Baked Feta with Shallots and Tomatoes

Baked Feta with Scallions 003

I’m always the first one to offer to bring something to a party. In my head, I go through all the recipes I’ve been meaning to try and decide that someone else’s party would be the prime time to try those out. Of course I then forget about it, don’t really plan anything out and have a small panic attack on the day of whatever party I’m attending and end up buying something at Trader Joe’s {not that there’s anything wrong with that!}

This recipe is the answer to your crap…I forgot to plan something for this party debacle. I got this recipe from my friend Meg who always used to bring it to our parties during medical school. IT was always one of the dishes that would get finished off, which is always a good sign during a potluck! I love this recipe because it’s so easy to make and is something a little different. Most baked cheese dishes involve brie, so a salty feta is a nice twist.

I usually bake this at home and then will reheat when I reach my destination. I haven’t tried to keep this in the fridge overnight, but I’m sure that would work out as well. I like serving this with a sliced baguette, but crackers, pita or even veggies would work great too! So now you have your answer for your 11th hour potluck dish. You’re Welcome!

Baked Feta with Shallots and Tomatoes
from my friend Meg

1 block of Feta–pick the size depending on the size of your baking dish and/or number of people you want to serve
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1-2 shallots, depending on their size , sliced
Handful of Basil, chopped into ribbons {chiffonade for you fancy folks}
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Line the bottom of your baking dish with the cherry tomatoes and shallots.

Place the block of feta on top of the shallots and tomatoes. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top, then drizzle olive oil over the feta, shallots and tomatoes. Finally, top off with your chopped basil.

I usually bake it for about 30 minutes or until it’s warm/baked enough for you.

Serve with bread, crackers or vegetables.
