Although this recipe involves honey, it isn’t a dessert. It’s a traditional appetizer or meze that is commonly served on the island of Crete as well as throughout Greece.

Greek Style Feta Cheese with Honey (Feta me Meli) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 12 ounce block of feta cheese cut into 4 even rectangles of 3 ounces each
  • 4 sheets phyllo dough (use gluten free phyllo if following a gluten free diet)
  • 2 tablespoons Greek olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon water

How to Make Greek Cheese With Honey:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fold one sheet of phyllo in half and place one block of feta into the center. Fold into an envelop shape and place on a small baking sheet. Repeat with the other three blogs of feta.

Brush each phyllo envelope with olive oil and sprinkle the sesame seeds evenly over all four of them. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until golden. This should take about 15-20 minutes.

While the feta packets are baking in the oven, mix the honey, vinegar, and water in a small dish. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over all four of the feta and phyllo packets right when it comes out of the oven.
