Greetings from the castle kitchen in the land of bacon! Let’s eat!
I have a swell appetizer recipe for you today but it could easily be a whole meal with a nice bottle of wine (Mom says so anyway – what would I know????!!!!!). We saw this recipe as we arrived on my blog this morning – good old AOL handed me a great idea and I’m running with it!
Creamy Feta and Bacon Bruschetta
- 6 ounces feta crumbled
- 2 ounces cream cheese
- 2 Tablespoons Olive oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic minced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6 slices bacon cooked and chopped
- 1/2 cup grape tomatoes halved
- 3 Tablespoons fresh basil julienned
- 1 baguette cut into 1/4 inch diagonal slices, toasted
In a food processor combine crumbled feta, cream cheese, olive oil, minced garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Pulse until smooth and creamy.
Spread creamy feta on top of each toasted baguette slice. Top with grape tomatoes, bacon, and basil.
Now doesn’t that sound wonderful on a HOT summer evening with a coolish breeze blowing and a COLD glass of white wine or maybe Prosecco????? Oh boy. What can I say – Mom and Dad can eat enough of these little bruschetta bundles of joy to make a complete meal out of them. Finish it off with a little sorbet or maybe vanilla ice cream with fresh fruit. Magic!
May the bacon fairy visit you soon and inspire you to try this recipe!!!!
