Fresh herbsfresh basil leaves, oregano, or thyme
A pinch of flaky sea saltoptional, or kosher salt
Heat a griddle or large cast-iron skillet over medium heat, place the sourdough bread slices onto it, and lightly drizzle with olive oil on both sides. Let it toast for 2-3 minutes per side, or until crispy and golden brown.
Transfer your toasted crusty bread slices to a plate. Spoon the chimichurri on top and spread it evenly. Top each toast with 3 slices of tomato and one sack of burrata. Make sure to tear open the burrata pouch to spread it out over the tomato slices.
Drizzle the top of the burrata with EVOO and season with pepper and red pepper flakes plus fresh herbs (plus flaky salt). Enjoy!
How to storeIf you're planning to make your burrata toast ahead, toast the bread up to 30 minutes before serving. If it sits too long, it will become stale and hard instead of firm and crispy as a toast should be! Moreover, only place the topping right before serving; otherwise, your toast will become soggy! Only make enough to eat right away!
