|8 0z Greek yogurt|
|2 tbsp honey|
|zest of 1/2 lemon|
|4 large peaches, halved and pitted|
|8 strips bacon|
|1/4 cup dark brown sugar|
|1 tbsp butter|
Prep yogurt dip ahead of time-
Spoon yogurt in serving dish or small bowl.
Stir in honey and lemon zest.
Cover and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Prep and Cook Peaches-
Wash, half, and pit peaches. Pat dry peaches for excessive water.
Wrap each peach half with 1 strip of bacon. Secure each bacon end with toothpick.
Heat a cast iron grill skillet at medium heat. Melt butter, then turn heat up to medium-high.
Place peaches in skillet, (2-4 at a time, depending on size of skillet) skin side of peach down first.
Cook for 4-5 minutes, then turn over.
In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and water.
Lightly baste each peach with mixture. Over basting will lead to burned bacon and a mushy peach. Not cute.
To ensure bacon fully cooks without peach turning too soft, cover skillet with foil (do not secure) after turning peaches.
Cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until bacon is crisp.
Serve on platter with yogurt dip.
