On a bed of peppery arugula, burrata with tomato-peach jam makes a perfect starter or light meal.

This is my take on one of the most delicious restaurant appetizers of the moment, burrata with tomato jam. It hits all the right taste notes: peppery arugula; tangy-sweet tomato peach jam; and creamy burrata, the fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream. The only cooking involves the tomato peach jam, but it’s quick to make and, as a bonus, you’ll be left with extra to use on Southwestern sliders, grilled chicken, or sandwiches throughout the week. While this dish makes a great starter, I often add more arugula to transform it into a main course salad for lunch or a light dinner. Because burrata as a meal…yes, please!

What you’ll need To Make Burrata with Tomato-Peach Jam

Burrata ingredients including peaches, olive oil, and tomatoes.

How To Make Burrata with Tomato-Peach Jam

To make the jam, place the tomatoes, peaches, and shallots on the prepared baking sheet. Add the salt and the olive oil and mix with a rubber spatula until evenly coated.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring once after 20 minutes to prevent burning and sticking around the edges, until the tomatoes and peaches are soft and starting to brown.

Transfer the roasted fruit and shallots to a small bowl (be sure to scrape up all the flavorful juices from the baking sheet).

Add the sugar and mash with a rubber spatula or spoon until jammy. Taste and adjust seasoning with more salt or sugar, if necessary. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

  • Jenn, your recipes never disappoint! This is absolutely delicious and will he added to our summer dinner rotation. I will also be purchasing pretty little jars so that I can gift the jam. Thank you so much!

  • Hi Jenn,
    The package of burrata that I bought contains four balls, each weighing two ounces. One ball looks like a lot of cheese for one person! Is it possible to cut them in half, or will I find out that one/person is the perfect portion?
    Thank you for your help!

    • Hi Ruthie, I think one per person is perfect, and it’s really hard to cut burrata neatly.

      • Thanks for your advice, Jenn. You were absolutely correct, one per person was the perfect portion! My spouse and I and our two friends thought it was delicious and a wonderfully unique salad! I used a tomato jam that I made with the last of our heirloom tomatoes and it tasted great. I can’t wait to try it again next summer with the peaches!

    • Hi Carol, the cheese can’t be frozen, but the jam definitely can be. 🙂

  • This is a s incredible!

  • Made this the other day exactly as written and was delicious. Served with burrata and will definitely use the jam/relish for other meals as well Perfect taste of summer.

  • A treat for the senses with peach season in full swing. I would even use it on toast with my morning coffee. After all, a tomato is a fruit? Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

  • What else would be good to serve this jam with?

    • Hi Ann, It’s also delicious to use on burgers, grilled meats or fish, or sandwiches. 🙂

  • Hi Jenn, I see in the pic you serve this with French bread. Anything else you would recommend? Think it would be ok with some type of cracker? … any recommendation would be appreciated. Thank you!

    • Hi April, I do think you could serve this with crackers; I’d just make sure they’re sturdy ones and would choose something relatively plain so as not to compete with the lovely flavors of the cheese and jam. 🙂

  • Made this last night as a light main course and riffed on it a little bit. I toasted slices of my own homemade Peasant Bread and spread the jam on top. Topped that with bacon and then arugula that I had tossed with a bit of olive oil and parmesan. Burrata on top of that and some fresh Basil over all. It was delicious! Thanks for another great recipe.

  • I love this recipe. It is one of my very favorite things in the whole world. Easy to make, lovely for a summer dinner thank you Jen!

  • I’ve made this appetizer several times and simply love it. I reduced the sugar to just 1 tablespoon.

  • I have been waiting since last year for fresh peaches so I could have the burrata salad once again. I let the burrata come to room temperature before assembling the salad. Absolutely an amazing flavour and texture combination.

  • I would love to make this now but peaches are not in season. Would frozen peaches work? Thanks Jenn!

    • Sure, Kristen – just make sure they are well drained.

  • Burratta is my husband’s favorite and we usually do with pesto and tomato and were excited to see the peach ‘twist’ here. delicious!

  • Absolutely delicious! A huge hit at a recent dinner party. I will reduce sugar slightly next time.

  • Thanks for another delicious recipe, Jenn!
    We summer in a remote area of the Adirondacks so substitutions are often necessary. We used mozzarella instead of burrata, and plums for peaches, honey for sugar……it was fabulous. Plenty of jam left over for another day.

    • Love the idea to use plums, Jane – I’ll have to try that!

      • I live in the U.K. and plums are in season will try tomorrow night for my dinner party. If I switch honey for sugar – is it 1 to 1?

        • Yep – please lmk how it turns out with the plums.

          • It was yummy !!!

  • This was delicious. The only change I made was to cut the sugar to 1 TBS at the end of making the jam. What a perfect summer appetizer! I’m using the jam tomorrow on grilled turkey burgers. Thanks Jen for another winner!!!

  • Looks incredible! Bake at 400?

    • Hi Christine, You can find the jam recipe here.

  • what is a substitute for fresh burrata?
    Cant find it in our stores.
    I will be making it next week .
    I love your recipes.
