Rosemary Whipped Feta with Grilled Peaches and Honey is an ideal treat for any get together. After all, who doesn’t love a fabulous cheese spread? This isn’t your average spread, but it’s easy to make and it is a crowd pleaser!
What are you doing this looooong holiday weekend? I’m willing to bet a grill and a cheesy spread or two will be involved, whatever your plans.
I’m headed up north, both to beat the heat, and to check out Tonto Natural Bridge State Park for a little hiking. The park is home to Tonto Natural Bridge — said to be the world’s largest natural travertine bridge. I’ll be sure to share a photo in my next post.
Whether you’re heading to a friend’s place this weekend, packing up a picnic for a day out, or just chilling at home, you should try this feta spread. The grilled peaches (yum!), crusty bread (toasted or not), fresh rosemary, and touch of honey make this an extraordinary appetizer that can’t be beat.
Speaking of peaches and rosemary, my Peach-Rosemary Agua Fresca is super refreshing and perfect for the summer. If you’d like, add a touch of bourbon to yours.
If pie is more your thing, Fresh Peach Pie “Pop Tarts” should be on your menu. These hand-held treats are amazing, and fun to serve, too.
I’ve seen whipped feta popping up all over the place online, but I’ve never had it. I thought this weekend would be the perfect time to give it a try. Oh, man! I instantly fell in love.
I added fresh rosemary to my whipped feta, and I’m already thinking of all the different ways to change things up. So many options! I love, love, love grilled peaches, and they are perfect piled up on the bread over the feta. I bet fresh tomatoes with a drizzle of oil and balsamic vinegar would be amazing, too.
The next time you’re looking for a delightful appetizer, try Rosemary Whipped Feta with Grilled Peaches and Honey. It’s different from the other cheese spreads, and so delicious!
