Summer may be my favorite season, simply because of all of the amazing produce that is available. Specifically all of the stone fruit! I’m talking red plums, black plums, nectarines, peaches, apricots, cherries and more! So this broiled stone fruit toast is easily my favorite breakfast and is the perfect way to celebrate summer. Plus, it takes only 15 minutes to get a piece of one of these delicious toasts in yo belly!
I used a mixture of red plums, black plums, and nectarines for these pictures; however, you can use any stone fruit that you prefer. It works really well with peaches and cherries too!
Broiling is my favorite process to make really juicy, cooked fruit in a short amount of time. It softens the fruit, released sugars and juices, and even does a bit caramelizing too. I don’t add anything to the fruit because it doesn’t need anything- just broiling. It will create fruit that tastes almost like the filling of a cobbler, but without all of the work and waiting for over an hour.
This broiled stone fruit would also be AMAZING on pancakes, yogurt, oatmeal, or a simple vanilla cake! Don’t wait to try this, because the season for peaches and plums always ends too soon. The fruit doesn’t need to be super ripe for you to make this. I’ve tried it with slightly underripe fruit too, and the broiling made it so juicy and sweet, I couldn’t tell the difference.
Looking for more toast toppings? Try my 15 minute strawberry jam! It is so delicious, you just might eat it out of the jar with a spoon!
Want to try broiling other things? If you haven’t tried the broil setting on your oven I highly suggest you do! However, because it is a high concentration of heat, don’t forget to keep an eye on what you are cooking. I love to broil red bell peppers too and I use them in my El Diablo Grilled Cheese, Toasted Bagel Veggie Sandwich, and Spicy Thai Salad. Give them a try!
- 3 red plums
- 2 black plums
- 2 nectarines
- *Or your favorite stone fruit*
- 6 slices of you favorite bread, I like to use bread from a bakery-yum!
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Turn your oven's broiler to high.
- Wash and slice all of the fruit, removing the pits. Place the sliced fruit in a baking pan and place under the broiler for about 10 minutes.
- While the fruit cooks, you can toast you bread in a toaster or a pan on the stove.
- Keep an eye on the fruit and take it out when the fruit begins to blacken, bubble, and has released some juices. To assemble the toast, top it with a couple spoonfuls of fruit and drizzle your desired amount of honey over the top. Enjoy!
