A Great Sidedish for Sharing with Friends…
I felt guilty about writing up this post and calling this honey baked feta a recipe post because it’s so simple to do. However, after serving this to the ladies last week at a dinner party I was hosting, I felt the need to document it. This was one thing served on my Greek mezze platter that they wolfed down and couldn’t get enough of. I knew I should have baked two of them.
This dish is ideal as a snack or a side dish at a dinner party. It’s great for dipping fresh bread into, enjoying as a sharing dish with friends and family. The sweetness and saltiness combined is a delicious combo for the mouth. As you would have seen on my Instagram Stories, everyone was mopping it up.
This honey baked feta is something I would highly recommend whipping up for when you’re entertaining. It’s so easy to make and it’s a crowd-pleaser. If you want something else to serve with it other than bread, I’d recommend some veggie sticks, carrots would go down well with this. Along with bread, we had some pita chips that worked perfectly with this.
Honey, Lavender & Thyme Baked Feta
- 200 g feta
- 4 tbsp honey
- 2 sprigs lavender
- salt & pepper
- Prior to baking, take the feta out of the fridge and cover it with a piece of kitchen roll. Leave at room temperature for an hour to soak up the moisture.
- Once ready to cook, take the kitchen roll off and place it in an oven-proof dish that's large enough to fit the cheese snuggly. Preheat the grill. Drizzle the honey and add the thyme and honey on top. Season with salt & pepper.
- Place under the grill and cook for 7-10 minutes, until cooked and golden. Serve immediately with warm bread and a good glass of wine.
