I am proud to be partnering with San Luis Sourdough® breads to bring you this tasty recipe!
So I treat myself to meals like this fairly often. Hey, you gotta live a little! Toasted sourdough bread, creamy burrata, fresh tomato and basil, salty prosciutto and pistachios. But it is the Balsamic Vinegar Glaze that really takes this over the top. Once you learn How To Make Balsamic Glaze you will be wondering what took you so long.
This recipe is about assembling really fantastic quality ingredients to make the ultimate open-faced sandwich. Start with San Luis Sourdough® breads. San Luis Sourdough breads are hand formed, using a slow baking process to give it that authentic Sourdough taste and texture. It is great as a soft sliced sandwich bread or for a crisp toasted start to our amazing meal!
Plus, San Luis Sourdough breads have no preservatives and are locally baked right here in sunny California! Some varieties are also Non-GMO Project Verified.
Really though, it is all about the texture and flavor! San Luis Sourdough breads have what I consider the perfect thickness and feel. Not too soft and not too firm. Perfect for sandwich making.
Hey! I’ve said it before . . . I take my sandwiches very seriously.
For these open faced sandwiches I used the Garlic Sourdough Bread. Everything is better with garlic, right!?!?
Just toast your bread. Make this balsamic glaze. Layer on all the amazing toppings. Then Stuff Yo’ Face! <— That last step will come naturally.
Once you learn How To Make Balsamic Glaze you will want to put it on just about everything. And it can go on just about everything.
My favorite use is on sandwiches and salads. But, I’ve been known to drizzle it on strawberries. Or, cantaloupe wrapped in prosciutto and drizzled with balsamic glaze. Be still my heart ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
