caprese burrata garlic bread
This bread is actually somewhat dangerous…one, it’s crazy good (yellow burrata cheese) and two, it takes maybe twenty minutes to make. Meaning if you have all the ingredients on hand, which I almost always do, then you can have this in front of you before you know it. I’m not even embarrassed to admit that once I start eating it there’s almost no chance of stopping until all that cheese is gone.
prep time 25 minutes
1 loaf ciabatta bread, halved lengthwise
1/4 cup basil pesto
2 cups heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1 clove garlic, minced or grated
flaky sea salt and fresh pepper
8 ounces burrata cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Spread the pesto on the cut side of the bread and place on a baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the bread is golden and toasted.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss the tomatoes with the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, oregano, and garlic, season with salt and pepper.
Break the balls of burrata over the toasted bread and spread evenly. Top evenly with tomatoes and finish with fresh basil. Season to taste with a little flaky salt. Enjoy!
