Baked Feta

Serves 4

ingredients


  • 1 8oz block of feta cheese
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 lemon, sliced
  • 2 tbsp of capers
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • red pepper flakes (optional)
  • about 1/2 cup of good olive oil
instructions


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small oven safe baking dish, place the block of feta cheese.
  3. Top the cheese with the lemon juice, lemon slices, capers, rosemary, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  4. Pour over the olive oil. Make sure the cheese gets coated, though it doesn't need to be completely submerged.
  5. Place the cheese into the oven and bake for about 20 - 25 minutes. (optional*, turn on the broiler for five minutes if you want a little golden brown char, but this isn't necessary)
  6. Remove from oven, and serve the cheese warm with crackers, crostini, or other favorite options. Enjoy!
