Now the warm weather has finally arrived, get ready to make this delightful snack to enjoy with a glass of the grape, on the deck or patio, and simply enjoy life. If using a larger bread or two of them (company?), then increase the salsa amount.
- 2 cups of cherry tomatoes, cut in half
- 1 tbs. olive oil
- 1 tbsp. fresh basil, chiffonade cut
- 1 focaccia bread
- 1-2 Burrata cheese bundles
- 1/4 cup smooth salsa
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Toss the tomatoes with the olive oil and spread out in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until the tomatoes become shrivelled. Make sure to turn them over half way through the 30 minute baking time. Let cool down to room temperature, letting it all rest for 25 minutes before continuing on.
Lay the focaccia bread on a parchment lined baking sheet and broil for 2 minutes. Turn over so it becomes golden in colour.
Brush the bread with the salsa. Slice open the Burrata cheese bundle and spread out over the bread. If it is a large bread, then you will need the 2nd bundle.
Spoon the tomato mixture over the cheese and bake in the oven for about 4-6 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the fresh basil. Cut into 2 ” squares and serve warm.
Ooooooooooooohhhh my that is delicious.
