Transport yourself to the Greek Isles with this easy meze. Serve this pan-fried feta cheese with slices of ripe, red tomatoes and wedges of lemon.
loved it! very simple recipe that anyone can make yet bursting with flavours of the Greek isles. Used 1/2 quantity of dried oregano and it worked perfectly. I will always keep Feta on standby now as this makes for a very impressive light meal for guests that is made in minutes - 08 Jun 2016
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! - 03 Apr 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 10 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
