Brûléed Pear Burrata Crostini

This brûléed pear burrata crostini is elegant and fancy, but it’s so easy to make! It’s sure to be a favorite appetizer at your holiday party this year.




Make the crostini:

  1. Brush both sides of baguette slices with oil and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Bake at 350 F until golden and toasted, about 15-20 minutes. Rotate pan once halfway to ensure even baking. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet.

Make the brûléed pears:

  1. Arrange the pears on a heat safe surface. Sprinkle with raw sugar. Use the brûlée torch to evenly heat the sugar until it is caramelized into a golden crust.

Assemble the crostini:

  1. Pinch off pieces of burrata and spread them on each crostini.
  2. Top with a bruleed pear and walnuts.


Baguettes can be prepared ahead of time, but wait until serving to brûlée the pears. If they sit too long they will get soggy. Really though, there’s no better way to impress your guests than with a little torch show!
