If you live in Nashville and don’t take advantage of the Nashville Farmers’ Market, you are really missing out.  Hunter and I headed over to NFM for some fresh produce and a little money lesson.  With $20 in hand, we were ready to make our purchases.  We picked a great day to go, because The Peach Truck literally just pulled up with their very first crop of fresh Georgia peaches of the season and of course the NFM mainstays were there, too!!

Drunken Peach and Goat Cheese Bites with Crispy Prosciutto

A fun sweet & savory appetizer with your fresh Summer peaches!

Ingredients

    For the Drunken Peaches
  • 1/2 pound fresh peaches, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whiskey
  • For the Goat Cheese
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 box Athens Mini Phyllo Cups
  • 4 slices prosciutto, fried

Instructions

    For the Drunken Peaches
  1. Melt butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar. Add peaces and pour in whiskey. Toss to coat. Saute until peaches are tender and butter mixture has reduced down. About 5 minutes.
  2. For the Goat Cheese
  3. In a small bowl, combine goat cheese, milk and honey. Stir until creamy. Add thyme, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  4. Fry prosciutto in a saute pan over medium high heat. This will crisp up quickly, so watch carefully. Place fried prosciutto on a paper towel. Break into pieces.
  5. Place cups in oven for 5 minutes at 350 degrees F for a crispier bite.
  6. Fill each mini phyllo cup with goat cheese mixture. Top with drunken peaches and garnish with a piece of crispy prosciutto.
