Burrata Appetizers with Peaches and Pistachios are perfect for summer happy hour. Just toast the bread, assemble, and serve! The combination of flavors and textures is irresistible.

Creamy burrata. Fresh, juicy peaches. Crunchy pistachios. Crisp arugula. These easy Burrata Appetizers are a texture lover’s dream come true.

  • whole grain baguette is the base of this recipe. I like how the seeds add some extra “crunch” to it. You could also use a regular baguette.
  • Use ripe but not totally soft fresh peaches, so they hold their shape.
  • Burrata can be found near the mozzarella cheese in the specialty cheese section of your local grocery store. If you can’t find it, use fresh mozzarella instead.
  • Fresh arugula adds a pop of color and a bit of crunch.
  • I used salted pistachios. If yours are unsalted, sprinkle some salt on top of the finished appetizers.

These appetizers are such a great way to enjoy peak-season peaches. The slightly salty burrata complements the peaches so nicely, and the salted pistachios add an irresistible crunch.

Ingredients


  • 1 small baguette (I used a whole grain baguette with seeds)
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 (8 oz) ball burrata cheese
  • 2 ripe peaches, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup finely chopped salted pistachios
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Sea salt to taste

Instructions


Preheat oven to 400°F. Slice baguette into ½ inch slices and place in a single layer on a sheet pan. Bake for 8–10 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Let cool.
Meanwhile, toss the arugula with the lemon juice and a pinch of salt.
To assemble, place a few arugula leaves on top of each baguette slice. Use a spoon to scoop up about one tablespoon of the burrata cheese, and place on top of the arugula.
Top the burrata with a peach slice. Repeat the burrata and peach combination for each of the baguette slices.
Transfer the peach & burrata toasts to a serving platter. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Serve immediately.

Tips

  • If you aren’t using salted pistachios, sprinkle the finished toasts lightly with sea salt.
  • I don't recommend making these ahead. The arugula will wilt. Assemble them right before serving.
