  • Baked Feta Cheese by Bean

    I made this yesterday and it was very good. I thought it needed a little something, so I added a couple chopped tomatoes before baking. No salt needed, feta is salty enough.

    Baked Feta Cheese

    1 block feta cheese
    1/3 C. herb flavored olive oil
    1/2 t. crushed red pepper
    1/4 t. finely grated lemon zest
    3 cloves of garlic pressed/sieved
    1/4 t. seasoned salt, or regular salt
    1/4 t. freshly ground pepper
    3 - 5 T. fresh oregano leaves.

    Place all marinating ingredients in a medium size plastic zip lock bag. Tip the bag back and forth to mix the contents, then add the feta. Zip the bag, break the feta into large chunks while turning and marinating for 3-5 hours at room temperature.

    Preheat oven to 375F. Place feta and marinating ingredients into a pretty baking/serving dish. Bake for 10-15 minutes until feta becomes soft and tawny.

    Serve with crusty bread and your favorite wine.
