Bouyourdi: Greek Cheesy Feta Dip

Are you looking for a very easy and delicious appetizer idea? This cheesy feta dip is known as Bouyourdi (pronounced: Boo-you-rdee) in Greek and is quick and easy to prepare.

Traditionally this dish is made with either just feta cheese along with the red peppers and tomatoes or with a combination of kasseri and feta cheese. Kasseri cheese is hard to get here in my part of town so, I went with shredded gouda cheese. The creamy feta with the deliciously cheesey gouda is a perfect match. Feel free to throw in some olives or even a few sundried tomatoes.

This dip is great for a formal Holiday dinner-party and easy enough for a laid-back treat for surprise visitors.
