This toast is my current obsession! Its light and fresh and soooo tasty. It is also so simple and only requires a few ingredients. I love fresh tomatoes, so this really highlights the tomato in raw form – since it is tomato season after all. Gotta take advantage of the fresh tomatoes right now. This is also what I have eaten (maybe even multiple times) every day for the last few weeks…I just can’t seem to get enough of it! You’ve got crunch from the toasty bread, creamy cheese and fresh tomtoes. The olive oil, salt and pepper add just enough seasoning to really bring out the flavors from the cheese and tomatoes, but not too much that it overshadows them becuase they are so flavorful on their own.
- 1 Slice Sourdough
- 1 Heirloom Tomato (can also use regular vine tomatoes)
- 2-3oz Burrata (can also substitute with ricotta or fresh mozzarella)
- ~1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
- Optional: Olive Tapenade or Pesto
- Serves: 1
- Prep Time: 10 Minutes
- Assembly Time: 5 Minutes
- Total Time: 15 Minutes
- Toast your bread in a toaster or toater oven for a few minutes until its crispy on the outside, but still soft in the middle. I use a toaster oven and do about 2-3 minutes per side on the “toast” setting.
- While the bread is toasting, slice the tomatoes to your desired thickness. I prefer thick slices of tomatoes, so mine were ~thicc~ but if you want a more sublte tomato flavor, slice them thinner.
- When the bread is finished toasting*, top it with the burrata – you will want to make a little slit in the top of the burrata so the creamy fill is exposed. Spread it evenly across the toast.
- Top with the tomato slices.
- Lastly, drizzle on the olive oil and sprinkle the salt and pepper.
*if you are using pesto or olive tapenade for extra deliciousness, spread it across the toast before topping with the burrata and tomatoes.
