Easy Recipe For Grilled Bruschetta With Burrata, Honey, and Citrus Oil

Grilled Bruschetta With Burrata, Honey, and Citrus Oil

YumSugar member tsharp25 is really loving burrata cheese right now, and shares one of her favorite ways to enjoy it in our Kitchen Goddess cooking group.


When I ran across a photo of a burrata and honey bruschetta, I just had to have it! At the time, I had never heard of burrata cheese, which is similar to a soft mozzarella with a super creamy center. Now, I see it on menus everywhere — from pizzas to appetizers. It has a mild flavor that pairs perfectly with the sweet honey and citrus-infused olive oil. And don't forget the bread! I used a chewy and crunchy baguette from Trader Joe's, and it made a world of difference. If you want the cheese melted, either top the slices with it while still on the grill, or put the finished crostinis in a warm oven. Be sure to make enough, because it's addicting!

Grilled Bruschetta With Burrata, Honey, and Citrus Oil

Ingredients

1 small loaf rustic baguette
2 garlic cloves
8-ounce tub burrata cheese, two balls
Up to 2 tablespoons light olive oil, to taste
Grapefruit, lemon, and orange zest
Up to 2 tablespoons honey, to taste

Directions

  1. Warm light olive oil almost to boiling, then turn off the heat and add citrus zest. Let steep for about an hour or until cooled. Then drain and refrigerate whatever you don't use. Note: this could be done a day ahead or you could substitute with store-bought citrus-infused oil.
  2. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium heat.
  3. Slice the bread into 12 1/4-inch thick slices and toast on the grill until golden brown on both sides to make crostini.
  4. While the bread is still hot from the grill, rub one side with the garlic cloves and set aside.
  5. Top each crostini with a scoop of the burrata cheese.
  6. Drizzle with olive oil and honey.

Serves 6.

This looks incredible! I love burrata, but am never very creative with how to prepare it -- I usually just shovel it in. Definitely have to try this!

I just went to the grocery store and plan to make this, but had to buy soft goat cheese because they didn't have burrata. Hope it works out okay ?!?! It's just for me and my bf though, so if not, I'll learn for next time.
