I live in a very large Greek community. We enjoy Saganaki often but, this recipe is different. We use a Greek cheese called Kasseri which is a harder cheese than Feta. We follow this recipe almost...at the end of frying time, we pour one ounce of liquor over the fried cheese ( 151 rum ), then light it on fire, the put out the flame by squeezing lemon juice over it....OPA!!! It's awesome...try it this way sometime!

Since I'm Greek I have many recipes with feta. This recipe is very common in Greece but I have to admit that this one is very well provided by Elizabeth. The only comment I have to make is that we call it Saganaki.

I'm Greek and have never seen feta used for Saganaki before. I prefer harder cheeses for texture and taste. I use kefalotiri or even kefalograviera if you want a less salty cheese. Sorry, This was ok but didnt really do it for me.
