My sister-in-law made this perfect appetizer for a summer bar-b-que, so easy and yummy (thanks, Stacy!)

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons olive oil
8 slices French bread, 1/2 inch thick
2 large ripe yellow peaches, each sliced into 6 wedges
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1 small shallot, thinly sliced
2 ounces goat cheese
8 sprigs marjoram

Instructions:

Preheat the oven or grill to 400 degrees F (oven) or medium heat (grill).

Brush 2 tablespoons of the olive oil on the bread slices and toast or grill until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.

Toss the remaining tablespoon of olive oil with the peach slices, the lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. String the slices on 2 or 3 skewers. Grill the peaches over a medium flame until slightly charred. Remove from the skewers and toss with the shallots. Spread the goat cheese on the toasted bread and top with 2 to 3 peach slices and a marjoram sprig. Serve warm.
