Burrata Cheese Board with nectarines and roasted tomatoes. Make something easy and special to snack on. Enjoy with friends and family.
Happy Labor Day! I hope everyone is enjoying their time off today. Because Hurricane Ida, I believe they had to shut down one of our water plants so we have been asked to discontinue all nonessential water due to reduced capacity in the water system due to damage from the storm. Shorter showers, no sprinklers and minimize the use of washers and dishwashers until further notice.
We are also now under a Boil Water Advisory. So, we have to use boiled or bottled water for cooking, cleaning, brushing our teeth etc. Hoping this passes soon and we are hanging in there in the meantime.
Burrata Cheese Board
A little Boil Water Advisory isn’t going to stop us from enjoying our long weekend. So, I’m sharing this Burrata Cheese Board today. What are some of your favorite burrata cheese food pairings or combinations? The burrata is absolutely delicious with nectarines or peaches and roasted tomatoes with balsamic glaze. So good!
In keeping with my How To Build a Cheese Board on a Budget, I focused on only two cheeses and used bread instead of crackers. Toasting bread in olive oil is the best thing in my opinion. Rubbing some fresh garlic on top of that, even better. Top the toasted bread with some burrata cheese and then top with nectarines or roasted tomatoes and drizzle on some balsamic glaze and you have heaven.
