Ingredients

  • 12 slices of a french baguette
  • 24-36 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil plus more for drizzle
  • 1/2 cup burrata
  • fresh basil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Add cherry tomatoes to a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil, salt, pepper and toss, ensuring tomatoes are coated in olive oil.

  2. Place baking sheet in oven. Roast the tomatoes for approximately 30 minutes, or until they burst and release their juices.

  3. Prepare the bread toasts by baking, grilling or frying them.

  4. Remove the tomatoes from the oven.

  5. Top the toasted bread with burrata, then 2-3 tomatoes per slices. Drizzle with more extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil. Serve immediately!

Recipe Notes

  • The best tomatoes to use for these crostini are cherry tomatoes. They are the best because they're sweet already, but become even sweeter when roasted. If you can't find cherry tomatoes, you can use grape tomatoes. I would not recommend using large field tomatoes.
  • The tomatoes are roasted at 400°F but the suggested temperature for baking the bread toasts is 350°F. If baking the tomatoes and bread at the same time, you can bake both at 400°F and reduce the baking time for the bread toasts to 7-8 minutes.
  • You can also cut the tomatoes in half if you'd like instead of leaving them whole
