You have no idea how long I have been waiting to create this recipe for Burrata Toast with Tomatoes. So, yesterday I told the Hubby I was making Italian Wedding Soup. He wanted some sort of sandwich to go along with the soup. This toast immediately popped into my head. What an elegant, yet inventive way to enjoy soup and a sandwich. Honestly, he was working late and I wanted to catch the sunlight for photos. So, I had to put this dish together about an hour ahead of time. Of course, I was worrying the entire time that the bread would get too soggy. It did not. In fact, it was perfect.
I chose a harvest wheat bread. The combination of wheat, rolled oats, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds made for the most perfect base. Feel free to substitute with a bread of your liking. Just be sure it is hearty enough to hold up to the tomatoes. Slice it up relatively thick and toast to perfection. The juices from the tomatoes soaked into the bread leaving the outer crust nice and crunchy. The explosion of flavors combined with the creamy, milkiness from the burrata lent to the perfect bite.
Honestly, this Burrata Toast with Tomatoes can be served in under ten minutes. Click here to check out a quick video on how I put all of this together!
HOW TO MAKE BURRATA TOAST WITH TOMATOES
In a bowl, add the halved cherry tomatoes, balsamic glaze and light olive oil. If you do not have balsamic glaze, you can make your own, or substitute with balsamic vinegar. Season with kosher salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper (optional). Add a few torn fresh basil leaves. Mix and allow to sit for a few minutes.
Slice the bread at least an inch thick. Place in toaster, or toaster oven and allow to turn golden brown (do NOT burn). While the toast is warm, rub with the garlic clove.
Place the toast onto individual plates, or a platter. Top each slice with a piece of burrata. Spoon on the tomato mixture. Be sure to add a touch of the lovely sauce you just created.
Gently slice the top of each burrata exposing the small, milky curds. Drizzle a high quality olive oil over the burrata. Luckily, I was gifted a few bottles of this amazing organic olive oil from Manni Oil. If you get a chance, order a few bottles. You will thank me later. The taste of this olive oil is out of this world. It is meant to finish and round out the perfect meal. Season the entire dish with a touch more kosher salt. Garnish with a few more torn fresh basil leaves. ENJOY!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family. My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him. He is known as one of the best skate sharpeners in the world!
Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel!
