Feta Bread Spread
If you love feta you will go bananas for this stuff!
- olive oil
- fresh lemon juice
- your favorite bread-toasted
There are many different kinds of feta. Feta can be made from the milk of cows, sheep, and goats. In addition to that, feta can range in texture, salt, and water content. You can use any type of feta but my favorite is semi-moist and firm with higher than average salt content.
Olive oil ranges from Extra Virgin to Cold Pressed. Extra Virgin has a mild, light flavor and smell. Cold pressed olive oil is my favorite. It is full bodied and aromatic. Of course, the world’s best olive oil is fresh-pressed from olives hand picked in the hills of Greece. Liquid gold! Any kind will work here.
There is no wrong way or right way to create this spread. No one in my family makes it the same. This is not something you can make ahead of time, it is always best fresh.
Crumble feta into a bowl. Drizzle olive oil a little at a time. You can always add more but you can never take it back! Mash feta and oil together until it is the consistency you prefer. I love mine a little chunky. Sprinkle on lemon juice.
Toast your bread.
Spread your bread spread on your toasted bread. Eat up!
