Ingredients

  • 8 oz feta cheese see notes
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 ½ teaspoon zaatar
  • 1 teaspoon oregano

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the feta on a small cast iron skillet. 
  • Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 15 minutes. 
  • Turn the broiler on and top the feta with honey, zaatar and oregano. 
  • Broil for 3-5 minutes until the top is toasted and the cheese is gooey. Top with more zaatar if desired. 
  • Serve with crackers, bread or pita chips.

Notes

  • It's best to use a block of feta in brine since it has a lot of flavor, but the ones that are in a package without brine work too. If using feta in brine, make sure to pat dry the feta just a bit before baking. 
  • The amount of honey, zaatar and oregano used in this recipe is up to you and how sweet and tangy you'd like your baked feta appetizer to be. 
  • If you don't have a small cast iron skillet, use a baking dish or any other oven safe dish.
