  • 6 cups ½-inch sliced heirloom tomatoes (from about 8 large tomatoes)
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 large garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • ½ teaspoon flaked sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 long baguette, cut on slight diagonal into ½-inch thick slices
  • 16 ounces burrata cheese, drained
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish
  • Cooking Directions

    Combine the tomatoes, ½ cup olive oil, garlic, sea salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix gently to blend. Cover and set aside at room temperature for up to 1 hour to allow the flavors to blend.

    Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350°F.

    Arrange the baguette slices in a single layer on 2 large baking sheets, brush with remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

    Bake at 350°F for 6 minutes.

    On a large platter, spoon tomato mixture next to burrata and toasted baguette slices. Garnish with basil leaves.
