Hello! Welcome to the 2nd Girls Night post!!!
I went on instagram to have you all vote which appetizer to make and the peach burrata crostini’s won! And they were fabulous. I got the recipe from food blogger How Sweet Eats. I love her recipes. I have made quite a few from her. And this was another winner.
It was super easy to make. I started with cutting my 3 peaches in half and drizzling with some avocado oil to put them on the grill.
I then made the garlic basil butter to put on the crostini’s before grilling them. The garlic basil butter really added something special special to the taste of this when you had a bite.
I then put the peaches on the grill and my crostini’s. I quickly learned my grill has hot spots. I think all grills do but some of my crostini’s cooked quicker than others and same with my peaches. But grilled fruit is a game changer. While those started grilling I put my pancetta in a pan to crisp up.
Pancetta is basically fancy bacon. It makes everything better. I was using the Pancetta as a garnish. The crostini’s and peaches do not take long on the grill so don’t walk away for too long.
You are going to slice your peaches once they cool down and then start building the crostini. Taking a crostini you put a little bit of burrata on it and then a grilled peach. At the end when I had them all on a plate I took the Pancetta and sprinkled it over the crostini’s. This was such a perfect combo of salty and sweet.
On this girls night I had my friend Kat over. We were actually celebrating a big milestone for me, which was my all clear from a brain tumor I had when I was 8. 20 years later I got my all clear and I was able to close this chapter. I sabered my first bottle which was a Brut Rosé Champagne from France. I picked it up from a local wine store here in Buffalo called Winkler & Samuels. They have such a great selection and this Champagne was fabulous. I have never had anything like it or that tasted so good. I would splurge on that bottle again. I would put in the video of me sabering the bottle but WordPress doesn’t have an option to add videos. So head over to my instagram to see it. @namastaygrapeful . Link to the recipe will be below! Thank you for stopping by and reading this! Cheers!!
