For this recipe you will need: fresh basil, salt & pepper, garlic, plum tomatoes, olive oil, pesto, baguette, balsamic glaze, & burrata

Slice tomatoes in half. In a baking dish, toss tomato halves and garlic cloves (smashed and left in peel) with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.


Roast tomato and garlic for about 20 minutes, until tomatoes are starting to caramelize on the edges.

Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of the peels and mash together. Spread on the baguette slices.


Spread pesto onto slices. Top with halves of roasted tomatoes. Break apart the burrata & put a piece on each slice. Drizzle with balsamic reduction, & top with a pinch of sea salt and fresh basil.


Serve immediately at room temperature or slightly warm.
