Grilled peaches make a ridiculously delicious and unexpected pairing for creamy burrata cheese. Grilling brings out the already notable natural sweetness in ripe peaches. Make sure to select peaches that are just ripe and fragrant but not overripe. You’ll also want to wash the peaches to remove any pesticides since you are leaving the skin on. Nectarines will also work just fine.

You can serve the peaches warm or at room temperature. Pair this combo with grilled crusty bread for a really fabulous welcome appetizer for your crowd. You’ll want to sop up every bit of the runny filling and the peach juices that mingle on the bottom of the serving platter.

What Is Burrata?

Burrata translates from Italian to “buttery” which is very apt. It’s a semisoft white Italian cheese originating in the Puglia region of Italy made from cow’s milk, rennet, and cream. Burrata is usually made from an outer layer of mozzarella, filled with a buttery mixture of cream and curds that runs out once the burrata is cut. Mozzarella is tangier and firmer than burrata. 

It’s available at cheese shops and well-stocked supermarkets. If you can’t find it, you can use another soft cheese or even fresh mozzarella instead, but ultimately, you are going to need to make this with burrata to get the full experience. It’s really not all that hard to find these days.

Burrata should ideally be eaten within 24 hours of being made and never refrigerated, though that’s not always possible. As long as you bring it to room temperature before serving, you should be able to have the full burrata experience.

  • Peaches – Make sure the peaches are ripe but not soft, and wash them before grilling.
  • Burrata – Try to find the freshest burrata available to you.
  • Balsamic Glaze – A generous drizzle of good balsamic vinegar or a balsamic glaze is optional, but boy, oh boy, once you try it, you’ll see why you want to keep a bottle of the good stuff on hand.

How to Make Grilled Peaches with Burrata

  1. Grill the peaches: Cut each peach in half and remove the pits. Grill over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes before flipping, then grilling another 3 minutes on the other side.
