Baked Kasseri Cheese Spread

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by alligirl

Delicious sounding! How can you go wrong with cheese and olives?! Kasseri is a greek cheese made from either sheep's or goat's milk; it has a sharp, salty flavor and a cheddar-like texture. Taken from BH&Gardens Holiday Appetizers 1999 and posted for ZWT.

I was so excited to find Kasseri cheese in my small town grocery yesterday. Couldn't wait to make this. It was as good as I thought it would be. I used a Greek olive mix that I found in the deli section and so just started chopping away. I made a small ramekin for just me and spread this on some roasted garlic french bread. Did I say yummy?! Thanks for sharing alli. Made for ZWT9.
