“This is such an easy appetizer that never fails to impress! People are familiar with feta, but this traditional Greek way of preparing is not as well known. The salty/sour taste of the feta offsets the heat of the chili flakes - so don't be afraid to load them on! Serve with crusty bread or toast. ”

I love baked feta, and was really looking forward to trying this recipe out, and I was definitely not disappointed. The balance of salt from the cheese, spice from the chilies, and the herbal aroma of the oregano hit the spot. But... I gave it three stars because although I enjoyed it, the flavour was a bit plain. I added some crushed garlic, and a bit of rosemary, and felt the recipe was better rounded for the changes. But since I am judging on the recipe as it, it was just a bit of a single note, so only three stars.

This recipe is simple, yet AMAZING. I don't know what that other guy was talking about, there are no additional flavors needed. Maybe he had some cheap/bad feta or an unrefined palette. Anyway, I just can't say enough about how wonderful this recipe is. When I ate it with my husband and our three year old child, we all could not stop discussing how wonderful it was with our friends for the next week. Here's a little tip: follow the recipe exactly, add nothing. It is PERFECT.

This is a traditional recipe that you'll find in tavernas and mezedopoleio (meze restaurants) all over Greece. The simple flavors and preparation should be savored! I wouldn't add anything else to this recipe, as the contrast between salty/sour and spicy, as well as the creamy texture of the baked feta, are quite enough to make a great little dish! Note that feta doesn't 'melt' the way most cheeses do, so you will fine that the slice of feta will hold its shape. It won't be spreadable either. But it should be soft and bubbly throughout. You'll want to serve right away, because the feta will harden as it cools. Enjoy!
