Burrata might just be the world’s best cheese. Bold claim, I know, and it’s one that not everyone on our team would agree with (ahem, Chanel and Caroline. Get on board.) There’s something extra delicious and luxurious about this creamy, decadent cheese, which is why I wanted to dedicate some space to some of my favorite burrata recipes. And while I adore a burrata appetizer or a classic cheeseboard, there are so many unexpected ways to incorporate it into meals.
For those who love it as much as I do, you might be surprised to learn that there are wrong ways to use burrata. In my extensive recipe searches, I came across a salmon and burrata sandwich (no, thank you) and way too many recipes that combined burrata and eggs.) Other than those missteps, it’s almost hard to mess up this creamy, delightful cheese from the gods.
If you’re asking, “what’s burrata?” well, let me introduce you. It starts out as fresh mozzarella that gets stuffed with curd and topped off with fresh cream. The whole yummy thing is then sealed up into a ball that’s ready to be broken and ooze its deliciousness all over whatever dish you serve it up in. I’m partial to a peach burrata salad or even a burrata pasta, but I’m itching to try each and every single of the scrumptious recipes listed below.
