Skillet Chicken Fajitas with Creamy Jalapeño Verde Sauce.
These Garlic Herb Roasted Olives with Burrata cheese are the easiest appetizer you can make. Herby-salty roasted olives served with warm, creamy burrata cheese and sweet honey. This is the simplest of appetizers, yet so amazingly GOOD. Serve this dish at all of your upcoming spring and summer gatherings. It’s perfect with toasted ciabatta bread for serving.
It feels so weird to say this, but the new HBH Every Day cookbook is finally out! If you’ve preordered the book, it should be arriving today (or maybe it already has?). It’s also available for purchase where all books are sold!!
You guys know that creating this book has been a 2 year plus project. So the fact that this book is finally out seems crazy! I wasn’t sure we’d ever see this day! So excited for you all to get your copies, start cooking, and love every recipe! My nerves are soo high, but so is my excitement!
I wanted to celebrate with one of the simplest appetizers you can make…and currently my favorite. You don’t even need to think to make this recipe!
A while back I shared a recipe for whipped feta with olives, but this is even simpler. And depending on your taste, possibly even more delicious.
The olives are key. I used a mix of buttery green Italian olives and salty Greek kalamata olives. My two personal favorite varieties. Today we’re roasting them up with olive oil, garlic, shallots, and lemons. We’re then adding in some fresh thyme, oregano, and lots of chili flakes.
Then we’re throwing everything into the oven to roast, and basically, you’re done.
Now the burrata cheese. Burrata is mozzarella’s creamier sibling. It’s thickened cream wrapped up in mozzarella. Truly such delicious cheese.
You can find it at most grocery stores, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s. One thing to note…make sure the burrata is at room temperature when you serve it.
When the olives come out of the oven, break the balls of burrata in half, and nestle them into the hot oil. Let the cheese sit in the oil for 5 minutes to allow it to slowly melt, then top each ball of burrata with honey, peppers, and fresh herbs.
I like to serve this with crusty, toasted ciabatta bread for scooping everything up. It’s divine (using a new word today!). Especially while everything is still warm. So delicious, and the simplicity of it all just makes the dish better.
Excited to serve this for Easter, then also throughout the summer. I love that I really don’t need to think to make it. Just combine everything, roast, and enjoy!! We loveeee simple recipes like this.
And it’s great for celebrating today’s cookbook release too!

Hi, the instructions state to remove the olives before adding burrata to the hot oil, but doesn’t say when to return the olives?
You’re never removing the olives from the pan, you are just simply removing them from the oven:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx
Lol. I thought the same as Shari.
I was confused also when you said pull the olives out. Now I get it. You meant remove pan from the oven. Right? Can’t wait to make this. Love all the ingredients. 🙂
Correct:) I hope you love the recipe Cindy!
I interpreted the directions the same way you did. I thought it meant to take the olives out of the oil and place the burrata in the oil. Glad for the clarification.
Outstanding! For the bread I used Aldi Ciabatta rolls, which i freeze and keep on hand and bake 7-8 minutes on convection in the toaster oven.

This was a fantastic treat as an appetizer before a summer meal of smoked ribs, mac and cheese and arugula salad. I served it with foccacia bread and garlic loaf toast. The foccacia allowed us to soak up the juice. I used a mix of Italian and Greek olives. I removed the lemons before adding burrata. The roasted shallots were delicious too.
This was a really quick dish.
Thank you Tieghan for another winner!
Thanks for your kind message:) Thanks so much for trying this recipe, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! Have a great week! xTieghan
What do I do with the lemon?
The lemon is used in step 1:) Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan
