Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups (310 mL) crumbled Canadian Feta
  • 8 oz (250 g) Canadian Cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) chopped green onions
  • 12 slices coarse textured bread 1/2-inch (12 mm) thick
  • 1 garlic clove halved
  • 6 large roasted red bell peppers minced
  • A dash of Balsamic vinegar
  • Fresh basil to taste or arugula leaves

Preparation

Combine Canadian Feta, Canadian Cream cheese and onions in a medium-sized bowl. Stir well to combine.

Place bread slices on preheated grill. Cook with lid open over medium heat for 3 or 4 minutes or until lightly toasted, turning once halfway through. Rub 1 side of each slice with cut surfaces of garlic.

Divide and spread Canadian Feta mixture over 6 slices of the toasted bread. Top each slice with 2 red bell pepper halves, a sprinkling of balsamic vinegar and a few leaves of fresh basil. Cover with remaining 6 slices of bread. Cut sandwiches in half to serve.

Tips

Variation:Replace roasted red bell peppers and balsamic vinegar with thinly sliced smoked salmon and top with thinly sliced red onion. Replace basil with fresh dill.

For a change of taste, use Canadian Feta with Olives and Oregano or Canadian Herb and Spice Cream cheese.
