I made this recipe from a 2001 Better Homes & Gardens "Holiday Inspirations" book that I have. The magazine suggests substituting goat cheese for the Feta. I hope you enjoy.

How to Make Crostini with Olives and Feta Spread

Step-by-Step

  1. For Crostini, partially freeze bread. Cut forty 1/4 inch thick slices; arrange on baking sheets. Drain tomatoes, reserving oil. Lightly brush one side of each slice with some oil. Bake at 300 F for 6 minutes. Turn slices over and bake another 6 minutes or until golden brown.
  2. Finely chop tomatoes. Stir in olives and garlic. Set aside.
  3. Beat cream cheese in a small mixing bowl. Add feta and milk. Beat until smooth.
  4. At this point you can refrigerate cheese mixture and tomato/olive mixture up to 2 days. Bring to room temperature before spreading.
  5. Spread feta mixture on oiled side of crostini. Top with a small dollop of tomato/olive mixture. Garnish crostini with shredded basil.
