3x Burrata on your Antipasti platter!

What should not be missing from your antipasti drinks board? Burrata of course! Soft, creamy and the ideal basis for a tasty (side) dish in which this cheese takes center stage. A true eye-catcher on your shelf. Do you want to vary with this beautiful product while having drinks? Here I have 3 simple recipes with burrata for your antipasti platter. Drink them!

What is burrata? 

Before you run into the kitchen or frantically look for a fresh ball of burrata in the supermarket, a quick refresher - or introduction - to this fantastic cheese. Burrata is one mozzarella cheese with a liquid core of cream mixed with fine mozzarella fibers (also called stracciatella di burrata). This Italian cheese is perfect for dishes in which you want the soft taste and structure of burrata to come into their own. You can find burrata in the fresh produce section of the delicatessen or among the cheeses in the refrigerated section of your supermarket.


Simple yet delicious

The cream gives burrata a much softer taste than mozzarella and it combines wonderfully with all kinds of other flavors. Yet burrata does not need much decoration and you can also simply eat the ball of cheese with a little good quality olive oil (extra virgin: this means in its purest form) and bread, for example ciabatta. Do you want more with your burrata? Then be sure to check out the 3 different burrata recipes below. Also ideal to vary with the burrata that is standard in our Antipasti drinks box sit.

#1 Caprese style: burrata with tomato 

You will receive this first recipe as standard in the instructions of the Antipasti box. You will immediately receive a fresh burrata with a juicy tomato. All you have to do is add extra virgin olive oil and possibly some freshly ground black pepper (or Italian herbs) and voilà, buon appetito! 


Supplies:

  • 1 ball of burrata
  • 1 tomato 
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
  • To taste: black pepper

In the instructions for our drinks box, we recommend cutting both burrata and tomato into wedges, creating a beautiful edible 'flower' on a plate. Of course, the eye also wants something ;). 

You can get a fun, playful variation with tomatoes by using cherry tomatoes (in 2 colors). Halve the cherry tomatoes and place on a plate. Place the burrata ball on top, sprinkle with olive oil and finish with basil if desired. 

#2 Bruschetta: Burrata with peach & prosciutto 

This is delicious in the summer months, nice and sweet, fresh and creamy on a delicious crispy bruschetta. 

Supplies:

  • Bruschetta (8 pieces)
  • 1 ball of burrata
  • 1 peach 
  • 40 grams of prosciutto ham 
  • extra virgin olive oil (or balsamic cream)
  • Pepper
  • Optional: fresh basil

Tip: make your own bruschetta! Use (old) baguette and sprinkle with olive oil. Fry over medium heat in the pan or toast on a grill until the bread is crispy. Finally, lightly rub a peeled clove of garlic over your toasted sandwiches for extra flavor. It's amazing!

Cut the peach into thin slices. Prepare your (homemade) bruschetta and divide the burrata on a plate or cutting board into as many pieces as the bruschetta rolls you have made. Take a spoon and spoon a portion of burrata with stracciatella onto each bruschetta. Then place 2 peach slices on top. Now tear the prosciutto into small pieces and drape several pieces on top of the peach and burrata. Finally, drizzle the bruschettas with extra virgin olive oil or opt for a drizzle of balsamic cream if you like this. Finish with some pepper and, if desired, a little sea salt and freshly torn basil. Lets eat!

#3 Make it a salad: 

Are you going well and does it sound good to you to combine recipes 1 and 2? Then this one is for you. If you want to serve a larger side dish of burrata with your antipasti platter that can feed enough people, a burrata salad is ideal. You can make a delicious summer burrata salad in no time with the following ingredients:

  • 2 balls of burrata (1 ball extra for every +1 from 3 people)
  • 2 peaches
  • 400 grams of cherry tomatoes or vine tomatoes
  • 70 grams of prosciutto ham 
  • 150 grams of arugula (lamb's lettuce is also recommended)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Pepper
  • Sprig of fresh basil
  • Balsamic cream or balsamic vinegar

Divide some arugula or lamb's lettuce in a shallow plate or salad bowl. Carefully place the burrata in its entirety in the middle. Cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters and divide over the arugula around the burrata ball. Do you use balsamic vinegar? Now sprinkle this over your salad and grind black pepper over the dish. Tear the prosciutto into small pieces and divide between the other products around the burrata. Do you use balsamic cream? Now sprinkle this nicely in straight stripes over the salad. Garnish with some fresh basil and you are ready to go!

And now enjoy a drink from your own antipasti platter!
