Who doesn't love a great summer time BBQ with a delicious spread of grilled treats? So why not try to grill some fruit the next time you fire up the grill :) I'm sharing with you a grilled apricot stuffed with goat cheese and finished with honey & pecans recipe!!

Grilled Apricots with Goat Cheese, Honey & Pecans
Adapted from DomesticFits
6 apricots, pitted and cut in half
3/4 C grated goat milk cheddar from Prince Edward County
1/2 C chopped certified organic pecans, roughly chopped
2 tbsp honey from Ontario Honey Creations
*all the above ingredients are available at their freshest by Basqet! Get them here!
1. Grill the apricots, cut side down for about 2 minutes or until the edges get browned and caramelized. I did this on my stove using a cast iron pan, but if you're grilling outside you can definitely throw these on the BBQ grill for a more charred and grilled effect!
2. Roll the shredded goat milk cheddar cheese into a log that is as thick as the apricot pits. Then simply cut the log into 12 pieces and stuff each apricot with a piece of goat cheese. I liked to roll each piece into a ball so that it essentially replaces where the pit used to sit!
3. Plate the stuffed apricots onto your serving plate and then drizzle the honey all over the. Tip: If your honey isn't runny enough to drizzle, just microwave for about 15 seconds! Then finish off and sprinkle with the chopped pecans! There you have it, a simple and delicious summer treat ready to serve, devour & enjoy!!!
