Grilled Feta …Just Irresistible!

Grilled Feta …Just Irresistible!

Another feta recipe

Grilled feta? I had never heard about it, nor even knew it could be made and that it would be such an irresistible recipe.

First of all, I do not owe a feta industry 🙂 nor I have any earnings from feta sales.

The truth is that…I just like this cheese very much. It is perfct for the kind of recipes I prefer, those that are simple, easy and… tasty.

After feta in oil, you can’t miss it grilled. It’s…divine! It has that intense taste that, I assure you, will conquer your palate. The 7 ounces block will seem too small as you will feel like eating it all by yourself.

I saw this fantastic idea on a fantastic Italian blog I have just discovered La Cucina di Calycanthus, that copied it from the fantastic Martha Stewart.

I eat it also by itself, but it matches perfectly with bread for an aperitif or starter, but also served with green salad or grilled vegetables.

The recipe requires the oven grill. As mine isn’t working, I just turned the oven temperature to its highest (300°C/572°F).

  • This looks wonderful, would love to try it. For the Americans reading your post (please forgive my origin, I didn’t vote for the orange monster), when you say “oven grill” are you referring to what I think of as an “oven broiler”? Lovely pictures and blog by the way!
    Cheers from the crazy place 🙂

    • Hi Joan,
      I am so so sorry – your message fell in spam and I only read it now.
      Yes, it is oven broiler. Thank you so much for pointing it to me, I will correct the text now.
      Cheers 🙂
      (p.s.- where’s your crazy place? 😉 )
