Nothing compares with the sweet flavor of vine ripened cherry tomatoes except vine ripened cherry tomatoes that are braised and served warm over creamy burrata.

Any reason is reason enough for me to celebrate. Suns out? Celebrate. Lawn is freshly mowed? BBQ for everyone! Fresh morels found at the Saturday Market? Homemade pizza party for 12! (This one just happened last week.) So when my new favorite cookware company announced they were celebrating 10 years of healthy cooking, naturally I jumped at the opportunity to...you guessed it...celebrate with them.

I've only recently discovered GreenPan, and for reasons that can be found right here have been having some major regret that I didn’t find them sooner. They’ve been saving me some serious hassle in the kitchen, and because that's where I spend most of my time that means they've been pretty much been life changing (really though!). So, in true Modern Proper fashion my “thank God I found you GreenPan and happy birthday btw” celebratory spread included one of this blog’s favorite ingredients...cheese. I firmly believe no party is complete without some good cheese of one kind or another. A good charcuterie board is my normal go to, but last week on a whim (aka late night pantry/fridge raid) I pulled together this warm burrata and braised tomato dish and the results were SO amazing I just had to share.

Using GreenPan’s 8” skillet I braised cherry tomatoes in olive oil, multiple cloves of garlic, flaky salt, and plenty of fresh basil. Once the tomato skins were bursting (and my kitchen smelled like heaven on earth) I set them under the broiler (in the same pan!) until they were just charred and then poured the entire mixture over a plate of creamy burrata. Holy cow. Good doesn't even begin to describe it. Serve this beautiful combo with some crusty bread and even a random Tuesday evening turns into a celebration. (Which is a total thing by the way, because Tuesdays are not Mondays, so you see? Reason to celebrate!)
