Ingredients

  • 8 oz. feta cheese room temperature
  • 8 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 1-2 tbsp black pepper or more to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil optional

Instructions

  • Place feta into your food processor and pulse for 10 seconds. With the motor still running, add the cream cheese in through the top a little at a time. Then, add 1 tbsp black pepper.
  • You may need to scrape down the sides a few times, and there may still be a few lumps from the feta -- that's ok! If the mixture still isn't blending, add 1 tbsp olive oil and that should do the trick.
  • Scoop mixture out and place it in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp black pepper (or more) and drizzle of olive oil (optional). Serve with crackers, pretzels, fruit and/or vegetables and enjoy!

Notes

*Calories are per serving and are an estimation 
*If you're using a pepper grinder (vs. loose ground pepper) you may want to stir the pepper in by hand rather than having to grind the pepper over the stop of your food processor.
