In Italy, this is often made with pears, but apples hold their shape better on the grill and blend perfectly with honey.


Cooking spray
4 large tart apples, such as Granny Smith, cored, cut in 1/2-inch rings and cut in half again
4 ounces Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, shaved with a vegetable peeler
1/4 cup honey


  1. Spray a grill rack or grill pan with cooking spray and heat until smoking.
  2. Thread apple slices on skewers. Place on grill until warmed through and well marked, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large platter.
  3. Lay cheese over warm apples and drizzle with honey.
