Peach Halves with Mincemeat

Growing up my mom was always the one who hosted the big Holiday meals. She made the most incredible Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners without so much as a hitch every year. Since she made so much food, she devised a couple of dishes that she could make quickly and easily. These peach halves with mincemeat were one of them and they were always such a hit! It is ironic looking back because they were the easiest dish ever and yet they were my favorite. Just goes to show that dishes don’t have to be fancy and time consuming to be fantastic!

This dish can barely even be called a recipe because it is really nothing more than a quick assembly. I laid out a bunch of canned peach halves that were in syrup in my baking dish.

I found the mincemeat easily in my grocery store in the canned fruit section near the peaches. For this recipe I used the fruit based mincemeat, especially since it is less common to find actual meat in it nowadays. The mixture of chopped dried fruit and spices in the mincemeat was the perfect compliment to the syrup peach halves!

I filled the empty pits of each of the peach halves with a big spoonful of that yummy mincemeat. Then they just baked for 20 minutes! That warmed everything up and allowed the sugars to caramelize a little.

It was as easy as that to make these peach halves with mincemeat! I served them hot immediately. Oh my goodness, they brought me right back to my childhood at my mom’s Holiday meals. The spice of the mincemeat was so good with the sweet peaches. They were really the perfect cinchy side dish! I hope you all enjoy this life long favorite of mine. xoxo
