the ultimate burrata cheese board!!! this burrata cheese board has burrata three ways (truffle! balsamic! pesto!) & served alongside all the best cheese board snacks. the perfect easy & totally impressive party snack or dish to share whenever you’re entertaining!


Ingredients

Scale

for truffle burrata:

for pesto burrata

  • 1 4-oz ball burrata
  • 12 tablespoons pesto

for balsamic burrata:

  • 1 4-oz ball burrata
  • 12 tablespoons balsamic glaze

crackers & breads of choice:

  • multigrain or seedy crackers
  • grilled Italian bread
  • pita chips
  • etc.

munchies of choice:

  • prosciutto
  • sopressata
  • a variety of olives
  • capers
  • cherry tomatoes
  • figs
  • pickled sweet peppers
  • etc.

Instructions

  1. Prep the burrata: Using a paper towel, pat each ball of burrata as dry as possible, then set onto individual small plates. Top as desired with truffle oil, pesto, reduced balsamic/balsamic glaze, or another topping of choice. You really can’t go wrong! Arrange the burrata on your favorite serving dish or cheese board.
  2. Arrange the cheese board: Arrange the meats, fruits, veggies, crackers, bread, &/or nuts around the prepared burrata. You can place things in small dishes or jars, or arrange them right on the cheese board itself. I find it’s easiest to start with the largest components, then fill in the extra spaces throughout the board with the smaller components. Have fun with it! Enjoy!

Notes

  • This is really just a wireframe. An ultimate burrata cheese board will have any number of these components, but feel free to have fun with it & add in your ultimate cheese board faves!!
  • Truffle oil & truffle salt are a little bougie & can be hard to find. I buy mine, affordably, from Trader Joe’s. You can also order them online. This truffle oil & this truffle salt have great reviews!
  • Balsamic glaze is really similar to reduced balsamic. It’s slightly sweet and has a great syrupy texture. I love the one that Trader Joe’s sells, but you can find some sort of balsamic glaze in a squeeze bottle near the vinegars and oils in most grocery stores. If you want to make your own reduced balsamic at home, simply add a nicely aged balsamic vinegar to a saucepan over medium-low heat and simmer, stirring often, until it has reduced by half.
