Tasty Tuesday: Feta Saganaki
Here is a dish that is both flavorful and healthy. And it's not too hard to make. This dish is inspired by a dish you can get at some Greek restaurants, called Feta Saganaki. If you are a fan of feta and tomatoes, you will probably like this dish!
To make 3 servings, you will need:
1 8 oz package of block feta cheese (I like Athenos brand)
2-3 tomatoes, depending on the size and how much tomato you like
sliced onion, to taste
First you need to slice the feta into thirds, lengthways and slice the tomatoes and onions.
Then on a piece of aluminum foil, drizzle a bit of oil and sprinkle a dash of Greek spices, then lay a couple slices of tomato on it, followed by a piece of the feta, another drizzle of oil and spices, more tomato, onion slices and a final drizzling of oil and spices.
Then wrap the stack up in the foil and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the feta and tomato.
Bake at 425 degrees about 30 minutes. When it is removed from the oven it will be nice and spreadable. Serve it with pita chips or bread. My favorite way is to warm up some naan bread drizzled with a bit of olive oil and spice, heated in the oven about 10 minutes and cut in half. To me, half a piece of naan bread is just right with a serving of feta saganaki. Serve with a nice little side salad for a compete meal!
