To Make This Honey Balsamic Fig and Burrata Crostini You Will Need:
- crusty bread – I’m using a brown rye bread because that’s what I had on hand.
- olive oil – For brushing on bread before toasting.
- garlic – Rubbed on toasted bread for a subtle garlic flavor.
- burrata – Set this out 20 to 30 minutes prior to using. This makes it more spreadable.
- figs – Lends great texture with sweet honey like flavor.
- honey – For a touch of sweetness.
- balsamic glaze – Reduced balsamic vinegar is sweet and syrupy.
- flaky salt – Enhances the flavors while adding some occasional crunchy texture.
- basil (fresh) – For distinct fresh herbaceous flavor. I use the small and tiny leaves on the plant for this.
- chopped nuts – This is optional, but adds a toasty nutty flavor and texture that works well with al these flavors.
Set your burrata out on the counter at least 20 to 30 minutes before using. Bringing it to room temperature will make it more spreadable. Depending on the size of the burrata, you may need 1 or 2 (4 ounce) balls.
Wash and pat dry your figs before slicing off the set and quartering. I use 1/2 a fig per crostini.
Preheat your oven to 400°.
Lightly spray a rimmed metal baking sheet and place slices of bread down. Drizzle with olive oil and toast in the oven for about 8 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Once toasted, lightly rub the peeled clove of garlic over the top of each slice of toasted bread.
Slice into your burrata and slather about a tablespoon or two onto of each slice. Top with quartered figs and drizzle with honey.
Lastly, top with balsamic glaze, chopped nuts (of your choice), freshly ground black pepper, flaky salt and a few tiny basil leaves.
