Crostini with Serrano Burrata and Hot Honey

Is it just me or hot honey has becoming a trend recently? I kept seeing it online and on the menus of many fancy restaurants. Luckily, it's so easy to put together and works really well as a dressing for finger food, like the crostini we're going to make here.

Crostini with Serrano burrata and hot honey


  • 1 medium baguette
  • 10 slices Serrano ham
  • 1 ball/2-4 oz burrata cheese
  • 1/2 tomato
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Some olive oil
  • Some chopped flat leaf parsley

Hot honey:

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon Thai sweet chili sauce
  • Some red chili flakes (optional)


Add all the ingredients under the "hot honey" section to a small saucepan. Use medium low heat to bring it to a simmer. Keep it warm for about three minutes then remove from heat for later use.

Hot honey with Thai sweet chili sauce

Usually you won't see Thai sweet chili sauce used in hot honey recipe, it's more like a variation of my own. Also some people will add a little bit vinegar in the end. Considering the crostini I'm going to put together, vinegar won't be necessary. 

Baguette slices

Slice the baguette and arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle some olive oil over then transfer to the oven. Turn to high heat and wait till the edges look slightly darkened and crunchy. Take it out before the slices over-hardened.

Toasted baguette slices

Peel and halve the garlic. If using whole tomato, cut in half because we're going to use the cut side to rub against the baguette slices.

Rub the cut side of garlic to one side of baguette slices, the side with olive oil drizzled on. Make sure to apply some force while doing so, after few slices you'll notice that the garlic really gets smaller and smaller.

Rub garlic on baguette slices

Once done with garlic, use cut side of the tomato to rub the baguette slices, like adding on top of garlic.

Drain the liquid from the burrata container. Finely chop the flat leaf parsley. 

To assemble, take one prepped baguette slice and top with small chunk of burrata cheese.

Adding burrata to baguette slices

Top the cheese with 1 slice of Serrano ham and drizzle some hot honey over. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately.

This recipe is not hard to make and pretty delicious, at least I enjoyed it a lot. It got that savory umami from the high quality ham and luscious cheese from the burrata. These two further bound together by sweet and spicy hot honey with added pop of herbal touch from parsley. I mean, as good as it sounds, no way it doesn't taste yummy right?
