Heirloom cherry tomatoes or any yummy bite size tomatoes your heart desires
Olive oil for roasting and Extra Virgin Olive Oil for drizzling
4 medium cloves of garlic peeled; not chopped
Sourdough loaf to make crostini
- Place whole cherry tomatoes and cloves of garlic in a minimum 1” inch deep baking pan.
- Generously drizzle regular olive oil all over the tomatoes and garlic.
- Add a pinch of salt and mix well.
- Bake tomatoes and garlic in the oven for 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Remember to stir at 20 minutes.
- In the meantime, let’s cut up the bread! Cut your sourdough bread into crostini size pieces.
- Lightly brush regular olive oil onto the cut sourdough crostini pieces and pop those babies onto a medium heat skillet on the stove. Cook each side of the crostini until it is golden brown. We like our crostini golden and slightly crispy on the outside!
- So now your pan of tomatoes, olive oil and garlic should look like a juicy roasted tomato tapenade. You can pull that out of the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes.
- Arrange your delicious tomatoes and burrata cheese together on a dish. Julienne chop the basil and throw that on top.
- Drizzle Extra Virgin olive oil and aged balsamic over your burrata and tomato masterpiece.
- Last step - take your crunchy and yummy crostini and take a dip in the roasted tomato and burrata.
- You’re welcome :)
