Greek Saganaki

Serves: 4

Serve this pan-fried feta cheese with slices of ripe, red tomatoes and lemon. My favorite feta cheese is at Whole Foods, and comes in a brick, in brine.

Total Time:


8 ounces brick (not crumbled) feta cheese
1 egg
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
2 large ripe tomatoes, sliced
1 lemon, cut into wedges


Slice feta into 2x3/8 inch squares, about 8 slices. In a small bowl, beat the egg with the oregano. Dip each slice of feta in egg, shake off excess, and coat in flour.

Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Quickly cook cheese in olive oil until golden, turning once. Pat dry with paper towels.

Arrange feta on a plate with thick tomato slices, season with black pepper, and garnish with lemon wedges.
