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.

Difficulty: Easy

This is a pretty simple sandwich to make.  The only effort here is cooking bacon and slicing tomatoes.

Cost: Average

You will need bread, burrata cheese, bacon, tomato, balsamic vinegar, arugula (or microgreens), salt and pepper.
