Roasted Garlic and Feta Appetizer II
I have been making my regular Roasted Garlic with Feta Appetizer for years. For New Years Eve I decided I would make it, but I wanted to change it up a bit.
I have been on a Shallot kick lately, so I caramelized shallots and added fresh chives. The caramelized shallots lent a slightly sweet flavor the chives a slightly savory flavor, it was huge hit!
1 baguette, sliced thinly and lightly toasted
2-3 heads garlic
1 package Feta Cheese (I used low fat)
1 tub of sour cream (I used fat free)
1 bunch of chives, chopped
2 shallots, skins removed and sliced thinly
1 tsp olive oil
Cut off the top 1/4 to 1/3 of your garlic heads, drizzle on a bit of olive oil and kosher salt. Roast in a 350 oven for about an hour, remove and let cool slightly. If you squeeze the entire pod from the bottom, the garlic will pop right out.
After removing skin and slicing the shallots thinly, add a tsp olive oil to a non-stick pan and saute until caramelized and nicely browned
Mix the sour cream and Feta on a 1 to 1 ratio (or to your taste), add your chives and shallots, mix well.
Smear 1 garlic pod onto your baguette slice, and top with the Feta mixture
