Burrata Bruschetta

60 minutes

serves 24

Bruschetta is always a great starter, but this bruschetta is *next level.* This is what I like to call a “special occasion bruschetta” because it’s one of those starters that sets the tone for any gathering or even just a simple date night. It’s so simple, yet so flavorful. You’ve got creamy, rich burrata topped with sweet cherry tomatoes tossed in a mixture of garlic, shallots, basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Top it all off with a balsamic reduction and hot damn. You’ve got yourself a special occasion right there.

I recommend serving the bruschetta as a starter, but honestly, if you’re a party oof one kind of person, feel free to just make a sandwich for yourself with these ingredients on some toasted bread. All. The. Yes.

NOTE: If making a balsamic reduction, make the reduction before you make the bruschetta so it has time to cool.

Heat a sauce pan over medium high heat. Pour the balsamic vinegar into the sauce pan and heat until it begins to boil. Mix every so often, letting it boil for 3-5 minutes, until the liquid reduces to about half the amount and has a thicker, syrupy consistency. To make sure it's ready, dip a spoon into the glaze and if it coats the spoon and sticks to the spoon when you take it out, then its ready.

Pour it into a jar or glass to cool in the fridge while you make the bruschetta.

In a bowl, combine the sliced tomatoes, minced shallots, minced garlic, basil, 2 tbsp of olive oil, and 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar. Mix together and then add salt and pepper to taste. Set the tomato mixture aside and let those tomatoes soak in all that flavaaaa!!!

Set the oven broiler to high.

Spread out the slices of bread onto a sheet pan. (They should be cozy but not overcrowded.) Drizzle olive oil on top of the slices of bread. Put into the oven on the second highest rack and broil for 2-3 minutes. Keep a very close eye on them as they are toasting, because every broiler is different and they can be toasted within 1 minute if you have a gas broiler!

If you do want to make this ahead of time, you can make the balsamic reduction weeks ahead. You can also prepare the tomato mixture and set it in the fridge in an air-tight container for a few days. I would make it the night before, and then just toast the bread and assemble the bruschetta the next day.
