These are wonderful! I serve these as dessert, but they could be served as an appetizer or side dish. Just wonderful! From Bobby Flay.

A simple appetizer or dessert blending sweet fruit, tangy blue cheese, and sharp fresh pepper. I used in-season peaches rather than nectarines, and cooked these inside in the broiler. I think they're best with just a touch of honey, not a dousing, or perhaps would be good with sprinkle of raw sugar instead. I had trouble turning one of them, so just let it cook cut side down the whole time, which turned out fine.
