One of Italian cuisine’s wonderful gifts to the world, the crostini is an appetizing variety of snack made by topping dainty pieces of crisp bread with yummy toppings.
While half the charm lies in the olive oil laced bread, the rest of the magic is worked by the lovely combination of toppings that sit on it.
Typically, a variety of cheese is combined with veggies, fruits, herbs or other seasonings and sauces.
In this finger-licking version, burrata cheese comes together with basil and garlic, giving you a flavour that is typical of Italian food.
The Burrata Cheese and Basil Garlic Crostini works great as a starter in any party . Try other crostinis like Avocado and Cherry Tomato Crostini and Ricotta and Basil Crostini .
