451549431Greek Pan Seared Cheese (Saganaki) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Kasseri or Kefalotiri Cheese
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup flour for coating (use gluten-free flour if following a gluten-free diet)
  • 2 lemons cut into wedges

How to Make Saganaki:

Cut Cheese into half inch thick squares (about 3 inches wide).

Dip cheese into cold water to moisten, and then dip in the flour to coat.

In a heavy skillet, heat the olive oil and sear each slice until golden brown and the cheese heats through.  If the pan is small use a tablespoon of fresh oil for each piece of cheese to be seared.

Saganaki is best served hot with a last minute squeeze of lemon over it.
