Baked Feta

I again happened to have blocks of feta cheese. I wanted to do something different with it this time. and I came up with this. I wasn’t sure if Feta will stand the heat of the oven but it nicely did. I guess a few more minutes in the hot oven and I would have had feta sauce! Thankfully, it didn’t happen. The cheese was just a tad soft, perfect to spread on crackers or use as a dip on a crudite platter.
Here’s how I made it.
Baked Feta
8 oz. feta cheese block
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup chopped garlic
Salt and pepper as required
1 small roma tomato, diced
How To:
Heat oven to 425° F.
Heat oil in a sauce pan, saute garlic.
Place feta cube on aluminum foil.
Cover with garlic, tomato, salt and pepper
Wrap the foil around the cheese block.
Bake for about 5 minutes or until the package feels soft to touch.
Take it out of the oven, garnish with parsley if you wish.
Serve with crackers, or sliced French or Italian bread.
