Tomatoes and Burrata
Level: Easy
Total: 40 min
Active: 20 min
Yield: 4 servings


2 (8- to 10-ounce) balls of fresh burrata cheese
16 to 20 (2-inch diameter) heirloom tomatoes
Good olive oil
Aged balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
20 fresh basil leaves, julienned
Fleur de sel or sea salt
Garlic Toasts (recipe follows)

Garlic Toasts:
1 baguette
1/4 cup good olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, halved lengthwise


Cut each ball of cheese in half crosswise and place the halves, cut side down, on 4 salad plates. Cut each tomato in half through the stem end and distribute them around the burrata. Drizzle the tomatoes and burrata generously with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper. Scatter the basil on the salads, sprinkle with fleur de sel, and serve with Garlic Toasts.

Garlic Toasts:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Slice the baguette diagonally into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Depending on the size of the baguette, you should get 20 to 25 slices.

Lay the slices in one layer on a baking sheet, brush each with olive oil, and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Bake the toasts for 15 to 20 minutes, until they are browned and crisp. As soon as they are cool enough to handle, rub one side of the toasts with the cut side of the garlic. Serve at room temperature.

The seeds have been passed down from generation to generation!

Yes that is how seeds work. 😉😋

I’m surprised she didn’t get her tomatoes from a can, the way she usually does.

I had a joke to tell but it was cheesy.

Seriously though I learned something new.

Latee Dytie on August 11, 2020

That looks soooo yummy and super simple I’ve gotta make this!! I’ll have to look around for the burrata. Thanks for sharing 😊

So elegant.

Colin Few on August 11, 2020

This looks fantastic, but I don't think I've ever seen burrata. Certainly not in a regular super market. I'm sure it would be great with regular fresh moz.

Time is short very short… Our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back really soon… Accept him, with him comes eternal life securing that is extremely important… ..
For those who want to know Jesus Christ, my precious saviour say this salvation prayer out loud " Dear God I come to you a sinner I repent from the bottom of my heart please forgive me. Jesus, I believe that GOD raised you from death I make you Lord in my life baptize me with the fire of the Holy Spirit burn the chains that hold me captive to obeying you. I believe Jesus Christ you are the son of the living God please write my name in the book of life from today Jesus I make you LORD and saviour in my life guide and protect and teach me your word AMEN"

That's all next read the book of John Romans, & Hebrews u will know how precious Jesus Christ is he is amazing and waiting on you

I love this

Mike Orr on March 4, 2021

I just love how low the Food Network has sunken. If its basically just tomatoes and cheese on a cooking channel, then maybe make the cheese or vinaigrette reduction. But this is basically a "cut tomatoes and place on ball of store bough cheese and add some vinaigrette dressing".
There's nothing wrong with something being simple, but use that simplicity to focus on the few details that matter. Rather than a "how to, store bought meal assembly" guide.

When I was around 12 years old, I used to stay up ALL night watching MTV Laguna beach, and then around 5:30am Barefoot contessa would start playing lmao I watched that everyday.
