The other night, I was famished but had a while to wait for dinner to be ready. Since I’m sort of magic, I whipped this up. It reminded me of a small plate I had at this restaurant once upon a time.
Fast and perfect for summer.
Ricotta and homemade peach jam
Butter your bread
Grill and spread with the ricotta
Sprinkle with salt and pepper then top with peach jam
Or slice and share
GRILLED BREAD WITH RICOTTA AND PEACH JAM
4 large slices, farm bread
4 tablespoons butter, room temp
1 cup, room temperature ricotta (homemade is best but store bought is still yummy) that has been whipped with a whisk or stirred thoroughly
8 tablespoons peach jam (i’m sure any of your favorite jam would do)
sea salt and fresh pepper
instructions and directions:
Heat grill or grill pan to medium.
Butter bread with 1/2 a tablespoon of each side. Grill each side about 1-2 minutes until lightly brown with grill marks. (Watch the bread! Don’t let it burn 🙂 )
Remove from grill and spread each piece on one side, with a thin layer of ricotta, about 2-3 heaping tablespoons. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and a small twist of pepper. “Dribble” each piece with about 2 tablespoons of peach jam.
Eat whole or slice into strips for sharing.
