For easy packing, keep the toasted crostini, peach mixture, and blue cheese in separate containers. Assemble on site. You'll skip broiling the cheese, but the flavor is equally sublime.

How to Make It

Step 1

Brush baguette slices with olive oil; place on a baking sheet. Broil until toasted and crisp. Cool completely.

Step 2

Toss peaches gently with vinegar. Top crostini with peaches and blue cheese. Sprinkle with pepper, if desired. Broil until cheese is hot, soft, and very lightly browned.

Step 3

I've lived in Savannah Georgia all my life. I've never heard of this recipe, not from my relatives, not in restaurants, not at other Georgian homes. Georgia's "coastal food" IS the "Low Country Boil" served with saltine crackers and cocktail sauce.

So what?  This recipe has NOTHING to do with a "Low Country Boil" or Georgia.......

only way to improve recipie is to fry the peaches first with a thin flour coating,also warm other ingrediants too. This has POW! must like blue cheese or can use a sweet-flavored cream cheese instead. Best for late night
