Holy holidays! Always flying by, don’t you think? But you know what comes after the holidays? Award show season. For the one or two of you that may also share my excitement, well, are you excited, too?
I was pretty grateful to be home for the holidays. It was a white Christmas and a white everything else. I forget when it didn’t snow…
For Christmas, I made a super simple appetizer that you can make for any occasion. Or if you eat enough, it can be dinner 🙂
(Sorry for the weird format…it’s the phone)
Whipped Feta Crostini
1 fresh baguette, sliced 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick
6 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts, crushed
3 ounces whipped cream cheese
8 ounces feta
Broil or toast bread slices until golden.
While toasting, beat cream cheese and feta together just until smooth.
On the stove top, toast pine nuts until golden. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn!
Spread cheese on toast.
Top with two or three cherry tomato halves.
Sprinkle basil and pine nuts over all pieces of bread.
