This dish is a creamy burrata, smoky sweet nectarine, and a zingy fresh lemon dressing to complement those smokey sweet flavours. This is summer on a platter.

    To install the grill plate, position it flat on top of the heating element and gently press down until it sits into place, then close the lid.

    Turn dial to GRILL. Set temperature to HI and set time to 8 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating (preheating will take approx. 6 minutes). 

  • Step 3

    While unit is preheating, drizzle nectarines with ½ tablespoon olive oil. Lightly drizzle remaining olive oil onto the flatbreads and sprinkle the oregano on top. 

  • Step 4

    When unit beeps to signify it has preheated and “ADD FOOD” is displayed, open lid and place the nectarines and lemon halves onto the grill then close lid. 

  • Step 5

    When 3 minutes remain, open lid and remove nectarines and lemons. Add flatbreads to grill plate then close lid and cook for 3 minutes or until crispy.
