Feta from the oven is a great way for a quick and very tasty dish that will appeal to fry-eaters and lovers of Greek cuisine. The absolute condition of success is the use of the original Greek fete and not the Polish substitute, which has nothing to do with real feta. As with other dishes, there are several ways to prepare feta from the oven. Our version is based on a recipe taken in one of the taverns in Rethymnon . If the dish is to fulfill the task of a snack, we only need one feta packet for 2 people. If you want to use feta from the oven as a main course, you can combine it with Greek fried potatoes. In this case, a portion of feta can be increased to two packages (2x200g).
To prepare the dish you will need either a mixture of spices for feta sold on Greek islands (an example of the composition of the mixture: oregano, basil and thyme) or good quality oregano (preferably the mountain from Crete).
1. Cut the onion into slices and the peppers into narrow strips.
2. On a piece of aluminum foil, place about half of the onion and half of the pepper and place a slice of feta on it, which can possibly be cut in half. The design is completed by applying the remaining onion and paprika to feta. The whole is poured quite a lot with olive oil and finally sprinkle with spices.
3. Double-folded aluminum foil is now wrapped so that a package is created, which we put into the oven preheated to 200 degrees for a minimum of 20 minutes. Instead of aluminum foil, you can also use a small heat-resistant vessel, although in my opinion the foil is better in this case.
In another version of this dish you can prepare feta from the oven for example with tomatoes.
Dakos called also koukouvayia is one of the most popular meze in Crete. Some say it is a Greek bruschetta. It is a simple and fast snack, at the same time very healthy and tasty.
Tirokafteri is a popular addition to bread or pita, which can also be obtained in a tavern as meze. It can be described as a Greek paste made of feta cheese and paprika.
Grilled vegetables are often hosted on Greek tables as an addition to larger dishes or as an independent starter. In one of the taverns last year, we enjoyed a grilled pepper stuffed with feta cheese. Delicious and very fast to prepare. It tastes brilliantly combined with ordinary fried potatoes sprinkled with herbs.
