Burrata, the delightful cousin of mozzarella, is amazing—soft, creamy and bursting with natural flavor. Meaning “buttered” in Italian, the cheese is one of those ingredients that’s so simple and perfect. It works best with straightforward seasonings like a drizzle of oil, a pinch of salt or cracked pepper. It’s wonderful on a burrata board, in a burrata caprese salad, in burrata ravioli or on burrata toast.
So why would you cook burrata in an air fryer? This is an excellent question and one people have been asking since TikTok food creators have been cooking up air fryer burrata, with the #airfriedburrata hashtag having 1.6 million views. The viral take on this classic cheese has taken the internet by storm, and we can’t help but be mesmerized. Take a look below.
Quite simply, it’s burrata that’s been fried in an air fryer. If you don’t want to deal with the chore and potential messiness of a more traditional fried burrata, air frying it might be the answer for you.
