Broiled Feta—saganaki

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Boo Chef in West Te

Use cooking times as guidelines and check the feta often as it cooks. Cutting the feta into 1/2-inch-thick slabs is crucial here; if sliced thinner, the cheese will crumble apart, but if sliced thicker, it will not heat through. Serve with wedges of warm pita bread

Deeeelish! Wonderful summer food, great with a glass of wine. I squeezed a little lemon juice over it at the end. Thanks!

  1. Adjust an oven rack 4 inches from the broiler element and heat the broiler. Pat the feta dry with paper towels and place on a foil-lined baking sheet (or in a broiler-safe gratin dish). Sprinkle with the red pepper flakes and ground black pepper. Broil until the edges of the cheese are golden, 3 to 8 minutes. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with the parsley. Serve immediately.
