Quick Feta Cheeseball

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by smellyvegetarian

I found this on athenos.com and have lightened it up a bit AND cut the original recipe in half. I adore feta, I adore crackers...this is an easy win! I will say that if you use plain feta you might want to include some garlic powder, or perhaps some dried oregano. Maybe even add some olives/crushed red pepper/spinach? The possibilities are deliciously endless! Cook time does not include chill time.

I made this a few times, and each time it was just as good as the first time I made it! Since I love cheese, I can't say anything bad about it. I can only say it was easily enjoyed and it did not last through to the next day!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces feta, crumbled (I used garlic herb flavored)

  1. Beat cream cheese and feta at medium speed until well blended.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Refrigerate, covered, until chilled through.
  4. Form into a ball and roll in fresh parsley if desired.
  5. Serve with veggies, pita chips, or crackers.
