Grilled Peach Bruschetta – Sweet, savory, tangy, crisp, and creamy perfectly describes bruschetta. Slices of crusty, toasted baguette are topped with goat cheese, peaches, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
This easy appetizer recipe is a deliciously simple appetizer or snack.
My husband and I love to cook and entertain. But, one key to successfully entertaining, even if you enjoy cooking, is to keep it simple. At least, keep most recipes simple and choose one star of the meal. For this reason, I have a handful of favorite and easy appetizer, side, and dessert recipes. We tend to let the entree be the harder recipe.
During the summer, I incorporate fresh produce whenever I can and Grilled Peach Bruschetta is always a popular appetizer to serve. It’s quick, easy, bright, and light.
Grilled Peach Bruschetta Tips
- Slice your baguette either in round or diagonal slices. They need to be small.
- You can toast them in the oven or grill it. However, I prefer it browned in a skillet on the stove.
- This Grilled Peach Bruschetta is tasty with either basil or mint.
- As well, fresh mozzarella is a great substitute for goat cheese. You can also use blue cheese!
- The combination of honey and balsamic reduction makes a nice sweet, tangy combination. You can use one or both.
If you’re a cheese fan (and a peach fan), make this recipe stat! This dish is perfect for a summertime party and sharing.

Peaches REALLY improve everything lately. They work so well in savory-ish dishes!! The bruschetta is gorgeous, Paula!
Thanks Heather! I think so too, I am beginning to like fruits in savory dishes.

I have really been into cooked peaches… this sounds wonderful.
Thanks Diane! Me too, I used to like them except in cobblers, but like them more and more.

Wow Paula, love this combination. The sweet from the peaches and salty from the feta sounds awesome! Great appetizer, pinning and sharing! 🙂
Thank you Krista! I like feta with just about anything! Thanks for sharing!
Mmm…peaches…I miss Georgia peaches. I went to school In Atlanta and remember eating them like there’s no tomorrow. Peaches and balsamic really pair well together, don’t they?
Yes, I love the combo, and I could drink balsamic reduction, I think 🙂
This looks fresh and delicious, Paula! I’m in love with fresh peaches right now.
Me too Marcie, I’ve eaten them plain, grilled and in salads the last few days, but sadly I don’t have any more right now 🙁

Paula, I’ve never grilled peaches before but I imagine it would bring out their summer sweetness to perfection. Next time I pull out the panini grill I’m going to throw some peaches on it to make this bruschetta 🙂
A panini grill would be perfect! Grilling makes them really sweet and yummy, let me know when you try them!
