What is Burrata Cheese?

If you’ve never had burrata, you must try it. It’s typically sold near the “gourmet” refrigerated cheese at the grocery store. You’ll typically find it in a container near fresh mozzarella. It’s sold in similar ball shapes, usually two per container.

The outside of burrata is made from mozzarella, and the inside is a combination of curds and cream. The inside is a bit like super creamy ricotta! This recipe just uses one ball of burrata, but if you need something to do with the other, try it on top of this ratatouille! If you can’t get your hands on burrata, this works well with ricotta, too.

I love that this crostini is a combination of so many delicious flavors. I wasn’t sure if it would be too many, but it works so perfectly! The basil and honey give it a little bit of earthy sweetness, and a pinch of salt just takes it over the top. This recipe only takes a few minutes to assemble, but it’s a perfect appetizer for a party.

Tips for Making Peach Burrata Crostini

  • While it’s delicious served while the bread is still warm, you can easily make this recipe ahead of time and serve it at room temperature. Just be sure not to leave it out for more than two hours, since you don’t want the cheese to spoil.
  • If you can’t find burrata cheese, you can substitute fresh mozzarella. Just be sure to use fresh mozzarella cheese, which is typically sold in a container of water. Shredded mozzarella cheese will not be the same!
  • Feel free to substitute nectarines, if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
