These cranberry whipped feta crostini are a perfect holiday appetizer! At first I was thinking Thanksgiving when I thought of these, considering of the cranberries. Then while I was setting it up to photograph, I widow some rosemary garnish, since there’s rosemary in the cranberry sauce, and I realized how nice they looked for Christmas too!

We obviously have a thing for crostini. We’ve shared so many recipes for them over the years. And these cranberry whipped feta crostini are so good! The sweet and slightly tart cranberry sauce pairs perfectly with the creamy, tangy whipped feta! (I moreover have a thing for whipped feta). It’s unconfined for holidays considering you can make both the cranberry sauce and whipped feta superiority of time. Then it’s just a quick hoke for putting these together!

Like the cranberry brie tartlets we shared years ago, if you’re going to be making cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving, this titbit is perfect considering you’re making cranberry sauce for it, so you can just double up (or more) to make your side dish as well as an appetizer. Or if you have leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving dinner, this is a unconfined way to use it up!
