Garlic Feta Toasts With a Warm Olive Spread

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by SarasotaCook

I don't know about you, but I'm a bit of a soup and salad person, and once a week I have just a salad or soup/salad, soup/sammy for dinner rather than a heavy dinner. I make this quite often and serve it with a bowl of my potato soup or my chick pea soup, but you can use whatever you like best. Slice a few good fresh tomatoes or some fresh fruit if you prefer, and you have a great easy dinner. Two (2) nights a week, I really try to eat a bit lighter - and this fits the bill. But, it also makes an amazing appetizer, or a great side dish for any meal during the week. Simply put, it is just really good. Now whatever you do ... don't get rid of that cheese - Save! It makes a great spread on baguettes or makes an amazing spread for a sandwich. It will last a couple of weeks in the refrigerator covered. and, make all this ahead of time and just heat up, toast and serve.

Yum! Easy and very good. I served this with a veg and a salad with a bit of tuna. It looks like a lot of ingredients but it comes together quickly and if you just cut up a bunch of parsley and scallions at the same time most everything is done. And I made it even easier on myself by using the food processor. My feta was on the hard side so this option seemed to make sense. I can definitely see doing this as an impressive app for a party. It also might be really good to stir the cheese sauce into freshly cooked pasta and then top with the warm olive stuff. Thanks!

Directions

  1. Cheese -- In a small bowl, mix the feta, olive oil, parsley, scallions, basil, garlic and pepper. Use a fork to mix well and then refrigerate.
  2. Olive Spread -- One again, just mix all the ingredients together.
  3. Baguettes -- Brush the bread or drizzle with olive oil on both sides and toast under the broiler on the second shelf. Just a minute for the first side until golden brown. Remove and turn over the toast. Toast the other side until golden brown.
  4. Olives -- Just microwave your olives. They only take 30 seconds to a minute on medium heat to get warm. If they are a bit dry, just add a little more olive oil, but you don't want too much olive oil since it is a topping for the cheese.
  5. Top -- Spread each piece of the baguette with the cheese and top with the warm olive spread.
  6. Serve -- Just EAT and ENJOY!
