Feta cheese and roasted tomatoes, I am not sure it gets any better.
The creamy salty feta cheese pairs amazingly with the sweet tart roasted tomatoes.
To be honest I could just eat that whole pan of roasted tomatoes with a fork! I love them.
This whipped feta, wow! It would be so great on a sandwich or even stirred into a pasta, so so good!
What you need,
8 oz. feta cheese
3 oz. cream cheese
2 tsp. olive oil
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Salt & Pepper to taste
3 cups cherry tomatoes or any tomato cut into bite sized pieces
1 tbsp. olive oil
Salt & Pepper
2 tbsp. fresh chopped basil for topping
1 small loaf crusty French style bread
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
In a food processor, combine the feta cheese, cream cheese, olive oil and lemon juice. Blend until light and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Season the cheese mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
Put the cheese mixture in a bowl and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
Heat your oven to 400 degrees. In a baking dish toss the tomatoes with olive oil and about 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of pepper.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until the tomatoes start to burst open.
Remove the tomatoes from the oven and let stand while you make the toasts.
Heat the broiler and move a rack to the upper position.
Cut the bread into 1½ inch slices, drizzle both sides with the extra virgin olive oil. Broil the toasts for a minute or two on each side until brown and crisp. Watch it close so it doesn’t burn.
To serve spread each toast with a good amount of the whipped feta, top with some lovely roasted tomatoes and a sprinkle of fresh basil.
Stuff in your face!
These wonderful toasts would be a great for any meal. They would be a perfect breakfast with a side of scrambled eggs. How about for brunch with a nice green salad and a mimosa! Even for dinner with a perfectly grilled steak!
I hope you like these toasts as much as I did. Man I could have eaten all of it!
