Roasted Red Pepper Bruschetta with Burrata – an easy summer appetizer thrown together in minutes!
Roasted Red Pepper Bruschetta with Burrata – an easy summer appetizer that’s light and fresh! Guaranteed to wow the crowd! I mean, who doesn’t like creamy burrata!
Major distraction. I have about an hour or so to get work done, before I have to go pick Cason up, take a shower, and get ready for a double date.
Having windows open on my browser is always a major distraction. We had people over on the 4th of July for a big pool party and my goal was to try and have patio furniture by then so people wouldn’t be sitting on the floor or the spray deck by the pool. Which may or may not be fine but I’d prefer to have my bum sit on a cushion.
Ya feel me.
I have spent endless hours searching all over the internet trying to find a good deal on patio furniture but also something that I would like. Sucking up the time. The problem is … I COULDN’T FIND ANYTHING!
Any recommendations on places to buy a nice set of cushioned furniture that I can put under a covered patio with a cool looking outdoor rug?
We may not have a place to sit by the pool right now, but at least we’ll have good food. And that should count for something right!
And this Roasted Red Pepper Bruschetta with Burrata will be at the top of the list!
This appetizer screams summer to me! It is light, fresh, grilled and meant to be devoured with people!
The peppers are roasted on the grill right next to the shallots that are slightly charred. Instead of using a regular balsamic vinegar I used a white balsamic vinegar which is a little lighter for the summer!
You could even throw the bread on the grill to char it up if you’d like. (I just opt for the panini press because it’s so easy!)
Once everything is ready to go and tossed together then you drizzle it on top of creamy burrata! Heck yes!! Ya’ll the burrata combined with the bruschetta all on top of crunchy bread. It’s dreamy!
I hope you guys get a chance to enjoy this Roasted Red Pepper Bruschetta this summer, it is absolutely phenomenal!
Bon Appetit friends and happy weekend!
