FETA-RADISH SPREAD WITH PITA CRISPS [RECIPE]

Check out this yummy FETA-RADISH spread I found on MarthaStewart.com.
Perfect summer time snack!
 
INGREDIENTS:
5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 pocket pitas, split open
1 package sheep's-milk feta cheese (8 ounces), coarsely chopped
1/4 cup plain whole-milk yogurt, preferably Greek
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 
4 radishes, quartered and thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)

 

 

DIRECTIONS: 

 STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using 2 tablespoons oil, brush insides of pita rounds. Cut each round into 6 wedges. Arrange wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet, oiled sides up; toast until golden brown and crisp, 7 to 10 minutes.

STEP 2: Meanwhile, pulse feta, yogurt, lemon juice, and remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a food processor just until mixture is thick and spreadable, about 10 pulses. Transfer to a medium bowl, and stir in parsley and radishes. Serve with pita crisps.

FETA-STUFFED BLT BURGER - RECIPE

OMG! YES PLEASE! I found this recipe for a Feta-stuffed BLT burger on MarthaStewart.com. It sounds amazing! I can't wait to serve it up this weekend!

INGREDIENTS:
8 slices bacon
1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
4 ounces feta, crumbled (1 cup)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted
4 leaves Bibb or Boston lettuce
1 large tomato, sliced crosswise
 

DIRECTIONS:

STEP 1: In a large nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium-high until fat is rendered and bacon is browned, about 5 minutes, flipping halfway through. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Form beef into 8 thin 5-inch patties. Top 4 patties with 1/4 cup cheese each, leaving a 1/4-inch border, then top with remaining patties. Pinch edges to seal; season burgers with salt and pepper.

STEP 2: Pour off fat from skillet, wipe clean, and heat over medium. Add 2 burgers and cook until dark brown and firm to the touch, about 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. Repeat with remaining burgers. Serve burgers on buns with bacon, lettuce, and tomato.
