Easy burrata recipe with crusty Italian bread, tangy capers, and pieces of salty prosciutto! You can find burrata cheese in the refrigerator section of your grocery store, near the feta cheese and mozzarella. Serve this burrata appetizer to start a delicious Italian meal with things like chicken piccata, pasta primavera, baked meatballs, or eggplant lasagna.
Tear the bread up into pieces and arrange them, crusty side down, on a sheet pan. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, making sure to spread the evoo over the soft (fleshy) side of the bread. Broil for a couple of minutes, watching carefully for the bread to gain some color.
Arrange the toasted bread pieces on a large platter. Add in the burrata, prosciutto and tomatoes, and top with the remaining ingredients.
Finish with a good dash of kosher salt and black pepper (particularly on the tomatoes and burrata), and a little red pepper flakes, if you don’t mind the heat. Drizzle olive oil all over and serve.
Leftovers and storage: This burrata appetizer is best enjoyed fresh on the day you make it. If you have any leftover, keep it in the fridge for up to 2 days. To keep the toasted pieces of bread as crunchy as possible, separate the toasts from the other ingredients and store it at room temperature in an airtight container.
