Burrata & Prosciutto Plate

Simple and fancy!

This delicious dish works great for an appetizer, or if you’re feeling fancy, an afternoon snack! Super simple to throw together but so delicious.


Serves 2

  • Package of burrata (usually comes with two pieces)

  • 1/4lb or 1 container of prepackaged proscuitto. Ask for it really thinly sliced if at the deli counter!

  • Fresh basil

  • Olive oil

  • Balsamic vinegar or a balsamic reduction, which you can buy or make by simmering balsamic vinegar until thickened

  • Flaky sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Step One: Arrange your proscuitto on the plate. It doesn’t need to be perfect – I like to bend the slices in whatever way I think looks good.
Step Two: Cut your burrata into approximately four pieces per ball. You can also tear them instead for a rustic look! Add these to the plate.
Step Three: Chiffonade your basil: roll a couple of leaves up and then slice thinly with a knife. Put these on the plate as well, ideally on top of the burrata.
Step Four: Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic, then sprinkle on salt and as much pepper as you like.

Make it your own:

  • Mozzarella works great as a substitute for the burrata, but you won’t get the same creaminess.

  • Feel free to try different herbs in place of the basil.

  • While I have only made this with proscuitto, you can try this out with mortadella or salami as well.

I’m a stay-at-home mom to two small boys with a background in coffee. I enjoy crocheting and being outdoors, going on hikes and spending time at the beach. I really became interested in food and cooking when I was 11 or 12 after discovering Rachael Ray on the Food Network. My mom was a great cook and I’d spend a lot of time in the kitchen watching her and trying to help her. She’d show me how to cook something and I’d write down the steps in a notebook. My dad was a baker his entire life but unfortunately that skill skipped my generation.
