  • 8 to 10 fresh figs, halved or quartered
  • 8 ounces burrata cheese, or fresh mozzarella!
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 handful fresh basil leaves
  • ΒΌ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • balsamic glaze, for drizzle
  • sliced baguette, fresh or toasted, for serving


  • Slice the figs in half or in quarters depending on how large they are.
  • Pull the burrata cheese apart (or slice the mozzarella) and place it on a plate. Sprinkle all over with salt and pepper. Drizzle with a bit of the olive oil.
  • Top the burrata with the figs. Drizzle on more olive oil. Add in the fresh basil leaves, either chopping them and sprinkling on top or tucking into the figs and burrata.
  • Drizzle all over with balsamic glaze. Serve with toasted baguette slices, like crostini, or fresh sliced baguettes.
