Fun with Feta

Hey all you feta lovers - here are two new recipes featuring that hilarious feta cheese. Just look how funny feta can be.

Feta Bruschetta

One fresh baguette, sliced
Fresh feta cheese, about 1/3 c. crumbled
One jar of sundried tomato tapenade or sliced vine-ripened tomatoes
Parsley, oregano and fresh basil leaves
Olive oil and garlic salt

Brush each baguette slice with olive oil on both sides. Place on cookie sheet and run under the broiler until golden brown. This only takes a couple of minutes. Flip and do the same for the reverse side.

Spread each slice with the tapenade or two fresh tomato slices. Top with chopped parsley, a basil leaf and a sprinkle of oregano and garlic salt. Top with the crumbled feta. Broil until cheese is brown and serve.

*Becky Knows Everything: Broiling both sides of the baguette to start really keeps the bread from getting mushy. I use this technique on all my party breads. Also, if you are using fresh tomato slices, a thin coating of mayonnaise on the bread first is yummy. You can also substitute fresh mozzarella for the feta.

Feta, Artichokes, and Pepperoni (a threesome for sure)

½ c. feta cheese, crumbled
1 jar marinated artichokes, drained and chopped
10 slices pepperoni, chopped
2 fresh tomatoes, sliced
Butter, garlic and garlic salt
English muffins (this recipe makes about 4 english muffins, split or 8 pieces)

Spread softened butter on muffin halves. Sprinkle on garlic salt. Put under broiler for a few minutes until crisp and golden. Top with one/two slices tomato, chopped, drained artichoke pieces and pepperoni. Sprinkle on the feta cheese. Broil about 4 minutes until brown and warmed through. Cut each muffin half into quarters.

*Becky Knows Everything: The marinated artichokes add a bit more flavor but the regular canned ones work just as well. The only messy thing about this is the final cutting into quarters but I know you can do it!
