2 hours | Yield: 8 Servings

Impress your valentine with a delicious Basil Bruschetta appetizer. Topped with prosciutto roses, burrata, tomatoes and a pop of fresh Basil, they'll fall more in love with every bite.


  • 1 head of garlic
  • 1½ cups cherry tomatoes
  • 5 slices prosciutto
  • ⅔ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup kalamata olives
  • Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 loaf Italian bread, sliced
  • 16 ounces burrata
  • Soli Organic Basil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Peel the garlic, remove the cloves, and slice them to be bite size. Coat the garlic in 3 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, and pepper in a foil bowl on a baking sheet and roast until golden brown, about 15-25 minutes. Once golden, drain the oil and save for later.
  2. In a pan, cook the cherry tomatoes in 2 tablespoons of olive oil for 8 minutes. Sauté the tomatoes with the roasted garlic, olives, 2 tablespoons olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and a pinch of Italian seasoning on medium heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Create the prosciutto roses by cutting each slice of prosciutto into 4 smaller pieces, folding each piece in half, and rolling into the shape of a rose.
  4. Decrease the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Add 2 more tablespoons of olive oil to the reserved garlic oil and pour onto a plate. Dip each slice of bread into the garlic oil and toast in the oven for 15 minutes or until crispy.
  5. Assemble the bruschetta, topping each with a spoonful of burrata and the tomato olive mixture. Add a prosciutto rose and Soli Organic Basil. Enjoy!
