Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 balls burrata cheese, cut into quarters
  • 1 baguette, cut into ½ inch slices
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, finely diced
  • 4 leaves fresh basil, sliced chiffonade style
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Place a small sauté pan over medium heat.
  • Once pan is warm add olive oil and garlic. Sauté for 1 minute until garlic is fragrant, being cautious to not burn.
  • Remove pan from the heat. Add the garlic and olive oil to a small bowl to cool while preparing other ingredients.
  • Wash and cut the tomatoes into quarters, finely chop red onion and slice basil leaves into thin strips. Add ingredients to a mixing bowl along with the cooled garlic and olive oil it was cooked in. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
  • Preheat the broiler function of your oven to high. Place the baguette slices on a rimmed baking tray and place on the highest rack directly under the broiler. Watch the bread closely. Toast for a minute per side or until lightly toasted.
  • To assemble the bruschetta add a spoonful of the tomato mixture to each baguette, a 4th of the burrata, and drizzle with balsamic glaze and extra basil. Arrange on a serving platter and serve immediately.

Notes

You can make this appetizer ahead of time by preparing the tomato mixture and refrigerate a day in advance. Do not assemble the bruschetta until you are ready to serve to keep the bread from getting soggy.
