Feta Cheese and Roasted Garlic Appetizer
My husband and I have been making this since his college days, when we lived in a tiny 1 bedroom apartment, yet still managed to entertain frequently. We had it at a restaurant, loved it, and my husband (who is a super taster) figured out how they made it. We have been enjoying their recipe ever since. It is super easy and so delicious!
1 skinny baguette (I used a rustic baguette)
4 oz of good quality Feta Cheese
1/2 cup Sour Cream (I used fat free)
2 heads of garlic which you will roast (see below)
Cut the top 1/3 to 1/4 of your garlic head off, drizzle with a bit of olive oil and salt, wrap in aluminum foil and roast at 350 for about 45 minutes, let cool.
*In the meantime, mix your feta and sour cream together, I use a fork, until creamy. This is to taste if you like it milder add more sour cream.
*Cut your baguette into about 3/4 to 1 inch slices and put them on a sheet pan and toast them in the oven until golden brown (I use the broil function and watch them closely)
*If you squeeze your garlic head the perfectly smooth and creamy cloves will squish out the top and be easier to use*.
On each perfectly toasted piece of bread, spread some of the garlic, as much or as little as you want, top with the feta/sour cream mixture and enjoy
Recommendations: It goes perfectly with a nice bold red wine. Also, eat it with someone you love, as you will be excreting garlic thru your pores all the next day!
