If I could eat nothing but sun gold tomatoes, burrata cheese, some stone fruit and maybe some pizza for the next 4 months, I WOULD BE THRILLED. This Sun Gold Tomato Caprese is true perfection. Sun Golds are what caprese dreams are made of. Next time you see some at your local market, snag a few pints and make this.

If you haven’t heard of Sun Gold Tomatoes before – let me be the first to welcome you to your new go-to tomato. The flavor of Sun Gold tomatoes is superb and gets sweeter the darker it gets. Like many yellow-orange tomatoes, Sun Gold tastes almost fruity and they’re easy to just pop into your mouth, one after the other.

It works as an appetizer if you want to serve with crostini. It can also work as a full meal if you want to just go to town by yourself… which I would highly recommend. No matter what way you slice it, this recipe is one you’ll want on repeat…

  • 2-3 pints sun gold tomatoes quartered

For the Breadcrumbs

Burrata is the perfect creamy complement to the toasted breadcrumbs. If you can’t find it, use fresh mozzarella.
