Grilled Peach and Burrata Crostini Recipe
Grilled Peach and Burrata Crostini is an easy to make appetizer for all those fresh summer peaches! Grilled baguette slices topped with creamy burrata, grilled peach slices and a drizzle of pesto and balsamic glaze. It’s the perfect sweet and savory summer bite!
Burrata is an Italian cow’s milk cheese that’s made of mozzarella and cream. The exterior is a solid shell of fresh mozzarella that encapsulates a filling made of cream and shreds of stretched mozzarella curd. Burrata is best served at room temperature for the best flavor and texture. You want that creamy filling to come oozing out when you slice into it. Along with using it as a spread on this crostini, it is also a wonderful topping on pizza.
Along with the burrata, the second most important component of this crostini recipe are the peaches! Grilling peaches might sound intimidating, but it’s so easy.
HOW TO GRILL PEACHES
Cut the ripe peaches in half and remove the pit. Leave the skin on.
Preheat your grill to high and brush the flesh side of the peaches with olive oil.
Place the peaches cut side down on the grill and grill for 2-4 minutes or until gold brown with nice grill marks.
That’s all there is to it. While the peaches grill you will also want to grill the slices of baguette. The process is basically the same. Brush both sides with olive oil, season with salt and pepper if you’d like and grill each side until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side.
To serve the Grilled Peach and Burrata Crostini you can serve it on a platter like I’ve shown in the photos and let everyone build their own. If you prefer to assemble them yourself, spread a thin layer of burrata on the grilled baguette. Top it with a peach slice and drizzle with pesto and balsamic glaze.
This quick and easy summer appetizer will be a hit at your next party or barbecue. If you’re like me, it’s also an excellent light, summer dinner to enjoy al fresco with a glass of white wine or rose!
