Happy Sunday!  We love making appetizers from time to time.  Here is a classic Neapolitan dish (aka the Caprese salad) that simply turns crusty bread into Caprese crostini bites!

So easy to make, they’re effortless!

You’ll be glad to know you can make them just minutes before your guests arrive.

What is Burrata Cheese? 

Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese similar to the fresh Buffalo mozzarella, only it’s creamier with a rich and creamy texture inside.  It looks like a mozzarella ball on the outside, but on the inside it is different.  When you cut into a Burrata, the center is soft and so creamy, it melts in your mouth with every bite.

 

Why we LOVE these little Caprese bites? 

Burrata Caprese Crostini Bites are so incredibly light and delicious, everyone will enjoy them.  In fact, you might run out, so make extra!

Some of my family members love the buttery center of the Burrata cheese so much, they smear it on bread and eat it alone.

Burrata can be easily found in most gourmet shops. However,  if you can’t find it, you can easily make these Caprese bites using fresh (Buffalo) mozzarella. 

Either way, both kinds of mozzarella cheeses will work with this appetizer.

You can make this simple Burrata Caprese Bites all year long.

When I came across the mini heirloom cherry tomatoes at the market, I knew they would work perfectly for my appetizer.  The colorful tomatoes always look beautiful with this appetizer.

I made these the other night for my family and they turned out to be a hit!

If you plan on having a larger soiree, just remember to buy extra Burrata cheese.

Not only are these so good, but they also make a pretty colorful presentation!

Burrata Caprese Crostini Bites are made with toasted rustic bread, Burrata cheese, mixed heirloom cherry tomatoes, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, and fresh basil. This appetizer combines the sweet and savory flavors into every bite, making them irresistible and a definite crowd-pleaser.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces (1 container) of Burrata cheese, sliced into thin slices
  • 8 ounces of heirloom cherry tomatoes, sliced into thirds
  • 1 loaf rustic bread, sliced into 3/4-inch thick slices
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 to 3 large cloves of garlic
  • 5 to 6 leaves of fresh basil - chopped
  • salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Slice bread and toast the bread in a toaster or oven until golden brown.
  2. Next, in a small bowl, add the cherry tomatoes, sprinkle a little salt over them, and toss to blend. Set them aside.
  3. In a small glass, pour some extra virgin olive oil.
  4. Working with each slice of bread, one at a time, lightly spoon some olive oil over the bread and rub it over the bread with the back of the spoon. Take a clove of garlic and run it up and down the bread.
  5. Place a slice of Burrata cheese on top, then add a few sliced cherry tomatoes on top and transfer to a serving platter.
  6. Repeat with each slice of bread needed. (Keep in mind, the amount of bread you will need will be determined by the amount of Burrata cheese you slice).
  7. Sprinkle lightly over the crostini with fresh cracked pepper. Scatter on top with fresh chopped basil. Then serve.
  8. Quick Tip: If you make these ahead of time, cover lightly with foil wrap and set aside in a cool place until you are ready to serve. Do not refrigerate (this will cause the bread to get soggy).
  9. Yields: 4 to 6 crostini bites, or more (depending on the size)

    They look beautiful! I love making burrata and marinated tomatoes in the summer with my homegrown cherry tomatoes. I make my guests top their own crostini though πŸ™‚

    Wonderful. I can’t wait till my tomatoes ripen. I love buratta, but I love stracciatella even more. But that might be too messy for the crostini. Great appetizer idea.

    So many things to love about this. Among them, you could easily ramp them up for a crowd, and it wouldn’t kill you with work, but at the same everyone would totally love them. Thanks!
