  • 1 loaf whole grain bread sliced
  • Olive oil
  • 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes halved
  • 8 ounces burrata
  • 3 tablespoons basil pesto
  • Coarse kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • Fresh basil optional


  • Preheat the broiler to high. Arrange bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil on both sides. Broil on the highest oven rack until lightly brown and toasty, about 4 minutes. Flip and toast the other side.
  • Lay tomatoes and burrata in a serving dish and drizzle with olive oil. Drop small spoonfuls of pesto on top and season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes. Garnish with fresh basil leaves.
  • Serve by smearing burrata on toast and topping with a spoonful of the tomatoes.
