Creamy, sweet, salty, nutty and slightly smokey all at once. These are all the flavors going on in this Burrata with Charred Peaches and Crispy Prosciutto dish. It is truly an outstanding summer appetizer everyone will love!

Burrata with charred peaches, red pepper and crispy prosciutto served on a square platter

Burrata. The famous Italian cheese with the funny name that has a pleasing shape and a smooth texture.

This is an elegant and colorful dish that is really not difficult at all to recreate at home. I would even go so far as to say it’s a piece of cake to make! Impress your friends and family and serve them a dish reminiscent of Italy. Trust me, you’ll be the hero of your own kitchen!

How to serve Burrata

Burrata is the perfect blank canvas to add fresh summer fruits and vegetables to. Including, but not limited to, the charred peaches and pepper. Burrata can be served simply with a drizzle of high quality olive oil and black pepper. Or it can be dressed up more elaborately as in my version here.

Charred Peaches

Charring fresh, sweet peaches adds another even sweeter element to them. Charring them is also a great solution if your peaches are not perfectly ripe as this cooks them slightly and softens them.

Crispy Prosciutto

Did you know that as good as prosciutto is on its own, it gets even better when you crisp it up in the oven? Yep, that’s right. I’ve used crispy prosciutto in my Pear and Crispy Prosciutto Salad and my Tomato Bruschetta. If you haven’t tried crispy prosciutto, you must. It’s like the Italian version of crispy bacon!

Burrata with Charred Peaches and Crispy Prosciutto Garnishes and Options

Simple (and really good) olive oil is a must for this dish. I added cilantro micro greens and nutty toasted pine nuts. Chopped fresh basil is also a delicious option.

Now, if you want to serve this like a Burrata Caprese, you could add sliced summer tomatoes (colorful ones would be stunning, like maybe Heirlooms?). Now, did you know that in Italy they don’t add balsamic vinegar to Caprese salads? This is true, but if you want to add it to your dish, I wont tell anyone.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2 ripe peaches
  • 2 slices prosciutto
  • 1 ball of burrata
  • Micro greens
  • Small handful of pine nuts
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Ground black pepper


  1. To char the pepper:
    Preheat the oven broiler/grill with the rack high and close to the top. Place in onto a sheet pan and broil/grill until the skin is charred, turning as needed. Once evenly charred, place in a bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap until cooled. Alternatively, place over an open flame turning often until the skin is charred. You can also char on the grill.
  2. For the peaches:
    Peel the peaches, slice and remove the seed. Place on a preheated grill (or grill pan) until lightly charred. Place in a bowl and cover until cooled.
  3. Heat the oven to 350°F/178°C. Place the slices of prosciutto onto a baking sheet/tray and bake until crispy, about 5 minutes.
  4. Once the pepper is cooled, use a paper towel to rub and remove the skin and seeds. Slice the pepper into strips.
  5. To a dry frying pan add the pine nuts over medium heat and toast, tossing often until lightly browned. Set aside.
  6. Place the burrata in the center of a plate. Place the peach slices and the pepper strips around the burrata and top with crispy prosciutto.
  7. Sprinkle the pine nuts and micro greens around the burrata. Drizzle with a good quality extra virgin olive oil)and a light sprinkling of ground black pepper to taste.
