Fruity Bruschetta with whipped feta

These bruschetta were perfect Sunday brunch for me and my family. There was an extra whipped feta for the children to dip in... 


1 baguette , sliced
olive oil
100 - 150 gr feta cheese
3 -4 Tbsp thick yogurt
seasonal fruit, I had fresh figs and nectarines
Brazil nuts 
mint leaves

Toast the bread in a toaster, under a grill or in a grill pan.
Brush the toasted bread with extra virgin olive oil.
Crumble the feta, place it into a mug together with the yogurt, using a stick blender whip it until smooth.
Spread the whipped cheese on your toasted bread and arrange sliced fruit on the top.
Drizzle some honey and sprinkle some chopped nuts.
Mint leaves are obligatory :)

Ricotta, feta and watermelon bruschetta #2

I made this bruschetta for our Sunday brunch and I was so pleased to see the children happily munching them. My daughter made a comment about the combination as we don't really eat melon with cheese on regular days. However I grew up eating bread and fruit as a snack but then there was plenty of fruit growing in our garden and the cheese was saved for stuffing a peppers usually the shape of a cone, only to be served to the children as an ice cream....those were the days...

You will need:

french bread such as baggete  
ricotta cheese
watermelon cut into cubes
crumbled feta cheese
fresh basil and mint 

Slice the bread and spread with ricotta cheese.You can toasted if you wish.
Mix up the melon and the feta cheese and sprinkle some of the herbs.
Spoon it over the bread, sprinkle with some extra basil and mint.

note: balsamic vinegar goes really well drizzled over
