How to Make the Easiest Summer Appetizer with Wisconsin Burrata

Wisconsin Burrata

Want to know the secret to throwing an impromptu get together and making it look effortless? Always have three things on hand: Wisconsin cheese, bread and wine.

Whatever the season, you’ll have something tasty on the table in minutes. For summer, it’s all about creamy Wisconsin burrata cheese and crisp rosé wine. We used burrata from BelGioioso Cheese in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Here’s how to put it all together and be relaxing on the patio in no time:

1. Wisconsin Burrata
Made by stuffing fresh mozzarella with a mixture of torn mozzarella and cream known as straciatella, burrata is a luscious treat with a clean, milky flavor. Try it with a drizzle of olive oil, a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of chile flakes and salt.

2. Fresh Baguette
Lightly toast slices on the grill or stovetop for spreading on your creamy burrata. For a truly no-fuss affair, simply bring the baguette to the table and rip into it by hand.

3. Rosé Wine
To round out this relaxing summer spread, open a chilled bottle of your favorite rosé. Raise a glass to easy entertaining!
