Baked Crazy Feta

by Erin

I finally made Jessica’s (How Sweet It Is) crazy feta dip. But I cut it in half, and baked it and put some Mozzarella cheese on top. It was amazing! Although I wish I had pita chips around, or even fresh pita bread to make my own chips, but alas I was without and had to settle for tortilla chips. But in all seriousness, it’s just a vehicle for this super awesome stuff.

Don’t judge me for standing over this, shoveling it into my face instead of paying more attention to the Oregon vs LSU game this past Saturday night. Guess after 12 hours of football viewing my stomach decided it needed to be first priority.


Makes approximately 1 cup


8 oz feta cheese

1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced

1Tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

Zest and juice of a quarter of a lemon

Salt and pepper

1/4 cup fresh Mozzarella, shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 16 oz casserole dish and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, crumble the feta. Add diced jalapeno, the lemon zest and juice and garlic. Add olive oil and mash with a fork. Taste the feta and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer to prepared baking dish. Top with Mozzarella and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
  4. Serve with pita or tortilla chips. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to a week.

I made this for the SRC this month. It was amazingly good. I had it once regular with tortilla chips and then had the remaining with pizza.

This needs to be followed with a side dish/main course with tomatoes! I just can’t pinpoint it..The feta make my mouth water..

I served it with buffalo chicken meatball subs (see post following this one). But a dish with tomatoes would’ve been great too!

Yes, this has been on my list for a while too. I love feta and can imagine how good this dip is!

This has been on my “To Make” list since I originally saw it on How Sweet It Is! But now with your encouragement I just bumped it to the top of the list! :-D

What a great dip for football weekends! Love the addition of moz cheese! Pita chips would have been good, but what can you do?!

I would totally not be able to pry this from my hubby’s hands. ;)

This looks incredible! The feta alone sounds fantastic, but adding more, melty cheese?! Fabulous.
