Feta is by far my favourite cheese in the entire world. I love it so much and I pretty much always have it in the fridge. There’s so many different things you can do with it and baking it in the oven is one of them. If you haven’t already tried it, please go and do it as soon as possible because it’s just so tasty.
The good thing with this ‘appetizer’ is that there is no specific recipe you need to follow. You can just add whatever you like and then bake it in the oven.
I like to add tomatoes. I pretty much always find a way of adding tomatoes in my food because it doesn’t feel quite complete otherwise. But unfortunately, I’m aware that a lot of people out there do not share this love with me *cough* you’re crazy *cough* – so you can add something else such as paprika or onions.
But if you are going to go ahead with tomatoes – make sure you have cherry tomatoes as any other tomatoes will only turn it to a watery mess.
The important step here is the balsamico. It was actually my sister that suggested that I should add it and it truly made a difference. Before, I only added olive oil and honey but the balsamico gives it a syrupy sweetness that gives the dish a fresh and exciting taste. Bon Shabétit!
1 packet of feta (200g)
8 cherry tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
Crema di balsamico
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
- Chop the tomatoes in half and place them in an oven-proof dish. Crush the fresh garlic and mix it on top of the tomatoes. Sprinkle the spices and olive oil on top and place the feta on top of the tomatoes. Add spiced again and drizzle some balsamico and honey on top.
- Bake for 17 minutes. Serve immediately with bread, salad or crackers.
