Broiled Brandy Saganaki

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Mrs Goodall

Most saganaki seems to be fried with ouzo. Thought this might be a good alternative for those who don't want to "fry" or don't have ouzo on hand. Got this recipe from "Food Festival USA" cookbook. Haven't tried it yet, but it sounds good! Posted for ZWT II - Greece

Perfection!! This is exactly how the Greek restaurants do it here in Chicago. I can't understand why it doesn't have more reviews and 5 stars! Opa!!
