Charleston Peach Toast


8 slices pecan whole wheat bread, sliced to 1-inch thickness

Extra virgin olive oil, as desired

Fine sea salt, as desired

4 local peaches, sliced

Several thin slices of Benton’s country ham

⅓ pound Brie, softened (from Charleston Cheesehouse, if possible)

1 ounce local honey

2 ounces local arugula


  1. Slice bread, drizzle with oil, and season with salt. Grill lightly on both sides until crisp and barely charred. Toasting is an acceptable alternative if grilling is not an option.
  2. Slather bread moderately with softened Brie. Arrange country ham and peaches on top. Follow with a little bit of arugula and finish with a light drizzle of honey. Serve immediately.
