Burrata Toast and Boston!

When we were planning our recent trip to NYC my husband and I realized we needed to visit Boston, it’s so close to NYC and neither of us had ever been. So after leaving the Big Apple we headed to Bean Town, and boy did we love this city!

Boston is rich in history, there is always something to do and see…not to mention, eat….like this Burrata Toast for instance. I am going to bestow all it’s virtues to you momentarily, but first…

Boston: Where We Stayed, What We Did, And Where We Ate

We stayed at The Revere Hotel in the heart of Boston, walking distance from Boston Commons, The Freedom Trail, Beacon Hill,  great shopping, and restaurants.

We only had five days to get it all done, so we spent two days touring the historical sites…

…. one day shopping on Newbury Street, eating fabulous food, touring the gorgeous neighborhood of Beacon Hill, and taking a Duck Boat Tour (trust me, so fun!) And then we hit up the most amazing Farmers Market I have ever seen! It went on for blocks and blocks.

We also took two-day trips, one  to Martha’s Vineyard and the other, to Concord. We had a fantastic lunch at the Historic Colonial Inn. I had the most perfect Salmon and Quinoa Salad and my husband had a great burger. I highly recommend it!

My other eating recommendations: If you love Italian food and great ambiance, make a reservation for Sportello ! We loved everything about this restaurant from the creative food choices to the communal seating. And in the five days we were in Boston we ate three of our meals at The Met Back Bay. Two of those meals were breakfasts, they were just so good we had to go back!  I ordered Burrata Toast, which came with a poached egg and a side of potatoes. Eating breakfast at The Met inspired me to create the following recipe, I know, most people think of baked beans when they think of Boston, I think ‘Burrata toast!’

Burrata Toast is The New Avocado Toast . . . 

Burrata Toast is similar to avocado toast, but instead of spreading creamy avocado on artisan bread and then adding toppings, we spread creamy Burrata cheese on artisan bread and add toppings…including avocado!

Burrata cheese is a combination of fresh mozzarella and cream. It’s simply dreamy. You can top the Burrata with freshly diced tomatoes, red or colorful heirlooms. You can leave it as is, or add avocado, then drizzle with sweet, rich, balsamic glaze! Add micro-greens or basil and voila! A beautiful, colorful breakfast, lunch, light dinner or appetizer!

Of course there is always the option of adding the perfectly poached egg, because why the heck not?

The Recipe: Boston Inspired Burrata Toast 

Tips and what you need: it’s all about the tomatoes so use the freshest and best (any variety, any color). Learn to poach the perfect egg here. Micro-greens are available in the produce sections of some grocery stores. Micro-greens are simply baby sprouts of kale, broccoli, etc… They are loaded with  nutrients. I also use fresh basil, which is delicious, so whatever is accessible and floats your boat! You will need a toaster, a good knife, balsamic glaze and sea salt. I buy the tub, it’s a real money saver and lasts forever!

  1. For years, I’ve attended herb conferences in the Boston area but have never spent any time in the city. I’ve always wanted to do so and your travel notes have inspired me to make a point to visit!!
    Any version of the ‘toasts’ above, look so scrumptious!
    On the hunt for Burrata cheese! Thanks.

  2. I have to try Burrata. Still haven’t yet but this post will definitely put that cheese on my shopping list next time. Glad you had a great time in Boston! I love that city too! Can’t wait to see your Martha’s Vineyard pics!

  3. Love Beacon Hill and the duck boat tour sounds fun. We love toast fixed like this so fresh and delicious. Will have to make this for myself just because.

  4. Boston is one of my favorite cities. I LOVE it! My sister in law lives there and I love visiting! There is a restaurant in Denver that has great burrata, I really want to go get some and make this toast!

  5. It looks tasty! I haven’t tried one though.. I’m going to add this in my to-do-and-to-eat list. Lol thanks for sharing!

  6. So beautiful plus you’re using my favorite cheese ever so I’m totally in! Glad you liked our city! It’s funny, everyone that comes to Boston does the Duck Boats, they’re iconic and yet I’ve never been on one! I have to make one small correction though, it’s “Newbury St” not Newberry. Sorry, had to mention it.
