Whenever I can find burrata—a mozzarella-type Italian cheese with a creamy center—I make these toasts. Thankfully, it’s now offered by a few domestic producers and is easier to locate than it used to be. In winter, substitute oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes for the heirlooms.


  • ¼ cup (2 fl oz/60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil, plus more as needed
  • 1


Preheat a grill to medium-high and oil the grill rack.

Brush the baguette slices on both sides with the ¼ cup olive oil. Place on the hot grill and grill the baguette slices until golden on the first side, about 3 minutes. Turn and grill on the second side until golden, 2–3 minutes longer. Tran
