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…..to 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 also fortunate to have several small local farmer’s markets where 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. This is simmered then poured over the halved peaches so they can start to 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!

Ingredients
  

For the bourbon glaze

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 Tbl butter
  • 1/2 lemon juice only
  • 2 Tbl bourbon
  • 1/4 cup water

For the bacon wrapped peaches

  • 4 ripe peaches halves and pitted
  • 1/2 lb bacon

Instructions
 

For the bourbon glaze

  • Combine all glaze ingredients in a small sauce pan. Bring to a gentle boil for 1 minute, then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes.

For the bacon wrapped peaches

  • Place peach halves in a baking dish. Pour the bourbon glaze over them being sure to coat each peach. Allow to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Cook the bacon lightly, until still soft and "chewy". Reserve.
  • Heat grill or grill-pan to medium-high heat. Grill peach halves cut side down until you have nice grill marks, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, slice peach halves into halves and wrap each piece with a piece of pre-cooked bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Place bacon wrapped peach pieces on grill and cook 2-3 minutes until bacon is nicely browned.
