Burrata Bruschetta Recipe

Prep Time Cook Time Serves
10m 10m Makes approximately 6 bruschetta slices
There are an endless number of toppings you can use to make your own bruschetta. For this bruschetta recipe I have used burrata as the base of my bruschetta. Burrata is a soft, creamy cheese that goes very well with the crisp bread. Burrata has become a lot more popular in North America in the past few years and therefore more widely available.


  • 15 cherry tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup pitted black olives, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup good quality olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 ciabatta loaf, or any other crusty bread
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 5 ounces burrata cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish


Preheat a grill over medium flame or an oven to 350°F.

In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, shallot, olives, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add more oil if you find the mixture to be dry. Taste and check the seasoning.

Slice the bread crosswise into ½-inch slices. Toast the bread on the grill or in the preheated oven for 5-10 minutes. Once the bread is toasted to your liking, remove from the heat and rub with the peeled garlic.

Top with a smothering of burrata and then spoon the tomato mixture over top, making sure to drizzle some of the oil from the mixture as well. Finish with fresh basil leaves to garnish. Serve immediately.
