Honey Crumb Feta Cheese

Honey Feta Cheese:  A dish inspired by a recent trip around Greece, for me its the appetizers they really do best, with “honey feta” a common player in the taverna menu scene. This feta really is delicious, serve as a starter, a sharer, with a salad or simply as a bite to eat.

Serves 2. Cooking time 25 mins.

Vegetable oil, enough to fill the base of your frying pan
1 slice of bread (I’ve used brown as that’s what I had in stock, but any type will work)
1 egg
1-2 tbsp honey
1 slab (200g) of feta cheese (increase as needed, but one generally serves 2 as a starter, or 4 as a nibble)

1. Blend the bread until you are left with fine bread crumbs. Put aside in a bowl larger than the size of your feta.
2. In another bowl, crack and mix your egg with 1 tbsp of honey.
3. Heat oil in pan over a medium heat.
4. Coat the feta with the egg mixture, then immediately cover with bread crumbs. The aim here to to cover as much of the feta as you can. If there are gaps, simply spoon over some egg mixture and sprinkle on more crumbs. Once finished, lightly coat the crumbed feta with honey, about 1 tsp should be enough.
5. Transfer feta to the pan. Be careful as you may get some oil jumping out when you do this. Wait 30 seconds (or until feta turns golden) then cook for another 30 seconds on the other side.
6. Using a spatula, remove the feta from the pan. A final coat of honey on the top (again, 1 tsp should be enough) and you are done.
