Burrata is a close cousin to Mozzarella. It is a creamy ball of deliciousness waiting to be enjoyed. Milky curds are dipped into hot water, and kneaded into a familiarly springy ball of fresh mozzarella. But then, mozzarella curd scraps are stuffed into the inside of the ball of cheese, and they get topped off with fresh cream. The whole package is sealed up by twisting the mozzarella together in a little knot, and this miracle of a cheese is sent on its way.
Try wrapping Burrata pieces in prosciutto and serving with fresh tomato on crostini for a classic appetizer. You can also add any of the following for a great party platter assortment:
- Zucchini ribbons and roasted red pepper slices
- Diced assorted fruit
- Roasted tomatoes and asparagus topped with bacon pieces
- Salami and chopped olives
