Creamy, dreamy Burrata Toast, served on crunchy sourdough & topped with sweet roasted tomatoes, makes the perfect meal any time of the day.
What is burrata?
Burrata is a soft cow’s milk cheese that could easily be mistaken for fresh mozzarella. That is because the outer shell of Burrata is made of soft mozzarella. Burrata cheese can be identified by its loose texture. When you break into it, you find small, soft cheese curds and cream packaged inside the outer mozzarella shell.
This Italian cheese is traditionally served on pasta, pizza, and salads. But in our opinion, the best way to enjoy the rich, buttery flavor of Burrata Cheese is on top of fresh baked bread. Top it with some roasted tomatoes for the ultimate, satisfying bite. Like our Tomato Tart recipe, it's rich in creamy tomato flavor, but only takes 5 minutes to make.
- BREAD: thick slices of sourdough bread or Italian bread works best
- OLIVE OIL: use the best quality extra virgin olive oil you can afford
- TOMATOES: we used local cherry tomatoes. Heirloom tomatoes, Roma tomatoes, or vine ripe tomatoes also work.
- BURRATA CHEESE:
- GARLIC SEASONING: ground garlic blend or garlic salt
- MICRO GREENS: we used local micro greens. Fresh arugula also works.
- SALT and PEPPER: sea salt and cracked black pepper (to taste)
* see recipe card for quantities.
- ROAST TOMATOES: Place half of the olive oil in a large sauté pan and heat on stove over medium high heat. Add tomatoes and garlic seasoning. Cook while moving pan often (for about 8-10 minutes or until tomatoes have blistered and charred a bit).
- TOAST THE BREAD: Toast each slice of bread in a toaster (or grill it in a grilling pan) Place it on serving platter.
- ASSEMBLE THE TOASTS: Divide Burrata between each slice of toast and top with cherry tomatoes.
- SEASON THE TOASTS:Top Burrata Toast with micro greens, salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle with remaining olive oil.
- PAIR: with a vibrant, crisp white white like Sea Sun Chardonnay.
HINT: If grilling the bread, brush it with a little olive oil or butter first.
- Grilled sourdough bread works best for this recipe because it is soft on the inside and has a nice crunchy crust.
- Serve at room temperature: Burrata tastes best at room temperature, so be sure to remove it from the fridge 30 minutes before serving.
- Cut the burrata just before serving: when you cut a burrata ball, the creamy center will ooze out. So have all of the ingredients ready to go in order to enjoy the fresh, creamy flavor.
We paired Burrata Toast with rich and vibrant Sea Sun Chardonnay. This bright, citrusy Chardonnay perfectly complements each the creamy, sweet bite of this fresh summer recipe.
- SPICE: a sprinkle of red pepper flakes or a drizzle of hot honey add a nice kid to this recipe.
- SWEET: add a drizzle of balsamic glaze or honey to give this toast a sweet kiss.
- TOMATOES: try different kinds of tomatoes to add color and depth to Burrata Toast. We recommend Roma tomatoes or sun sugar tomatoes.
We prefer freshly baked sourdough bread, Italian bread, or thickly sliced Country Bread. A crunchy crust is key.
Fresh Mozzarella, ricotta cheese, or Mascarpone cheese will do in a pinch, but keep in mind there's a reason we call this Burrata Toast.
Burrata is best enjoyed fresh. Serve it immediately after opening. Once the container has been opened, store it in the fridge for no more than 3 days.
