  • 1 pound Campari or plum tomatoes
  • 5 cloves fresh garlic smashed and left in peel
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • baguette or other crusty bread
  • 1 small jar pesto
  • 4 ounces burrata cheese
  • balsamic reduction
  • handful fresh basil


  • PREP: Preheat oven to 400°F. Take burrata out of refrigerator so it can come to room temperature. 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: Roast tomato and garlic for about 20 minutes, until tomatoes are starting to caramelize on the edges.
  • SLICE: While the tomatoes are roasting, slice the baguette on a bias into ½ inch slices. Drizzle or brush slices with olive oil and lightly toast until edges are lightly browned.
  • ASSEMBLE: Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of the peels and mash together. Spread on the baguette slices. Spread about 1 teaspoon of pesto onto slices. Top with 1-2 halves of roasted tomatoes. Break apart the burrata by hand and put a piece on each slice. Drizzle with balsamic reduction, and top with a pinch of sea salt and fresh basil.
  • SERVE: Serve immediately at room temperature or slightly warm.


  • You can roast the garlic and tomatoes the  day before, but allow to come to room temperature before serving. 
  • If you have any left over components, store them individually and use within 1-2 days.
