feta with herbs and crisps

super bowl is two weeks away, and the need to have a variety of appetizers ready for guests is upon us.  earlier in the blog history, i posted about this feta appetizer under herbal feta appetizer.

however, this offering can be made in a variety of ways to change up the taste sensation.  in the herbal feta appetizer post, i used a whole cube of feta, and sliced the feta into smaller cubes, seasoned the feta, and served.

for this appetizer, i used crumbed feta with a different selection of herbs to taste.  a very small amount of olive oil or grapeseed oil is needed to mix with the feta for the presentation.  herbs to consider for the feta appetizer include:  basil, parsley, dill, chervil, chives, tarragon, minced green and red pepper, salt and pepper blends. i use dried herbs for this recipe.

don’t be afraid to experiment.  this is an easy recipe that really can’t go wrong.  match your taste of favorite herbs to the recipe and enjoy with pita crisps or tortilla crisps as shown in this photo. 

to make the tortilla crisps, simply wedge slice tortilla shells (i use low fat tortillas), and place on a sheet pan with spray olive oil to lightly cover.  season with garlic and herb seasoning, or your favorite spices.  perhaps, parsley flakes only for the first attempt.  next, bake at 325 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, checking during the baking time for browning.

these tortilla crisps are much less fat and calories, since they don’t have any salt and are not fried.  they are crispy even with just a light spray of olive oil.
