This whipped feta dip is so creamy, tasty and has a delicious hint of spice! Top it off with garlic pita chips and you’ve got a perfect party snack!

Whipped Feta Dip with Garlic Pita Chips

With World Cup being the most prominent event right now,  I’m sure you’re feeling pretty snack. I know I totally I am. While I’m usually up for any quick and yummy homemade snack, I’ve been craving feta cheese for a while, and had some ricotta in the fridge and we decided it was time to use it up. I had read about whipped feta and decided well, if feta is so delicious crumbled, it should be good whipped right?

Umm, AMAZING whipped.

Whipped Feta Dip with Garlic Pita Chips I’m talking Jessica-ate-everything-except-one-chip-poor-Mr.-Bakes (formerly known as Mr. Jessiker Bakes – thanks to JayCue for the new name!). I know sad, but I have no self control around feta and whipped feta made go insane. It’s soft, SO soft, creamy beyond belief and SO flavourful. At first, we had whipped it for about 2 minutes then decided to add in the olive oil, then instead of a few more seconds of whipping we went for another 2 minutes. Mr. Bakes gave me the are-you-crazy look but I said trust me, with a broken leg for the past 7 weeks I’ve had a LOT of free time to think on this. Needless to say, it worked out perfectly. All the flavours were blended together and an 20 minutes later after this shoot, everything tasted even better. So, wait, trust me, and the results will amaze you.

If you’re a cheese lover, you will love this recipe. Even if you aren’t, you’ll love this recipe. I loved the kick of spice it gave off with the addition of the red pepper flakes…which is obvious since as per above I ATE EVERYTHING. I gave up lunch and had this instead. P.S. the olive oil drizzling? YES. The pita chips are delicious by themselves, really, as evidenced by my little brother AND my dad snacking on the ones I might have burnt a bit because I wasn’t paying attention because I was focusing on the dip oops. Even tasty that way. But with the dip? Fabulous. With the dip and a little olive oil drizzled on top soaked slightly into it? YES, NOW, ALWAYS.

Sorry that I’m shouting. I have been waiting to share this dip. My new thing is garlic bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar like they serve at restaurants. Except, with the addition of my Mac playing endless YouTube videos all day. That would help with awkward restaurant dinner conversations.

P.S., not that I’m affiliated with them (yet hopefully!) but you should totally buy Athenos Feta Cheese. I literally buy this brand every time and it’s pretty amazing. Just a heads up, because sometimes you ask me what specific brand I use and I want your recipes to turn out amazing too!

Anyway, I’m off to watch another match. Currently enjoying just how exciting this World Cup is! Happy Monday!

Pita Chips

  1. Prehead the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the pita bread into triangles by first halving the bread, then in quarters, then in ?'s. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and line it with pita chips. Spray chips with oil spray, then sprinkle with the combination of garlic, pepper and salt. Turn chips over and sprinkle with remaining seasoning.
  2. Bake for 8 minutes. Make the feta dip while waiting on the chips. Remove and allow to cool.

Whipped Feta Dip

  2. Oh, yum! This is exactly the kind of snacky dip I love! I’m a big feta fan (well … a big fan of any kind of cheese, actually!), and it’s such a great idea to whip it for a lovely, smooth texture! Perfect for watching the World Cup, which really has been soooooo fun and exciting to watch (well, all except for the Americans giving up that last-minute tying goal last night … 😀 ). Now I have the perfect snack to munch while we watch!

  3. YUM! I love feta, I could eat it on anything, but I have never tried it whipped! I bet this would be perfect slathered on some fresh hot bread!

  4. You are a woman after my own heart! I totally would have devoured this entire bowl of awesome (with or without pita chips :). I love all the cheesy goodness in this!

  5. I tried whipped feta dip for the first time a few months ago, although I used Greek yoghurt in mine, and it was the best dip I have ever tasted. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since.

  11. Jessica, these photos are GORGEOUS! Every time I try to take photos of whipped food, it looks like I photographed something my dog hacked up. No joke. I must admit, I’m not a huge feta fan (cue your gasps of disbelief). But load it up with spices ‘n pile it on a garlic pita and I might be persuaded to devour this in one sitting. I hope your leg is getting better – 7 weeks sounds like an eternity! Thank goodness for the world cup and youtube.

  20. Joanne says:

    I’m already a feta addict, so I’m a little bit concerned about what would happen to me around whipped feta! I’d probably need a restraining order.

    • Jessica says:

  26. Julie says:

    I just whipped up a batch. VERY GOOD, but next time I will leave out the garlic salt, a little too salty for me. Might try it with roasted garlic. Mine is very thin. I hope it thickens up once it is chilled. Thanks for sharing Jessica.

  27. Ratherbebaking says:

    Update from previous post. The dip did thicken up and my husband said “you can make that again”.
