What Is Truffle Burrata?

Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese known for its soft, mozzarella-like outer shell and a creamy, ricotta-like interior. Truffled burrata takes this cheese to the next level by infusing it with truffle, typically black truffle, which adds a rich, earthy, and slightly nutty flavor profile.

The result is a cheese that’s not only incredibly creamy but also boasts the distinct and highly sought-after taste of truffles, making it a gourmet delight. It’s a favorite in fine dining and among food enthusiasts looking to elevate their dishes with a touch of luxury and its why we’re using it for this truffle burrata recipe.

Ingredients

Truffle Burrata: Truffle burrata is a specialty cheese and may not be available at all grocery stores. Trader Joe’s often carries it, but you can also check with local cheese shops or specialty markets. If you can’t find truffle burrata, you can simply substitute regular burrata cheese and add truffle oil to replicate the truffle flavor and achieve similar results. Start with a teaspoon of truffle oil, then taste and adjust as needed to achieve the desired truffle-ness.

Garlic: Fresh garlic is best for this recipe. Mince it finely to ensure an even distribution of flavor. You can also use a garlic press for a finer texture. Adjust the quantity to your taste; if you’re a garlic enthusiast, you can add more.

Thyme: Fresh thyme is preferred as it imparts a vibrant, aromatic quality to the dish. If you can’t find fresh thyme, you can use dried thyme as a substitute. However, use it sparingly as dried herbs tend to be more potent than fresh.

Salt: The amount of salt you need may vary depending on the saltiness of your truffle burrata. Taste the mixture before adding salt and adjust according to your preference. Remember that you can always add more salt, but it’s challenging to correct if you’ve added too much, so go slowly.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Choose a high-quality extra virgin olive oil for the best flavor. The olive oil should complement the richness of the burrata and the truffle flavor. Consider using a mild and fruity variety to prevent it from overpowering the other ingredients.

Recipe Tips

Presentation: When serving as a burrata dip, garnish with additional fresh thyme leaves and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil for an elegant finish.

Room Temperature: Burrata is best served at room temperature so if you make this recipe ahead of time, be sure to take it out of the fridge at least 15 minutes before serving.

Use a Food Processor: A food processor or blender is your best friend for achieving a smooth and well-mixed consistency. It ensures all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Adjust Consistency: If the whipped burrata dip is too thick, you can thin it with a little extra olive oil, a tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.

Storage: If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will keep well for a couple of days, although the texture may become slightly firmer over time.
