Burrata and Roasted Tomatoes
This recipe is sponsored by NatureSweet®.
Few things warm the soul like a bold and flavorful home-cooked Italian meal. If you need some robust flavor in your life, give our Burrata and Roasted Tomatoes a try! Made with NatureSweet Glorys® and Cherubs® and featuring crispy bread and delectable cheese, this treat makes a perfect snack or appetizer.
How to Make Burrata and Roasted Tomatoes
This dish is full of savory cheesy flavor and is surprisingly easy to make! You’ll start by halving your NatureSweet® tomatoes then coating them in a seasoning mixture. Now they’re ready to roast along with some garlic cloves.
While the tomatoes are in the oven, prep the baguette with some olive oil and bake it until it’s delightfully crispy. The bread and tomatoes can be cooked at the same temperature and should be ready to come out of the oven within a few minutes of each other. When the tomatoes come out of the oven, squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins and mash them with some olive oil.
Serve this dippable dish by placing the burrata cheese in a shallow bowl, then adding the tomatoes and garlic oil around and on top of it. You can then arrange the baguette slices around the sides of the bowl or serve them on a separate plate. Your friends and family will love scooping gooey cheese and bold tomatoes all over them!
