutes on each side or until tender and golden. Remove from grill, and brush cut sides of peaches evenly with remaining honey mixture. (Alternatively, grill indoors on the stovetop with a cast iron grill pan.)
