Burrata bruschetta is a delicious way to serve burrata cheese with tomatoes.


what is burrata

Burrata is a fresh and creamy cow-milk cheese from Puglia. It is a firm mozzarella-like sack containing cheese filaments and cream, together called “stracciatella”. 


how to serve burrata

You should serve burrata fresh, no cooking, or, in rare cases, just a hit of heat. It is delicious alone, with toasted bread, with tomatoes, on pizza (after it is cooked), and on some pasta dishes.

But to me, the burrata bruschetta is the best burrata dish. A comforting, crunchy, full-flavored, slice of bread that brings to your tastebuds the creaminess of the burrata cheese and the peaky flavors of the tomatoes and their cooking juices.

Author Claudia Rinaldi | Gourmet Project


  • 1 Italian bread or french baguette
  • 14 oz cherry tomatoes 400 gr
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 10 oz burrata cheese 300 gr



  1. Preheat oven to 180°C-350°F.
  2. Clean and cut in half the tomatoes. Display them on an oven sheet (with parchment paper) and sprinkle them with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Bake 30-40 minutes, until you see the first crusts forming.
  3. Meanwhile, blend the burrata with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and a teaspoon of salt, until you get a smooth cream.
  4. Slice the baguette 1.5 inches (4 cm).

  5. When the oven roasted tomatoes are done, toast the bread slices until crispy and lightly brown (about 4 minutes).
  6. Finally, spread the burrata cream over the bread slices, add a spoonful of oven roasted tomatoes - and garnish with pansies.
