Costco BelGioioso Burrata beloved Italian cheese is a special treat and it’s a great deal at Costco! BelGioioso Burrata fresh mozzarella is the cadillac of all mozzarella – if you know you know! If you haven’t had it, you are missing out! It’s an ultra soft, ultra delicate, soft mozzarella soaked in cream. It’s made out of a “pouch” of stretched mozzarella cheese filled with cream-soaked stracciatella. The result is a pearly white ball that oozes with cream when you cut into it.
Our favorite preparation is with fresh peaches and basil. But there isn’t a preparation of burrata yet that I don’t love…pretty much anything with basil and olive oil and baguette…and cabernet…ok now I’m hungry!
Needless to say, I buy burrata regularly, but I highly recommend treating yourself some time. It regularly makes it way into my cart and my kitchen! It makes a great appetizer for guests or Saturday night at home with a glass of wine. Not too fancy for casual dining, but certainly will make your foodie friends happy.
Pro Tip: Burrata should be served room temperature.
