1

1
tablespoon olive oil
8
oz. feta cheese, crumbled (2 cups)
1
(8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2
tablespoons finely chopped roasted red bell pepper (from a jar)
2
whole roasted red bell peppers (from a jar)

Directions

  1. 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Cut about 1/8-inch top off of garlic bulb and discard. Place garlic bulb on sheet of foil. Drizzle with oil; wrap in foil. Bake at 350°F. for 30 to 45 minutes or until garlic is soft. Cool 5 minutes. Unwrap; cool 30 minutes or until cool enough to handle.
  2. 2 With small spoon, scoop out soft garlic pulp into food processor bowl with metal blade. Discard skins. Add feta and cream cheese; process about 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Gently stir in chopped roasted pepper.
  3. 3 On sheet of plastic wrap, shape cheese mixture into 4-inch square, 1 1/2 inches thick. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. 4 To serve, unwrap cheese; place on serving plate. Smooth top and sides with small metal spatula. Cut eight 4-inch strips from whole roasted peppers. Wrap cheese square from center down sides with 4 strips of roasted pepper to resemble ribbon. Use 2 strips for loops of bow; use remaining 2 strips for ties that hang over edge of cheese package. Serve with assorted crackers or toasted baguette slices.
