Begin by cutting the tomatoes in half and remove the seeds. Place the tomato halves in a bowl and drizzle with a vegetable oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Let sit while you preheat your grill.
Preheat your grill to 375°F. Clean and oil the grates.
Once your grill is up to heat, grill the tomatoes starting cut side down, for 7-9 minutes or until nicely charred and softened. Flip and cook for 2-3 minutes more.
Bring a small skillet or sauté pan up to heat over medium heat. Add in 1-2 tbsp. oil along with the shallots and garlic. Sprinkle with salt and cook until softened, about 7-9 minutes.
Place the grilled tomatoes in a bowl along with the softened shallots and garlic. Let cool slightly.
While the tomatoes are cooling, grill your bread. Cut the bread into 1-inch thick slices and lightly brush both sides with vegetable oil. Grill the bread for 2-3 minutes per side or until nice grill marks appear. Remove from grill.
Using a potato masher, mash the tomato and shallot mixture together until it forms a chunky, jam like consistency. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt and pepper if needed.
To serve, place the burrata in a shallow dish and spoon the jam around it. Drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of flaky sea salt and serve with the grilled bread.
