This time of year, I really love trying new appetizer recipes. I kind of have my tried-and-true cookie recipes that I make for the holidays, but when it comes to appetizers, I like to get creative every year. That might have to change, though, because I have a feeling I’ll be making this Roasted Tomato with Burrata appetizer every year from now on. And year-round!
Roasted Tomatoes and Burrata is an easy and flavorful appetizer that is perfect for the holidays. Roasting tomatoes really intensifies the flavor and is such a simple process. Simply toss tomatoes in olive oil with garlic, salt, and pepper, and let the oven do the work! Serve the roasted tomatoes with creamy burrata cheese and crostini - happy hour has never been so delicious.
The key to this simple appetizer is using high-quality ingredients. With good ingredients, this super simple and fast appetizer recipe will be a staple for you during the summer months!
Tomatoes. The main ingredient is tomatoes, so it’s important to use tomatoes that are hand-picked at the perfect ripeness and rushed to the store for maximum flavor. Bushel Boy Farms’ tomatoes are grown right here in Minnesota and are the tomatoes I always buy. They are grown in high-tech, sustainable greenhouses to deliver summer-fresh tomatoes any time of the year.
Along with the tomatoes, the ingredients in this recipe are really simple. There is olive oil, garlic salt, pepper, burrata, and fresh basil. I told you - so minimal! Don’t let it fool you though, this appetizer is so, so good!
Prepare the tomatoes. Toss the tomatoes in olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl.
Roast the tomatoes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and spread the tomatoes on a prepared baking sheet. Roast the tomatoes until they start to burst open. This takes about 20 minutes in a 400 degree F oven.
Serve. To serve, spoon the roasted tomatoes on top of or aside a ball of burrata cheese, and then serve topped with fresh basil and with crostini. To eat this appetizer, you will cut into the burrata cheese, which is soft compared to the outer part of it. Spread some burrata cheese on a crostini and then top with some roasted tomatoes. Enjoy!
Serve warm or at room temperature. This makes it an easy recipe to prep in advance and one you can set out and not worry about keeping warm.
Store leftovers. If you happen to have any leftovers (how?!) store it in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 days.
Swap the tomatoes. While the recipe card states using grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, really any kind of fresh tomatoes will work! Roma tomatoes and heirloom tomatoes will also work great. Simply chop them into large chunks before roasting.
