I went to a party yesterday and the hostess with the mostest had this phenomenal spread out 😋I LOVE entertaining and will definitely be copying some of these apps!
My most favorite dish here was a baked feta, recipe as follows. (Derived from Michael Symon)
• 1 cup cherry tomatoes (halved)
• 1/2 cup Kalamata olives (pitted and chopped)
• 1 clove garlic (minced)
• 2-3 tablespoons finely-chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (divided)
• 1 teaspoon dried oregano
• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 pound block Greek feta
• 4 scallions (sliced)
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
In a bowl, mix the tomatoes, olives, garlic, 2 tablespoons parsley, oregano, olive oil and a few grinds of pepper.
Place the block of feta in the middle of an 8″x8″ baking dish. Pile the tomato mixture on top of the feta. Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese has softened and melted.
Remove from the oven and garnish with the remaining parsley and scallions and serve immediately while still warm. This can be placed back in the oven to melt if the cheese starts to firm up again.
