Whipped feta has been something on my list of things to try ever since seeing it over on Jessica’s blog. It just looked sooo fluffy. Considering how much I love feta cheese, and how easy this stuff is to make, I’m kicking myself for not making it sooner. It’s as easy as whipping some feta cheese and cream cheese together. I was feeling a wee bit adventurous and whipped in a little garlic and chopped basil.
Salty, savory, and a little tangy. You want this in your life, on your crackers, smeared on bread, crostini, and sandwiches.
We devoured most of it by spreading it onto thin crispy, herbed crackers, and made some super cheesy sandwiches with this smeared all over the bread (recipe coming next week!).
- 8 oz crumbled feta cheese, room temperature
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1/2 tsp minced garlic
- 1 1/2 tbsp chopped basil
- 2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Whip cream cheese and feta until smooth and creamy and there are no lumps. Slowly whip in minced garlic, basil, extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper. Whip on high for 2-3 minutes until fluffy.
