Blistered Tomato Bruschetta With Burrata and Sherry

Blistered Tomato Bruschetta With Burrata and Sherry

Plucked from the vine-ripened sugar plumb grape tomatoes, abundantly adorn crunchy rustic Italian Plgasia sliced bread, with the creamy texture of burrata and a delicate note of acid from the sherry makes these appetizers a match made in heaven.
This rustic, sophisticated appetizer is perfect for a glass of the best wine. Meaty, dense sweet tomatoes concentrated with flavor are as perfect together as Penne and Salsa di Pomodoro.

Servings 6 people


  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil  extra virgin + extra for bread
  • 1 shallot  thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove minced and pasted + one garlic clove for the bread
  • 16 ounces sugar plum tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt kosher
  • 1 Tablespoon sherry wine dry Fino or Amontillado Don Benigo
  • 1 loaf Pugliese Bread Italian rustic loaf
  • 8 ounces burrata
  • 1 cup basil fresh julienne sliced (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Malden Sea Salt finishing salt


  • Heat a medium sauté pan on medium-low heat. Add olive oil, shallot, tomatoes and kosher salt. Sauté until the shallot begins to sweat; add the garlic. You will start to hear the tomatoes pop as they warm up. Continue cooking for 10 minutes. 
  • Using a potato masher, gently squish the tomatoes, be careful they sometimes pop open with hot juices. 
  • Add sherry. Reduce the liquid for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool. 
  • In the meantime, cut bread into 1/2-inch thick slices. Brush both sides with olive oil. Grill at 350 degrees until both sides are lightly browned. 
  • Remove bread from the grill and lightly rub each toast with a halved garlic. 
  • Top each toast with tomato mixture. Top with burrata and garnish with fresh basil and Malden finishing salt.
