    Saganaki (Greek σαγανάκι, literally little frying pan) refers to various dishes prepared in Greek cuisine and is named after the single-serving frying pan in which it is cooked.

    One popular example is an appetizer of pan-seared cheese. The cheese used in saganaki cheese is usually kefalograviera, kasseri, kefalotyri, or sheep's milk feta cheese. Regional variations include the use of formaella cheese in Arachova and halloumi cheese in Cyprus. The cheese is melted in a small frying pan until it is bubbling and generally served with lemon juice and pepper. It is eaten with bread

    Other dishes that are traditionally cooked in the pan include shrimp saganaki (Greek γαρίδες σαγανάκι), and mussels saganaki (Greek μύδια σαγανάκι), which are typically feta-based and include a spicy tomato sauce.

    Love this, but can't find the cheese; thank you for the tutorial. I will print out the list of cheeses and keep it in my purse...maybe I'll get lucky.

    I love saganaki and have often wondered how it was made. Thanks for the link. Looks pretty simple.

    I don't know if regular grocery stores carry the specific cheese(s), but some of them are pretty extensive and might. However, here in Columbus, we have a cheesemonger at the French Market downtown...and he has everything. Mmmm......
