Simple Appetizer Alert: Greek Bread

Greek Bread

I was first introduced to this recipe over 10 years ago when a friend of mine started selling ‘Southern Living’ products.  She did a demo of this recipe during the home party and I’ve been making it ever since.  It’s very tasty and simple to make!  The original recipe calls for 2 teaspoons of ‘Greek Seasoning’ but as you’ll see below I have concocted my own version of this seasoning with herbs and spices I always have on hand.

Greek Bread modified from Southern Living

  • 1 loaf french bread
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 Tbs mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 4 oz feta cheese
  • Kalamata olives, to taste
  • Pepperoncini peppers, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine room temperature cream cheese and mayonnaise.  Add oregano, onion powder, and garlic salt.  Stir until completely combined.

Cut french bread in half the long ways and then cut each half into six to eight pieces.

Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over the inside of each piece of bread.

Top each piece with feta cheese.

Slice kalamata olives and pepperoncini peppers.  Top each piece with a handful of olives and peppers.  (If making for a mixed group, I often will do half without peppers for those who don’t like them).

Put bread on a cookie sheet or baking stone.  Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until bread is crusty and top is melted.

Bite into this savory treat!

    This really looks yummy and I have pinned it. Can you clarify what Pepperoncini Peppers are. Where do I find them in the grocery store? Thanks!

      Thanks for pinning, Thea! Pepperoncini peppers are similar to a banana pepper if that helps. They have a zip to them but aren’t overly spicy. I always get them in a jar found in the same section as jars of olives.

    Wow, what a great idea for an easy appetizer! And I happen to have a jar of banana peppers in the fridge that I need to use up, so this might be happening tonight… 🙂

    Anything with feta, olives and peppers is good. I will remember this for my catering this summer. Looks delish.
