Got Cheese?

Through a series of unfortunate (well, not for me) events, I have been bestowed with the following bounty:

1 kg of feta cheese

…and 500 g (or approximately 47 balls) of bocconcini cheese!

Ummm…that’s a lot of cheese! I mean, just check out the brick of feta.

Yikes!

So here’s where I need your assistance, dear readers. I need suggestions on what to do with my plethora of cheese. Share your favourite recipes using feta or bocconcini so I can use up my cheese before it goes bad – if there is one thing I hate is throwing away perfectly good food.

    I just recently saw this recipe for a pimped out feta cheese dip that I REALLY want to try someday: http://www.howsweeteats.com/2011/06/crazy-feta/
    Also – greek salad. It’s a must whenever we have feta on hand.
    And bean salad with feta is awesome.
    AND my bookmarks found this basic recipe for turkey feta burgers. Feta in my burger? I wouldn’t say no: http://onalobsterplacemat.blogspot.com/2008/09/feta-turkey-burgers-and-kale.html

    With the bocconcini I’d probably make a caprese salad with tomatoes and basil for starters. I’d also slice some up on pizza. And throw some of that feta on it too.

    Worst case scenario? I’ll take that cheese off your hands 🙂

    I love to sprinkle feta on a spinach salad topped with watermelon.

    You could make fun little caprese bites by skewering grape tomatoes and the bocconcini with basil leaves onto toothpicks. Another idea would be to make falafel and eat them with feta! And I haven’t made the crazy feta dip Kristie recommended but I saw it on Jessica’s blog and would definitely suggest that as well. You could bring it to any gathering w/ some pita chips and it would be gone before you know it!
