Crostini or Grilled Bread
Grilled Bread: Heat grill or grill pan over medium heat. Brush baguette slices lightly with olive oil. Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side, until marks appear or toasted. Remove from heat, let cool slightly so that you can handle the slices, and rub a peeled garlic clove on one side of the bread if desired.
Crostini: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Brush each side of the baguette slices with olive oil and place them on a large baking sheet. Bake for 5-7 minutes on each side until golden brown. Let cool slightly so that you can handle the slices, and rub a peeled garlic clove on one side of the bread if desired.
Burrata Pesto Dip
On a serving plate, layer tomato jam, pesto, and burrata. You can cut open the burrata or leave it intact until serving time. Sprinkle the burrata with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Serve with the grilled bread or crostini (or another dipping/spreading vehicle of choice) and a knife for spreading. You can also dip, depending on the thickness of the burrata's exterior. Enjoy!
You can use storebought tomato jam and/or pesto for fast assembly, or you can make the tomato jam ahead of time, as it does require around a 2-hour roast time.Nutrition calculations are estimates.
