What is Bruschetta?

Bruschetta, a traditional Italian antipasto, dates back to ancient Rome, where olive growers would toast bread to sample their fresh-pressed oil. Traditionally, it involves rubbing garlic on grilled bread, topping it with ripe tomatoes, olive oil, and basil. This variant, featuring creamy cheese and roasted cherry tomatoes, modernizes the classic bruschetta, offering a rich, tangy twist while preserving the essence of its rustic origins.

Tips for the Best Tomatoes Burrata Bruschetta

  • Opt for a dense, rustic loaf like ciabatta or sourdough. These types of bread provide a sturdy base that can hold up well to the toppings without becoming soggy.
  • Select the ripest cherry tomatoes you can find for the best flavor. Season them with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil before baking. This helps to concentrate their sweetness and enhances their natural flavors.
  • Fresh basil leaves bring a fragrant, herbaceous note to the bruschetta. Tear the leaves by hand to release their essential oils and scatter them generously over the top for maximum flavor impact.

What Are The Best Tomatoes To Use for This Recipe?

The best types of tomatoes for this bruschetta recipe are cherry tomatoes. They are ideal because they are sweet, juicy, and small, which makes them perfect for topping the bread without overwhelming it. Their size allows them to roast quickly and evenly, enhancing their natural sweetness and flavor, which pairs beautifully with the creamy cheese and fresh basil.

Can I Substitute the Burrata With Another Type of Cheese?

You can substitute burrata cheese with fresh mozzarella or ricotta cheese: both options provide a creamy texture and mild flavor that complement the tomatoes and basil well.

Can I Make This Ahead?

This bruschetta can be partially made ahead of time. You can prepare and roast the cherry tomatoes and toast the bread in advance. However, it’s best to assemble the bruschetta just before serving to maintain optimal freshness and texture.

Why is My Bruschetta Soggy?

The bruschetta may become soggy if the bread is not toasted enough, if it's assembled too far in advance, or if too much liquid from the tomatoes or cheese seeps into the bread. To prevent this, toast the bread thoroughly, assemble just before serving, and drain excess liquid from the tomatoes.

How to Prepare Tomatoes Burrata Bruschetta

In an oven-safe pan, place the sliced in half cherry tomatoes and start seasoning them with salt and pepper.

Drizzle them with abundant olive oil and a pressed garlic clove. Then bake them for 15 minutes at 370°F.

In the meantime, toast the bread in a pan where you've melted a knob of butter. Toast it on both sides.

Take the cherry tomatoes out of the oven and start assembling your bruschetta by layering a generous quantity of burrata cheese on the toasted bread.

Add the tomatoes and drizzle them with a little bit of their cooking liquid.
