Burrata-Prosciutto Bruschetta with Pear Jam

For an appetizer that is playful on the palate, I layered toasted bread with slices of prosciutto di parma, medallions of burrata, and a dollop of Bartlett-Vanilla Bean Jam.

A few kitchen notes...

Prosciutto di Parma is a dry-cured ham from the Parma region that is served uncooked and thinly sliced. This style of meat is a prosciutto crudo which differs from prosciutto cotto, cooked ham.

Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is solid mozzarella while the inside is a mixture of mozzarella and cream. In Italian burrata means "buttered."
