Baked Feta Bites Recipe – How to Make Baked Feta Bites

If you’re a fan of Cranberry Brie Bites, we’ve got news for you: There’s a new holiday app in town, and it’s inspired by another fan, Baked Feta Pasta. This cheese stick food features the flavors you know and love, all wrapped into bite-size cups of golden crescent dough.

Pro tips:

Roasted red peppers are perfect for this recipe, but sometimes they are cut into small pieces. If you can’t make 24 2-inch squares, just fill each crescent cup with an even layer of peppercorns, leaving a little extra dough uncovered around the edges.

– If you want a visual guide to slicing crescent dough, check out the video for Cranberry Brie Bites. It’s at the 17-second mark.

If you can’t find whole pieces of feta cheese, crumbled feta will work just fine. Add about 1 teaspoon for each crescent moon.

To give each bite a light dusting of lemon peel, we prefer to peel directly over the bites with a Microplane rather than grated in a bowl, which will clump together. Make sure you grate only the delicious yellow outer layer of the peel, not the bitter white pulp underneath.
