Grilled Greek Crostini Topping Recipe

Grilled Greek Crostini Topping Recipe

“I got the idea for this quick and easy appetizer while on a vacation in Greece. It’s nice for summer get-togethers.” —Stephanie Proebsting, Barrington, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 large vine-ripe tomatoes, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 package (8 ounces) feta cheese, halved lengthwise
  • 3 teaspoons minced fresh oregano
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • Ground pepper
  • Sliced French bread baguette, toasted

Directions

  • 1. Arrange a third of the tomato slices in a single layer on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Place half of the cheese over tomatoes; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon oregano and drizzle with 1 teaspoon oil. Sprinkle with a dash of pepper. Repeat layers.
  • 2. Top with remaining tomato slices. Drizzle with remaining oil and sprinkle with remaining oregano and a dash of pepper. Fold foil around mixture and seal tightly.
  • 3. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until heated through. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Transfer to a serving platter; serve with toasted baguette. Yield: 8 servings.
