Peaches and Meringue

This peaches and meringue recipe is quick and easy to make, dairy-free, and perfect for summertime!


  • 2 large ripe peaches, halved and pitted
  • 3 tablespoons granulated white, divided
  • 1 large egg white, room temperature
  • optional toppings: crushed graham crackers, chopped nuts, granola, caramel sauce, etc.


  1. Preheat oven broiler.
  2. Places peaches, cut side up, on a baking sheet and sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon sugar per peach half. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat until tops begin to brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, add egg white with a pinch of salt to a mixing bowl and beat with electric mixer (or a hand blender also works well) on medium-high speed until foamy. Gradually add remaining 3 tablespoons sugar, beating briefly until the meringue holds stiff, glossy peaks.
  4. Place a dollop of meringue on each peach half and return to the broiler for 10-15 seconds. Turn off broiler and leave peaches in oven just until tips of meringue are browned, 20-30 seconds.  (Watch very carefully so that the meringue does not burn.)
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with any extra toppings if you would like, and enjoy!
