How to make Fried Feta with Honey and Sesame Seeds
To make this delightful Greek Fried Feta with Honey and Sesame Seeds, start by cutting the feta cheese into smaller pieces, either rectangles or triangles.
Next, prepare three plates: one with flour, one with sesame seeds and one with the beaten egg. Dredge each piece into the flour, then dip into the beaten egg, making sure to cover all sides thoroughly. Coat the feta with sesame seeds for a delightful crunch and nutty flavor.
Heat about ¼ cup (60g) of olive oil in a frying pan. Gently place the feta pieces into the pan and fry them until they turn a beautiful golden brown. Flip the feta pieces to fry the other side and edges, ensuring they are crispy all around.
Once they’re golden and crispy, carefully remove the fried feta and let them drain on paper towels to remove any excess oil.
Serve the fried feta while it’s still hot, and for an extra touch of sweetness, drizzle some honey over the top.
The creamy, salty feta is perfectly balanced by the sweet, golden honey, while the sesame seeds add a satisfying crunch. It’s a dish that captures the essence of Greek cuisine in a simple, yet incredibly satisfying way. Hope you will try this amazing dish and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you do.
