Remember Cracker Jacks? The best part was finding the prize inside the box. Well, that’s what buffalo burrata cheese is like for me!
If you’ve never tasted burrata mozzarella then you must! It’s just a decadent version of mozzarella, only fresh, creamy and oozing with goodness because of the cream it’s made with. You cut open a ball of this luv, and the boholiciousness is right there!According to Wikipedia, ‘Burrata is a typical product of Murgia in the south of Italy. It is produced from Italian buffalo’s and/or cow’s milk, rennet, and cream.
Sometimes you just have to indulge yourself~~and, this caprese open face sandwich does just that! ~peace & buratta luv~ ally xox
