Piper’s Burrata Sandwich
This is the sandwich Piper eats at the prison during her self-surrender. While they’re waiting for the paperwork to be processed, Larry pulls it out and offers it to her. “It’s burrata,” he tells her.
To prepare, I cooked up a few slices of bacon, rinsed the arugula, sliced some tomato, and toasted the bread.
Then the sandwich is assembled as follows: toasted bread slice, burrata cheese, tomato, drizzle of bacon grease & balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, bacon, arugula, and toasted bread slice.
This is like a fancier BLT – and it’s delicious! Burrata cheese is a fresh and soft mozzarella cheese, but inside is combined with cream. So the flavor is very subtle. The bacon took over the flavor a bit, but the arugula, burrata and balsamic vinegar helped dial it back.
This is a pretty simple sandwich to make. The only effort here is cooking bacon and slicing tomatoes.
You will need bread, burrata cheese, bacon, tomato, balsamic vinegar, arugula (or microgreens), salt and pepper.
