Instructions

How to Prepare a Delicious Burrata Cheese Appetizer with Figs and Ham

  • Give the bread slice a round shape (try to use a pastry cutter or a large glass).
  • Place it in the center of the dish and turn the prosciutto around its circumference. The nest is ready.
  • Separately, cut the Burrata into small pieces and mix it with Mascarpone, a popular Italian cream cheese.
  • Place the cream inside the nest.
  • Pour a teaspoon of honey above it.
  • Cut the figs into quarters and place them around the nest. Complete pouring over the rest of the honey.
