Equipment

  • Large rimmed baking sheet

Ingredients

  • 2 pints mixed cherry tomatoes
  • 4 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 5 garlic cloves, lightly crushed
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. white balsamic vinegar
  • 12 1/2"-1" thick slices baguette or ciabatta, sliced at an angle
  • 8 oz. burrata cheese
  • Fresh torn basil leaves for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
    Empty cherry tomatoes onto a rimmed baking sheet. Add garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper; toss with 2 Tbsp. of the olive oil.
    Roast for 30 minutes, shaking the pan once halfway through. Remove from oven and stir in the vinegar. The tomatoes should be burst and jammy. (If any of the tomatoes haven't burst, lightly press them with the prongs of a fork.)
  • Slice the bread at an angle into 1/2- to 1-inch thick slices, and brush both sides with remaining olive oil.
    Toast the bread in the oven or on a grill pan. (See notes below for specific instructions.) Sprinkle toasted bread with a pinch of sea salt.
  • Break open burrata cheese balls and divide it evenly between each piece of toasted bread, spreading with the back of a spoon.
    Spoon roasted cherry tomato mixture overtop, and garnish with fresh basil.

Notes

There are two methods for making the bread nice and crisp: in the oven or using a grill or grill pan. 
  • Oven: Place the bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake them on the middle rack at 425ºF for 6 to 9 minutes, until they’re crisp and nicely golden. 
  • Grill/Grill Pan: Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill over medium-high heat. Grill the bread slices for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until nice grill marks appear.
