Grilled Bruschetta with Burrata and Blueberry Balsamic Sauce
It just so happens to be my birthday week! Yes I celebrate all week long, doesn’t everyone? My actual birthday isn’t until this weekend where I’ll be celebrating all things birthday cake as well as Independence. We like to celebrate the 4th of July with family, friends, fireworks and you guessed it … FOOD. While the grill is fired up we’ll be serving up these beautiful bites of grilled bruschetta,
They’re the perfect start to any entertaining you may be doing. Piled high with creamy dreamy burrata, salty prosciutto, fresh basil (thankfully our garden is in overdrive at the moment) and the kicker? They’re topped off with a finger licking organic Blueberry Balsamic Sauce from Robert Rothschild Farm. What more could you ask for in an appetizer? Well other than another slice please.
As I mentioned last month, I’ve partnered with the fine folks at Robert Rothschild Farm to create a few recipes using their Organic Blueberry Balsamic Sauce. If you haven’t tried this sauce (and you really really should) It’s pretty much blueberry bliss in a jar. Besides being decadently delicious, their sauces are USDA Certified Organic and use Non-GMO ingredients.
You can find the complete collection of Robert Rothschild organic sauces at Harris Teeter locations in the NC/SC region. Don’t live in my awesome state? No worries, if you’re not located in the Carolinas you can find their sauces on their WEBSITE. Problem solved.
Last month we shared our Sweet Corn Ice Cream with Blueberry Balsamic Sauce (which would be a sweet way to end your holiday entertaining, after all, you’ll already have the sauce on hand. Might as well put it to good use!)

That blueberry balsamic sauce sounds fantastic. Perfect on crostini!
I have only recently discovered burrata and MAN I love that stuff. Great combos here.

I admit to having to look up what burrata is. 😉 It sounds delicious, as does this!

That blueberry balsamic sauce sounds like the bomb. I love anything blueberry and that little bit of sweetness and tang from the balsamic must be amazing!

Happy Birthday, Paula! I love each of these ingredients on their own, so can only imagine how good this appetizer must taste. And that blueberry balsamic sauce – I must try.

Happy Birthday! I celebrate my birthday month. 🙂 Like I’m a 5 year old. This is a fantastic starter for the weekend cookouts I’ll be attending.
Brian @ A Thought For Food says
I just started doing the burrata/berry pairing. I’m not sure what took me so long because it’s wonderful!
Ok, you had me at burrata, but then you had to start with the blueberry balsamic, which I ADORE. Love this!
Nikki @ Nik Snacks says
I love Harris Teeter. It’s my grocery store of choice (please, don’t tell Lowes) and I love Rothchild’s Blueberry Balsamic. Now to find some burrata…
Isabelle @ Crumb says
Heck to the yes! I’m such a sucker for burrata crostini, and the blueberry balsamic sauce sounds like the perfect topper to bring it all together.
PS: Hope you’re having an awesome birthday week. In case you don’t know, there are no calories on your birthday, so just go ahead and eat all of the things. 😉
