I love entertaining. I love cooking a big delicious meal and hosting friends and family in our home. But I do think it’s possible to enjoy a great meal that doesn’t require the host to be in the kitchen for the entire time the guests are there. I’m a huge fan of entrees that require minimal attention in the oven, like my perfect roast chicken, and appetizers that come together in just a few minutes, like this one.
With fresh summer peaches, it doesn’t take many ingredients to compliment them and make them shine. Crispy French bread, creamy herb-filled ricotta, and juicy peaches topped with honey and sea salt combine all the right flavors without taking a lot of prep time or ingredients.
These little bites of deliciousness will definitely not last long at the next dinner party you host. And the best part? You’ll be enjoying them right alongside your guests.
