Ingredients to make Burrata Toast
- Burrata, also known as Burratina, is a fresh Italian cheese that is the star of the dish! Similar to mozzarella, with a super creamy soft texture on the inside. I recommend purchasing from an Italian deli or grocery for the best quality cheese which makes a huge difference .
If you cant find burrata or burratina, you can also substitute with ricotta cheese
- Ciabatta bread is what I’ve used here, however you can use your favourite bread. Sourdough bread is usually my preferred bread. I recommend using a thicker slice of bread so it can hold all the yummy toppings
- Peach is added to the burratina toast for its lovely sweetness which pairs so well! If peaches aren’t in season, you can also use figs, strawberries or any berries, grapes, and even melon
- Arugula, also known as rocket leaves, is added to the base of the toast. I love it for its peppery flavour. Mixed leaves will also work well
- Extra virgin olive oil is a must, especially with burrata as it works so well. A light drizzle brings out the yummy creaminess
- Balsamic glaze is added right at the end for a sweet tang. It's a thicker version of balsamic vinegar. If you cant get your hands on balsamic glaze not to worry, balsamic vinegar can also be used
What is Burrata?
Burrata which is also known as Burratina, is an Italian fresh cheese made from cow's milk. It's a handmade cheese that looks very similar to fresh mozzarella cheese as it's in the shape of an around bag with tied closure.
The outer shell casing is a firmer solid cheese made from mozzarella and the inside consists of stracciatella and fresh cream. It’s super creamy, soft, and delicate on the inside with a rich buttery flavor.
How do you eat Burrata cheese?
It's best served at room temperature and pairs well with so many ingredients as the flavour is mild with a creamy texture.
Simply drizzle over extra virgin olive oil with a sprinkle of salt and black pepper to start. You can then serve with fruits such as peaches, berries or even melon.
It also works well with savory dishes and ingredients such as fresh tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, served on salads, prosciutto, pizza, pasta of course such as spaghetti, the list goes on and on!

I had been meaning to try a burrata recipe at home for a while now and finally purchased a store bought container. Later I learned that my local Italian deli also carried it, but didn’t ask if it was domestic or imported (from Italy) as it wasn’t in a container. Will find out later.
Since I found and made this recipe on the fly, I had to sun a few ingredients. It did not suffer though. Romain for arugula, frozen strawberries (previously purchased from a local farm), and balsamic for the glaze type. I also used sliced Boudin sourdough bread. Regardless of the above subs, the Burrata toast turned out amazing and super yummy! I look forward to buying the cheese at my local Italian deli and trying it with peaches when they are in season. I’m elated to have found this recipe—THANK YOU for that!
Sounds delicious!! So happy you loved it Netty! I just posted a new recipe yesterday which uses the same cheese! Hopefully you love that too 🙂
