Baked Feta Cheese ~ my recipe

Hello everyone!!

It's been a crazy year....maybe the longest break I ever had from my blog. Many things have happened, I'm now back in Colorado with my family probably for good. I will always keep California in my heart as well as all the wonderful places and people I've encountered these last 11 years. My new daily routine helps me now to go back to writing and posting things I like, here on my blog. 

As you already know, cooking is one of my favorite hobbies, I love to share my recipes and try new things. Yesterday I tried a NEW one!! It's a Greek dish. I've never been to Greece, I've seen many pictures of the beautiful sea, which reminds me of the sea where I grew up in the South of Italy.. {it's only 300 miles from my hometown...}

Milos, Greece

Gorgeous, isn't it? So...with images like this in my head, dreaming to be floating on those crystal waters, I decided to cook one of their typical dishes: Baked Feta Cheese.
It's incredibly simple and so delicious!

This is the one I did

All you need is this {it serves 1 or 2 people} :

  • FETA cheese, 8 ounces (not crumbled)
  • Extra Virgin OLIVE OIL, a generous drizzle
  • Kalamata Olives, a handful (I used green olives, they were also good)
  • 1 Red Onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 Ripe Tomatoes, sliced
  • Salt
  • Oregano
  1. Drizzle a baking dish with the olive oil, add the sliced onion, tomatoes and olives. Add a little salt and oregano.
  2. Add the whole piece of Feta cheese on top of the veggies. Sprinkle some oil and oregano on top.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in oven at 350 degrees.
  4. Enjoy with a piece of bread!



Buon appetito!!!

Let me know if you try this dish and how it came out! I'd love to hear!

Love for now.
