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.

GRILLED BREAD WITH RICOTTA AND PEACH JAM

ingredients: 

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.
