    Earlier this month I partnered with Milk Means More to host a few of my gal pals for a little holiday party to kick off the season!

    I kept the bar simple with just prosecco, pinot noir and a large jug of my Chai Infused White Russians.

    As busy moms of as many as four little ones, it’s not every day that we take the time out to get together and soak in the season so this was a real treat!

    To save even more time on the day of the part, you can slice the bread the night before. Since it gets toasted in the oven, it’s perfectly ok to use day old bread.

    Add in a platter of hummus, a simple meat and cheese platter and a hot baked dip and you’re in business!

    Ingredients
     

    • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil (divided)
    • 1 bulb garlic (about 12 cloves)
    • 1 teaspoon salt (divided)
    • 1 teaspoon pepper (divided)
    • 32 slices baguette
    • 8 ounces feta cheese
    • ½ cup whole milk
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • ½ cup pomegranate seeds
    • ¼ cup parsley (minced)

    Instructions
     

    • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Slice garlic bulb in half exposing the garlic heads and place in the center of a large piece of tin foil. Drizzle each half with half of the olive oil (2 tablespoons), salt (1/2 teaspoon) and pepper (1/2 teaspoon). Wrap foil tightly around garlic and roast until caramelized, about 30 minutes.
    • While garlic is roasting, place the baguette slices on a large baking sheet and drizzle with remaining olive oil. Bake until golden brown, in the second rack of the 400 degree oven, for about 10 minutes; set aside.
    • While the baguette slices are toasting, place the feta cheese, milk, lemon juice, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a high speed food processor. Once the garlic is done roasting pop out the garlic cloves and add to the food processor. Pulse until whipped and creamy – adding more milk as needed to reach desired consistency. Check for seasoning and adjust to taste.
    • To serve, spread each crostini with whipped feta and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and minced parsley.

    1. I’ve made this twice now & it’s been a hit every time! It’s so easy but sooo yummy!! Definitely a go-to appetizer for me!

    2. Love this idea, Liz. I”m always looking for new twists on easy appetizers. The added benefit of this one is that sheep’s milk feta works for my lactose-intolerant friends so being able to serve a cheese appetizer that everyone can eat is a win-win for all!

      1. Also, I assume the dip can be made ahead and that the flavors mellow. And I”d have to use a milk substitute …didn’t read carefully that there is regular milk as well. It would be a great dip for crudités and pita chips as well!
