Baked Feta Dip with Tomatoes
This Baked Feta Dip with Tomatoes is the tastiest simple appetizer. Think warm and creamy feta, roasted tomatoes, and garlic, finished with a drizzle of honey and lots of fresh basil. Pair this baked feta with your favorite crackers, bread, or homemade crostini. So addicting, especially if you love cheese as much as I do.

Review all recipe notes and instructions before beginning.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Place the feta in the center of a baking dish. Arrange tomatoes and garlic around the feta. Sprinkle the dried herbs on top. Season with salt and pepper. Lastly, drizzle everything with the olive oil.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Broil on high for a couple of minutes or until the feta begins to become golden brown. Drizzle with honey and garnish with fresh basil.
Feta: I recommend using the blocks of feta that come in a brine for this recipe. It has the best flavor and texture. You should be able to find this near the crumbled feta.
Cherry Tomatoes: Use a variety of colors if possible.
Use fresh garlic. I highly recommend fresh garlic. Do not swap this for minced garlic or garlic powder.
Broil. If you want more color or a bit of a char, broil the feta to finish it. Keep a close eye on it so it does not burn.
Serve with bread, crackers, or crostini. I love serving this dip with rosemary sea salt crackers or slice baguette.
Build the perfect bite. Start with the bread or cracker. Spread the roasted garlic across it. Then add the feta, tomatoes, and basil.
