Mediterranean Feta Toast

This recipe /meal/ snack has been something I’ve been making on the fly for years. Whenever I want something quick and tasty, especially in the summer when tomatoes are in season this is what I make.

Whole grain toast topped with this wonderful, whipped feta and plenty of tomatoes is so satisfying and delicious!

The whipped feta is mostly yogurt, in other words I use about double the amount of yogurt than feta resulting in a light a fluffy spread. It’s been inspired by the popular Greek Spicy Whipped Feta Cheese – Tirokafteri which is a delicious dip with some spiciness to it that is served in taverns all over Greece.

Mediterranean Feta Toast Ingredients

  • Feta: I’ve mentioned feta, Greece’s national cheese is a protected product in Europe, in other words real feta is considered feta only when it is made in Greece from sheep’s milk or a combination sheep’s and goat milk. Having said that if you are outside of Europe, you will find feta from other countries. If you are not able to find Greek feta, try at least to get this type of cheese that is made from sheep’s milk. Unfortunately, there are many brands out there that label their product feta and is made with cow’s milk, resulting in a different flavor and texture.

  • Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt basically refers to strained yogurt. I use low fat here. You want to make sure that the yogurt is truly strained and does not contain fillers or gelatin that make it artificially thick. I have a guide here: Choosing and eating Greek yogurt
  • Oregano: Dry oregano is a necessity here and it pairs perfectly the whipped feta.
  • Extra virgin olive oil. The olive oil is what makes this meal just a touch richer and satisfying.
  • Bread: I choose 100% whole grain bread. There is a bakery where I live that makes this bread and it only contains flour, yeast and salt. Nothing else. You can also use whole grain crispbread, it won’t be exactly a “toast”, but the concept is the same.
  • Fresh vegetables: The vegetable can vary depending on the season, but tomatoes are the perfect accompaniment to whipped feta. Other great ideas include peppers, cucumbers, onion, zucchini, any variety of greens.
  • Tasty additions: I like to add a few kalamata olives, capers and sundried tomatoes for added flavor. You can rinse these to remove some of the salt.

    I have made this several times now. The Feta/yogurt mix is heavenly! I tried it with a thin layer of mashed avocado on the bottom. It was good, but I have to treat the toast as a full meal because the avocado adds quite a few calories.

    I think the Mediterranean Feta Toast is my all time favorite recipe. So simple, so good.5 stars

    I, too, had every single ingredient on hand. This was a delicious change from my usual breakfast fare. The coarse, whole grain bread I use is too small to carry all the ingredients, so keep that in mind if you don’t want to eat two servings. I was very happy to eat two toasts.5 stars

    Funny: I just made your tirokafteri last night as an appetizer and wondered what to do with the leftovers. And since I have my Greek pantry in order, thanks to you, I had all the ingredients for this feta toast on hand. Absolutely delicious especially for breakfast. Hubby loved it too. I’m not having a hard time at all converting him over to Greek healthy eating with your delicious recipes Love, love your cookbook. Thank you!
