Tomato and Fresh Basil Crostini with Feta and Roasted Garlic Cheese Spread

Tomato and Fresh Basil Crostini with Feta and Roasted Garlic Cheese Spread
This is a delightful appetizer that is easy to make and tastes so delicious. I use my wonderful neighbor Cheryl’s recipe for Roasted Garlic and Feta Dip (click here for link) and change it just a bit. The sliced tomatoes and fresh basil make this so light and tasty. I use the feta dip on half of the crostinis and a goat cheese spread on the other half.

  • 1/2 cup of feta cheese (I used low fat)
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream (I used non fat)
  • 1/2 head of roasted garlic, chopped (click here for recipe)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 vine ripened tomato, sliced thinly
  • 5-6 fresh basil leaves, chopped finely into ribbons
  • Fresh cracked pepper and sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine feta cheese, sour cream, 1/2 head of roasted garlic, salt and pepper to taste and mix thoroughly. Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and spray tops with cooking spray. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside. Lay the basil leaves on top of each other and roll into a tube, cut into thin slices. Spread the feta mixture evenly onto the crostini then top with a slice of tomato, sprinkle with sea salt & fresh cracked pepper and top with basil ribbons. Eat & enjoy!

If you want to do the goat cheese spread too:

  • 1/2 cup of goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 head of roasted garlic, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
