Looking for a way to impress guests or nourish yourself with the absolute best snack? Here’s my recipe for Crostino Burrata which is loved by anyone who sets eyes on it, including my 6 million friends on TikTok, who made this a viral hit! Celebrate those end-of-summer tomatoes in all their glory with this super simple recipe.
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 loaf of Italian bread, cut in half lengthwise, then widthwise
½ pound cherry tomatoes, halved
A pinch of salt
3 garlic cloves, divided
2 (8 ounce) balls of fresh burrata
A bunch of basil leaves
Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Place tomatoes in a small baking dish and add 2 tablespoons olive oil, a pinch of salt, and 2 cloves of minced garlic. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes.
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add bread cut side down, and grill until golden brown and crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Use the remaining whole peeled garlic clove to rub the toasted bread with.
Using a butter knife, spread the burrata over the toasted bread's surface. Top with the cherry tomatoes and finish with fresh basil.
