Peach Burrata Bacon Quesadilla

This peach burrata bacon quesadilla is served open faced and topped with crunchy pistachios and fresh basil.

Burrata may be my all time favorite cheese. I thought I knew love when I tasted fresh (still warm!) mozzarella right out of the big pail it was made in at Eataly in Turin, Italy a couple of summers ago but no, burrata beats that.

You think it’s like mozzarella from the outside but then the inside reveals this creamy, ricotta texture and you’re done for with the first bite.

Last summer, Julie  and I had this amazing speck, fried caper and burrata pizza overlooking the bay in San Francisco and after snatching up the last package of this cheese gold at the store the other day, I knew I wanted to make a lazy (wo)man’s version of that except, you know, minus the speck, arugula and capers and with peaches, bacon, pistachios and basil instead. So really, nothing at all like that pizza except for the burrata but, whatever.

My beloved peaches aren’t safe from any recipe for the next couple of months, even quesadillas.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices bacon
  • 2 peaches, thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces burrata
  • 2 large flour tortillas
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted pistachios, chopped

Directions

  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel to drain.

    Such a gorgeous, seasonal recipe! I've never made a quesadilla open-faced like this, but I really need to. It's like a delicious, easy pizza! Love the flavour combo happening here. Yay for peach season!

    I feel like Im missing out on something really spectacular, because I don't think I've tried burrata. Everyone raves about it.. I need to change that asap. Love the combo here..I'm all about the peaches right now too, they go on everything! Keep it coming!

    Made this tonite and although mine wasn't as beautiful as the photos in this post, it was DELICIOUS!!! Just a note. ..2 minutes in the broiler was too much. The edges actually burned black but that didn't matter. I just snapped the too-crispy edges off. Excellent flavor and an usual dish. Will get soggy quickly so eat 'em up quickly. That shouldn't be a problem!

    Had to substitute mozzarella for burrata, almonds for pistachios, and prosciutto for bacon to make it on the spot. Wasn't a fan with the substitutes.
