As good as they were on their own, we decided to kick them up a notch by wrapping them in bacon (oh yes I did) and putting them back on the grill to infuse a bit of the smokey bacon flavor… the sweet juicy peaches.

They’re down right sexy!

Full disclosure, this is the third time we’ve made these peaches in the past two weeks. It helps that we live in the land of peaches. Sweet Georgia Peaches!! We are fortunate to have several small local farmer’s markets. That’s where we find gorgeous baskets of peaches and bunches of fresh cut flowers are plentiful.

The bourbon glaze for the peaches consists of bourbon, butter, lemon juice, brown sugar, and a little water. Once simmered, the glaze is poured over the halved peaches. They drink up the yummy flavors.

After the peaches bath in the warm bourbon glaze for about 30 minutes you’re left with the most heavenly sweet peachy liquid gold.

And the Warm Bacon Bourbon Peach Dressing was born.

When you’ve got warm bacon dressing, a spinach salad is always in order. Oh how I love the Spinach Salad!

Bacon Wrapped Bourbon Glazed Grilled Peaches are a lovely side dish for any brunch!
