Yep, this was as delicious as it looks. I have a healthy obsession with anything that could be deemed bruschetta or crostini. I call this a delectable form of bruschetta. You have to try it…you really must. It is a quick and easy appetizer or side. But who am I kidding, I ate this for dinner. A few pieces and even swiped my finger across the plate to get up the leftovers!
For The Whipped Feta:
8 ounces good feta, crumbled and at room temperature
3 ounces whipped cream cheese, at room temperature
2/3 cup good olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
For The Roasted Tomatoes:
A container or two of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half o
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of sugar
For the whipped feta, place the feta and cream cheese in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse until the cheeses are mixed. Add the olive oil, the lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and process until smooth.
For the tomatoes, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (helps clean up faster). Place the halved tomatoes on the sheet. Sprinkle them with olive oil, kosher salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar. Roast in at 250 degrees for around a hour.
To assemble the bruschetta, spread each slice of bread with a generous amount of whipped feta. With a spoon, place the tomatoes on top (I include the juice). Sprinkle with basil and serve.
If you make this at home, send me a message and a pic! It is delicious!
