Apricot, Burrata & Proscuitto Crostini

This post may contain affiliate links.

Crostini are one of my very favorite appetizers to put together.  Italian for “little toasts”, crostini is just a fancy name for crusty bread slices that have been brushed with oil and baked until golden brown.  These crunchy, hand-held appetizers can be topped with a myriad of different, delicious things, without much effort.  My apricot, burrata and prosciutto combo is pretty stellar, I have to say.  You get a tangy sweetness from the apricot jam, the buttery creaminess from the burrata, and the salty bite from the prosciutto, resulting in the perfect bite!

If you’ve never had burrata, you MUST find this ASAP!  Burrata means “buttered” in Italian.  At first glance, burrata resembles a ball of mozzarella. But once you cut the burrata open, it has an interior that spills out, revealing soft, stringy curd and fresh cream. If you’re a lover of mozzarella, ricotta, or really anything that’s straight-up creamy, this cheese is so what you want.  Imagine spreadable mozzarella cheese.
