Baked Feta Dip with Homemade Crostini

Pin Recipe

Inspired by the viral feta pasta recipe, this Baked Feta Dip with homemade crostini’s makes for the perfect appetizer. This is a fool proof recipe that comes together quickly using only a handful of ingredients – cherry tomatoes, feta, fresh basil, olive oil, hot honey, salt & pepper. I have included my recipe for homemade crostini’s, but you could make it even easier by grabbing store bought bread crisps.

Tips & Substitutions

  • To make this even easier, grab your favorite store-bought crostinis! I find the best store-bought crostinis are found in the bakery section of the grocery store.
  • I would not advise using crumbled feta for this dip - a block of feta cheese is best.
  • If you would like to switch up the cheese, a block of Boursin cheese would also work for this recipe!
  • Because this is a recipe with very few ingredients, I like to make sure I am using the highest quality ingredients that I can find - especially when it comes to the olive oil. Graza Sizzle Olive Oil is my preference for this recipe!
  • I like to add some heat by using hot honey, but feel free to use regular honey if you prefer.

For the crostinis:
