Roasted garlic and cherry tomatoes make the perfect topping for creamy burrata cheese. This is my fave appetizer to serve when I'm entertaining.

Garlic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes with Burrata Appetizer Recipe


  • 2 containers cherry tomatoes rinsed
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 TBSP olive oil for tomatoes plus a little extra for crostini
  • Sea Salt
  • Burrata Trader Joe's package comes with 2 balls in one package. Use 1 or both depending on how many guests you have or how much you like cheese.
  • French Baguette


To make the crostini:

  1. Slice the french baguette in pieces of even thickness.
  2. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil on one side and toast on a cookie sheet in a 325 degree oven for approximately 8 minutes.

For tomatoes:

  1. Slice cherry tomatoes in half.
  2. Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil (the tomatoes have natural sugars that will burn on the cookie sheet and make cleaning a real pain!)
  3. Put cut tomatoes on the cookie sheet.
  4. Add 2-3 minced garlic cloves.
  5. Stir to combine and toss with 1 TBSP olive oil.
  6. Roast in a 325 oven for about 20 minutes.
  7. When done, sprinkle generously with Maldon sea salt.
  8. Let cool for a minute. This can be eaten hot or even at room temperature.
  9. To a rimmed dish or bowl, place the Burrata down and then spoon tomatoes over the top.
  10. Spoon on to crostini and eat!
