One of my first trips to RH cafe we ordered the burrata upon the waiter’s recommendation. What a great choice that was! If you have never tried burrata, you are missing out. Burrata is a mozzarella cheese infused with cream. When you cut into the mozzarella ball a beautiful creamy center pours out.
This appetizer takes minutes to prepare so you can throw it out to your guests quickly. They will be so impressed and I am sure there will be no leftovers when you are done.
You can either serve it with pita bread, crackers or grilled toast which is my favorite way.Print
Burrata and Grilled Toast
- Prep Time: 5
- Cook Time: 5
- Total Time: 10
- 1 container of Burrata
- 4–5 tablespoons garlic butter sauce (ADD RECIPE)
- 1–2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- Handful of arugula
- optional: crushed pecans (I use the sweet and spicy ones from Trader Joe’s)
- 5–6 Slices of bread
- Cut the crusts off the bread and flatten bread with rolling pin. Brush both sides with butter sauce.
- Place burrata balls on a plate on a bed of arugula, pour remaining garlic sauce over the top, drizzle balsamic and add the crunchy pecans to the top.
- Lightly grill the bread on a hot grill for a couple minutes per side until slightly toasted. Watch this closely becuase it can burn quickly. I would recommend even placing it on the top shelf of the grill.
- If you do not have a grill you can throw it in the oven on 400 for 5-6 minutes.
- Cut toast in quarters and serve with burrata.
- You can usually find burrata in the deli section of cheese of your local store, near the mozerella balls.
- Alternative topping: I have also used a fig jam instead of balsamic and topped with bacon and pecans. This also is very delicious!
