Burrata Tomato Toast – it’s the perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner ESPECIALLY because most of us across the states are living in an Indian Summer and it’s 90 freaking degrees in September!
I’m ALMOST ready for fall… almost. But seeing as how I just got home from my favorite farmers market, and there are still tomatoes and strawberries coming out of every corner, I’m still functioning as if it’s summer.
Earlier this summer, while we were in Peru, we stumbled across the cutest cafe (basically of all times) called El Pan de la Chola and poked out heads in. In typical form, we had just finished one meal, weren’t even remotely hungry, but ended up ordering a handful of things on the menu because the cafe was churning out the most beautiful bread of all times. One of the combos couldn’t have been more on brand – burrata, tomato, toast, thyme, salt and pepper. It was perfection. The burrata was creamy and salty and everything I could have ever asked for in life. The itty bitty tomatoes were super sweet – just like the ones at the market this month! And I’ve been making it on repeat since coming home. Between this and my avocado toast obsession, chances are I might just turn into a giant piece of bread at any moment. Whatever… I’ll deal.
- 5-6 thick pieces of bread
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra as needed
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes
- 2 balls burrata cheese
- fresh thyme
- salt and pepper
- Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Drizzle the bread with the olive oil on both sides and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes until toasted.
- Once toasty, remove the bread from the oven and carefully rub the garlic clove on top of the bread to infuse it with a little garlic flavor.
- Drizzle the cherry tomatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in a small bowl and add the burrata on top. Dust with fresh thyme leaves and serve.
- To eat - slather a bit of the burrata onto a pieces of toast with a few cherry tomatoes. Makes for the perfect snack, brunch item, lunch or simple dinner!
