  • grill pan


  • 2 balls Burrata cheese
  • 4 slices Italian bread
  • 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 6-8 leaves fresh basil
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper


  • Prep ingredients by combining sliced tomatoes, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Heat grill pan on medium heat, brush bread with olive oil, and place in pan once hot. Bread will need to be weighed down with another heavy skillet to achieve good grill marks.
  • Remove bread from pan and arrange on serving plate with tomato.
  • Take each ball of burrata cheese, slicing in half and place on top of tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with basil leaves.


If you do not have a grill pan you can just toast the bread.
