Confession time: I am a big time snacker. And when I snack it’s usually something salty. I reach for chips, crackers, cheese, cured meats. You put any kind of salty snack in front of me and chances are I’ll eat it. Even if I just ate dinner.

I told you, I’m a snacker.

How to make the BEST whipped feta!

And now I’ve got this Whipped Feta in my snacking arsenal and I know that I’m going to have it on hand at all times.

How do you make whipped feta spread?

Contrary to the name, it’s not only feta. Feta itself is a pretty crumbly cheese so in order to get the creamy, luciousness that is whipped feta, it needs to be whipped with cream cheese first.

I use a food processor to blend the cheeses together until they are smooth.

Next, you can stop right there and eat it. It’s pretty good on it’s own. Spread it on crackers. Use a spoon. What have you. But I like to add a bit more flavor. For this whipped feta recipe, I add fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, fresh oregano and garlic.

The flavor is light and bright but still super creamy.

Like I said, you’re going to love it.

What do you serve with whipped feta?

Whipped feta will be right at home on any cheese board. It’s also great with crackers, veggies and of course, crusty bread. I am having visions of it used as a spread on a burger too. I’ll get back to you on that one!

You can make this spread a day or two in advance, just make sure that you take it out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving so it has a chance to come up to room temperature. It will be easier to spread that way.
