If you’re looking for a true taste of Italy, you can’t go wrong with these burrata recipes.
Who doesn’t love this soft, decadent cheese that’s made from a mixture of mozzarella and cream?
The texture of burrata is definitely its most appealing element.
While it looks and feels like solid cheese on the outside, once you cut through the outer casing, you’re met with a creamy, soft, milky texture that’s simply irresistible.
From salads to pizza to pasta and risotto, get ready to make burrata the star of the show!
20 Delicious Recipes That Use Burrata Cheese
1. Burrata Salad
This is a simple recipe, made with just fresh greens, tomatoes, croutons, and, of course, fresh burrata.
While it only has a few ingredients, it certainly makes up for it in the flavor department.
The texture is perfect as well, as the creaminess of the cheese pairs perfectly with the crunch of the croutons.
It’s all topped in a balsamic vinaigrette dressing that adds a delicious finishing touch.
2. Marinated Burrata
Serve this appetizer at your next dinner party, and guests will certainly ask for the recipe.
You’ll need to prep this one ahead of time, as it needs to chill for 2 hours before serving.
But one bite of this garlic-infused burrata spread on fresh Italian bread, and everyone will swoon.
3. Burrata Bruschetta Toasts
If you’re a fan of regular bruschetta, this upgraded version will blow your mind.
Between the burrata, cherry tomatoes, onions, and fresh basil, biting into this crunchy toast is a treat in and of itself.
4. Burrata Pizza
Once you’ve had burrata on pizza, you may never want to go back to mozzarella again!
Keep in mind, however, that the cheese should be the star of the show here, so don’t overload your pie with a bunch of unnecessary toppings.
Personally, I like my burrata pizza with just cheese, garlic, and some crushed tomatoes and maybe fresh basil.
5. Burst Tomato Burrata Pasta
Whenever I really want to indulge, I make this incredible burrata pasta. It’s to die for. I’m not kidding.
Tomatoes, garlic, basil, parmesan, and burrata top this pasta dish, which turns out so ooey-gooey from the cheese, I have to restrain myself so I don’t eat the entire bowl.
6. Golden Sweet Potato Soup with Burrata and Sage Pesto
I can’t lie — soup season is my favorite season. There’s just nothing more comforting than sitting down to a hot bowl of deliciousness on a chilly evening.
The contrast of flavors and textures in this sweet potato and burrata soup is nothing short of wonderful.
It’s hearty, creamy, and silky all at the same time, and the pesto gives it just the right amount of extra oomph.
7. Crockpot Burrata French Onion Soup
The only thing better than soup is a soup that can be made in a Crockpot!
I have always been a sucker for Julia Child’s French onion soup, but once I tried this burrata version? Sorry, Julia, but this one is pretty tough to top.
The combination of the onions and the cheese result in a flavor that’s unlike anything you’ve ever had before.
8. Burrata with Balsamic Tomatoes
This is another one of my favorite appetizers. The tanginess of the balsamic paired with the velvety burrata and tomatoes is a flavor explosion like no other.
I’m actually a fan of just swirling the tomatoes into the cheese and eating it straight, but you can also spread the ingredients onto toasted crostini.
9. Tomato, Peach, and Burrata Salad
If you’re looking for a salad that’s light, fresh, and perfect for warmer temperatures, this tomato, peach, and burrata salad is the one to beat.
At first, I wasn’t sure how peaches would taste along with the cheese, but I’m so glad I tried it!
It turns out peaches and burrata are the perfect pair, to the point where the tomatoes kind of wind up taking a back seat.
10. Roasted Vegetable Lasagna with Burrata
Move over, traditional lasagna. There’s a new lasagna king in town. I like to think of this as a grown-up version of the Italian classic.
Packed with vegetables and creamy burrata, it’s an indulgence for even the most sophisticated palate.
This takes a little extra time to put together, but the result is the most decadent, beautiful lasagna you’ll ever see. Trust me.
11. Eggplant Parmesan with Tomato and Burrata
Eggplant parm is one of my go-to orders anytime we go out for Italian. That’s why I couldn’t wait to try this recipe at home!
Made with burrata instead of mozzarella, it has a lot more depth, plus, the smoothness of the cheese paired with the hearty eggplant is the perfect combination.
12. Peaches, Burrata & Prosciutto with White Balsamic Vinaigrette
Peaches and burrata meet again in this beautiful appetizer recipe.
This is basically just a jazzed-up Caprese salad, where peaches take the place of tomatoes.
Their sweetness tastes amazing with the saltiness of the prosciutto, and of course, the burrata just takes the entire dish to a new level.
13. Lemon Basil Burrata with Garlic Toasts
This lemon basil burrata with garlic toasts is the perfect accompaniment to any Italian meal.
I love to serve this as a starter, especially when I’m looking to serve something refreshing.
While you don’t want to eat too many (or you’ll spoil your dinner), this is still a much lighter alternative than garlic bread or garlic knots.
14. Grilled Peaches with Burrata, Honey, & Pistachios
See? I told you peaches and burrata are a thing. This is yet another appetizer where you’ll top crunchy toasts with fruit and creamy cheese.
The pistachios give this dish such a fun, nutty twist that adds a unique flavor, too.
15. Burrata with Balsamic Cherries and Basil
Cherries and burrata go together just like… peaches and burrata. Is there any fruit that burrata isn’t a good match for?
Spread on freshly grilled bread, this is one dish that is guaranteed to impress your family and friends, especially given just how gorgeous the presentation is.
16. Lemon Basil Risotto With Burrata
I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of a perfectly cooked risotto.
This version combines the tanginess of lemon with the creaminess of the burrata for a risotto that no one will soon forget.
The basil also gives it a distinctly green hue, making the dish almost too pretty to eat.
Whether you serve this as a side dish or as the main event, you really can’t go wrong.
17. Apricot, Cherry & Burrata Salad
This salad is bursting with so much fruit flavor from the apricots and cherries, and the milky burrata is the ideal cheese to balance it out.
Not to mention, the contrast of the red, orange, green, and white colors make this salad look even more appetizing.
18. Tomato, Avocado, and Burrata Flatbread
This flatbread is pretty much the love child of a traditional pizza and avocado toast, which is why I can’t get enough of it. It’s two of my favorite things in one!
This dish is best served in summer, as it’s grilled, but you can always adapt it year-round by cooking it in the oven.
Either way, you just might discover that tomato, avocado, and burrata are your new favorite pizza and flatbread toppings!
19. Campanelle with White Beans, Lemon, and Burrata
This is truly a restaurant-worthy dish, if I ever saw one. It’s delicious, beautiful, and reminds me of something you’d have when dining on the coast of Italy.
If you’ve never tried campanelle pasta before, you’re in for a treat. It’s the perfect pasta to soak up all of that wonderful melted burrata.
20. Strawberry Salad with Burrata
This is another gorgeous, yet simple summer salad that marries the sweetness of berries with the smoothness of burrata.
The flavors are so on point, but what really takes it over the top is the homemade croutons.
This dish is reminiscent of a traditional Italian Panzanella. You’ll love it.
