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 used my wonderful neighbor Cheryl’s recipe for roasted garlic and feta dip and changed it just a bit. The sliced tomatoes and fresh basil make this snack or appetizer so light and tasty. I used the feta dip on half of the crostinis and a goat cheese spread on the other half.

How to Make Tomato and Fresh Basil Crostini with Feta and Roasted Garlic Cheese Spread

Feta and Roasted Garlic Spread: 

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

Combine feta cheese, sour cream, 1/2 head of roasted garlic, salt, and pepper to taste and mix thoroughly.

Goat Cheese and Roasted Garlic Spread: 

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

Other Ingredients:

  • 1 baguette, sliced
  • 1 vine-ripened tomato, sliced thinly
  • 5-6 fresh basil leaves, chopped finely into ribbons
  • Fresh cracked pepper and sea salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and spray the tops with olive oil cooking spray. Bake 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 them into a tube, and cut them into thin slices (chiffonade).

Spread the feta or goat cheese mixture evenly onto the crostini then top with a slice of tomato, sprinkle with sea salt & fresh cracked pepper, then top with basil ribbons.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
